We all know that in the Mommy Blogosphere, nothing is as valuable for success as networking. Mommy’s Links offers local Mommy Bloggers our NY Metro Mommy Blogger Network. Pretty simple. Mommy’s Links includes your button and bio on our network page and list your blog in our blogroll (which appears on ALL of our blogs in the right sidebar). We share leads for blogger opportunities, reviews, giveaways and events as we get them, based on your neck of the woods, your blog’s focus, your kids’ ages, etc.
In return, we ask that you put our button or banner on your site and periodically post to your readers about our social network for local moms.
Our whole goal is cross-promoting and growing together. If that is something that interests you, let us know! Would love to include you! Email Jennifer to get started! You can also fill in the form HERE and Jennifer will contact you directly with more info!

||Me, Myself and Baby I, Lainie Gutterman – Before giving birth to her son in 2009 and becoming a stay-at-home mom, Lainie was a founding partner of a Public Relations firm. Lainie describes herself as “a natural born publicist who is constantly spreading the word about new products, activities and events.” When Lainie is not chasing after her son or they are not watching Nick Jr or reading together, she scrapbooks and writes posts for her blog, “Me, Myself & Baby I“. Lainie and her family live in New York City, where she sacrifices living space (but not style) to be in the center of it all in “the city that never sleeps.” (Fortunately, her toddler is a sound sleeper who doesn’t rise until after 9am, on most days.)|

|My name is Tanya Lindin and I am an Aussie Mom (Mum) living in Manhattan. I have two wonderful daughter aged 7 and 2. My husband and I decided to relocate here to NY a year ago. I like to tell people we decided to have our “mid life crisis” in Manhattan. I decided to write a blog to keep all my friends and family back home updated as to my new adventure. It is now something I enjoy doing and hope to give to my daughters when they grow up to realize how lucky they were to have lived here. I have had so many emails from women who have actually found my blog empowering which blows me away. I think as Moms get older we get so stuck in our ways. I am so glad I have been able in my 40’s to something I thought I would never do and that is to live in the most exciting city in the world.|

|Valley Stream Mom founder Kimberly L. Thomas really wanted to try and remain anonymous, but let’s face it, Valley Stream is a small community the more active you are in it. So, here it goes! She is a blogger, publicist, pageant coach/director, event planner, and has an organization that empowers teen girls through community service, education, philanthropy, and leadership development. She is involved in all things girly. Kimberly is also a tennis, dance, and swim instructor. She created this blog with families such as yours in mind. Moving to Valley Stream just under 5 years ago, she found it difficult to find programs and events suitable for her young family. She felt as if everyone kept to themselves, didn’t play in public places where her kids could meet other kids, thus making it extremely difficult to fully enjoy the community and all it had to offer. After finding programs inside and outside of the community, she decided to bring it all together in a one stop shop, thus the creation of http://www.valleystreammom.com/ . Kimberly has been married for 8 years to a wonderful man, and they have a 5 year old and a 3 year old son.|
| Melissa Moreau Online: I grew up in a small town about an hour out of New York City along the Hudson River. Permanently etched in my mind are perfectly manicured yards of endless green grass, hobby shops, craft stores and spring street fairs boasting farm fresh delectable food. It was at that moment a seed was planted.
I’ve been inspired by the amazing and life altering benefits of eating healthier and incorporating a green state of mind. I’ve spent years learning different ways to make this a possibility not only for myself but for others, even on a tight budget. I’m dedicated to providing my family the best and now I offer the same to you!
