Working Mommy Wednesday

Welcome to another Working Mommy Wednesday. I've finally updated the button to match back to my website, you can access it from my side bar. This week's prompt is:

Share a blog or website that you’ve found meaningful and rewarding to visit (if it's Pinterest please share why this has become such a raging fad).

I love finding new blogs that inspire and enrich my life and I'd like to share the following with you:

WORKING MOTHER
I use this blog to find ideas for prompts on WMW. I'm considering joining the community as a working mommy blogger, I thought this might be a good opportunity to share with all of you and perhaps you'd be interested in joining as well. In fact, one of our WMW members, Be Positive Mom, is already on there! How cool is that!!!

STILL THE SEA
This website is in it's infancy but plans to offer Christian Yoga DVD's very soon. You can already purchase yoga equipment beautifully printed with Bible verses. In addition, the creator writes a very inspiring blog, most recently about her 10 day visit to Nepal to help trafficked children return to their birth parents. I really can't say enough about her wonderful writing style except to go check it out.

PINTEREST
What is it??? It's a website that lets you pin images to a virtual board. How often do you browse internet shops thinking, I like that dress or I wish I had that coat some day. Now you can pin it to a fashion board and build a collection of things you want. I did this recently, to update my fall wardrobe. It was fun for a few days and now I don't know if I have a reason to go back. I keep seeing people on Twitter obsessing over the site. So if you have any insight as to how to better use it, please enlighten me.

Finally, thanks for joining me on Twitter. It's fun to find our little community growing in social media. Once again I've made a hashtag called WMWpals. Hope to see your blog posts on Twitter again this week!

I have no help on pinterest. I mostly like looking at what other people are pinning, but I haven't gone back to look at my own pins. I loved Working MOther, though! I hadn't gone there until you mentioned it.

I am obsessed, OBSESSED with Pinterest.

When I was planning my wedding (and there was no Pinterest) I made small collages (old skool cut & paste) with all my wedding ideas. Pinterest would've come in handy back then.

Right now I'm using it for ideas and projects that I would like to do in the future. Like redesign the boys' bedrooms, baking I would like to try, new bar stools I want to buy, fashion, etc.

I'm very new to it, and loving it. I believe this is my Pinterest --- http://pinterest.com/ninacaterina/ --- if you want to take a look at what I'm pinning :)

Rachel,
Typically, I don't do link-ups because I just can't seem to plan ahead, but this went along perfectly with the post I already started. Thanks for thinking to ask me! Can't wait to check your good blog leads out.

Hi Rachel!

Thank you so much for the link to working Mother. I love their blogging community! I didn't get a chance to write and link up for WMW this week but plan to jump back on board next week... first time in teh last year and a half I didn't post for almost a week. Strange! Love the new button for the group, too...

Thanks!
Steph
