Hello! With this post you’ll notice a new look to Mommy Footprint. After three years of growing this website, it has become a database containing hundreds of articles geared to parents on a greener journey with raising children. To mark Mommy Footprint’s third year, my friend and co-worker for the site recommended a make-over. I’m thrilled with the results and I think the site has a much cleaner, easier to read layout. I’d like to thank the countless subscribers and people that have supported this blog over the years – it’s very close to my heart and will always remain a place that is driven by content & research. I will always cover companies and products that are fabulous and I usually have a sponsor that I like to support with links to their site. These sponsors are compatible with my blog because I’ve found their products to be safe and I’m passionate about supporting them.
I’d like to say a special thanks to Dave Zille for 3 years of encouragement and technical support with Mommy Footprint. I often get asked by moms where they can get a blog template just like mine – Dave would be the person to contact…from setting up your own domain and working with you to customize your website requirements. Also a huge thanks to Marina Duque for the custom banner and new Twitter background that truly reflects where the focus of my writing comes from – my children. She’s very creative and works quickly…thank you so much!
Three years later I can answer my site’s tag-line “…what will your legacy be?” I hope my legacy will include children that learn respect for the environment and seek to find ways to improve the world they were born into. And for myself…everytime I learn about a new place chemicals exist – I think there couldn’t possibly be more. But there always is and wait for the day our children look at us proud that our generation turned the tide and made a difference for future generations with chemical exposure. Becoming a parent shouldn’t involve so much research and self-doubt about everything that surrounds our children. One day products sold on store shelves will be properly regulated and something toxic that’s a known carcinogen will not be sold! Before I feel a rant coming….I’ll stop. And just say “thank you” for the encouragement to keep writing and finding my own journey.
