Blog Needs Some Lovin' and Mom Power!

I've been neglecting this blog lately. And that's wrong. It didn't do anything to deserve that!
Things with Green Mommy Guide are really taking off, getting more and more readers and email subscribers every day. I recently read an article in O Magazine talking about how "Soccer Moms" are going to be the ones who change the world when it comes to going green. While I bristle at the term "soccer mom" because I find it dismissive (especially when they use it during elections!), I agree that this change will be largely initiated by moms. We are the ones who largely make the purchasing decisions for the household, and we live in a profit-driven society. We are the ones who are vocal about getting pesticides out of our children's foods, vaccines, and clothing. We are the ones who can connect with each other, be it in person or online, to create a movement.
Anyway, feel free to check back here often for updates and random thoughts and to leave you feedback about Green Mommy Guide. I need your help to keep the site growing!
