Moms and Dads of All Ages: Here’s Your Chance to Become A Blogger
Lawrence General Hospital and Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center are sponsoring a “Moms, Dads and Docs” blog contest now through October 11, 2013. Mothers and fathers of all ages in the Merrimack Valley area of Massachusetts are invited to enter the blog contest.
Through the “Moms, Dads and Docs” blog contest, the hospitals plan to select four area moms and four area dads to be featured as permanent bloggers. Each month their posts will appear on the Together For Healthy Kids website at http://togetherforhealthykids.com. Moms and dads that are selected as bloggers will receive a $250 cash prize.
“Today’s parents really want to connect with one another and share the experiences that they have with their families,” said Medical Director, Pediatric Hospitalist Service at Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center and Lawrence General Hospital, Dan Hale, M.D., FAAP. “By following a parenting blog, this is a great, simple way in which parents can gain inspiration and obtain new ideas for handling the demands of being caregivers, spouses, professionals, multi-taskers, volunteers and parents.”
In addition to bloggers being chosen from the Merrimack Valley area, several pediatricians will also contribute blog posts on a regular basis. Readers can expect to find an abundance of helpful health information as an important ingredient in the forum’s content. Pediatricians will be providing advice on a wide range of health issues ranging from autism, concussions, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), juvenile diabetes, headaches to tips for teaching healthy eating habits.
How To Enter:
To enter the “Moms, Dads and Docs” blog contest, visit the blog at http://togetherforhealthykids.com and post a short written explanation stating why you’d be a great mom or dad blogger. If your post is persuasive – whether if it’s funny, touching or engaging – you could be one of eight area moms and dads selected for a $250 prize and the opportunity to become a featured blogger on the “Moms, Dads & Docs” blog.
Each of the selected bloggers will write at least one post a month. The topics will vary greatly, depending on the personalities of the bloggers and their daily experiences in the community. The bloggers will meet in person twice a year at “blogger brunches” to share ideas and brainstorm upcoming topics. All bloggers will receive some basic training and instruction prior to writing their first blog post.
