The Pressure to Attend Every Game—on the Huffington Post!

Excited to report that last week’s post about the dread I feel if I cannot attend my son’s games is featured in Huffington Post’s “Parents” section this week. My original post became an excellent jumping off point for conversation in the comments section here. I think it’s fantastic that as a parenting (and grandparenting) community we can express our opinions and help each other brainstorm.

If you have something new to say, or you’re chiming in for the first time, I encourage you to do so there. (I’m closing comments on this  space for the week.)

While you’re clicking links, I have an one-week old Facebook “fan” page for my blog. Would absolutely love for you to “LIKE” it. Facebook has a dreadful system that somehow connects the amount of “likes” to whether or not posts show up in others’ newsfeeds. To tell you the truth, I’m not exactly sure how the algorithm works, I just know that in the world of Facebook, “likes” are an important commodity.

And to further complicate things, Facebook doesn’t count “likes” from other fan pages, just from “real” people. So if you have a fan page and you’re trying to help out other bloggers, you have to like a page twice (once with your real account then again with your fan page.) Good thing I love social media, or I’d give up RIGHT NOW.

On a brighter note, wishing everyone a wonderful Independence Day! Nina :)
