Mom Central Canada ~ Blogger Grants
I am so proud and humbled to announce that I am one of the lucky recipients of the spring round of Blogger Grants from Mom Central Canada!
I can recall being so excited that Mom Central was coming to Canada, back in May 2009. It has been amazing to watch Mom Central grow in Canada, and they are continually expanding. I am really grateful for all the opportunities that they have offered me. It is an amazing community that supports Canadian bloggers, and recognizes that our voices are meant and worth being heard. (I am not just saying this because I was a winner, I sincerely feel this way) If you are a blogger in Canada, be sure to take a look and become a Mom Central Blogger, if you haven't already.
Now, for my idea which was chosen by the judges....
I am in the process of interviewing and researching my idea which centers around the challenges and struggles which tweens and teens face in todays world. I quickly realized that while some aspects are the same as when I was 12 - 16 years old, times have changed and making the right choices is more complex. I am striving to write a post which reflects what it really means to be a tween/teen girl in 2011, and hopefully be a resource to where they can find support, from my vantage point of small town rural Ontario.
Thank you to Mom Central Canada for this opportunity and, I look forward to reading the posts of the other recipients!
