We received some fabulous feedback on our demographic survey in December. One of the questions we enjoyed reading answers to the most was “Is there anything you would like to see more of on TMoM? Do you have blog ideas?” You all shared some terrific blog ideas with us and we are busy contacting people to write about many of these items right now!
We also noticed that there were many blog topic suggestions that we have written about previously. This showed us that we should probably point out these blogs to you so you can find them on the site! I have compiled a list below of some of the top requested blogs. For the future, one of the easiest ways to locate what you might need is to type key words into the purple search box on the right. Finally, you can always click on one of the categories in grey at the topic of the site (events, food, directories, etc.)
Here are some of the top requested blog topics! Enjoy …
How to meet other moms/playgroup ideas:
Click on the Resources Category & you will see the sub-cat, Parent/Child Groups.
As you scroll down the page you will see blogs about different classes, playgroups and MOPS groups. If you have more ideas to share, we would love for you to blog on this topic! Just email Rachel@triadmomsonmain.com.
This of course covers a wide spectrum, but the best place to find parenting advice is under the Family category and then the sub-cat Raising Children.
You can scroll through the blogs to get a variety of blog topics. Hopefully one will relate to you and your situation! Another place you can check for specific age groups is under the Family category, and sub-cats Babies or Teens & Tweens. We also have blogs under the Education Category under your child’s age group.
We’ve got a bunch of these, written by Disney specialists and other moms. Click on Travel and then Disney!
Everyone loves to read about local events! Many times we will post an afternoon blog with a brief write-up on an event. We will also link this on Facebook and Twitter. These can be found under Parks & Rec and Local Events. One reader wrote, “I just wish I could find out about events sooner.” Have no fear! Our Events Calendar page can be found by clicking the wordEvents at the top of the site. We update our calendar usually one month in advance and then continue to add in additional items as we are notified.
You can always find these under Parks & Rec and then Camps or by clicking on our Directories Tab at the top of the site. As you scroll down, you will see the links for Summer Camps and Vacation Bible Schools.

I recently wrote a blog on this that you can find under the Education category. It is called Finding the Right School for your Child and has numerous helpful links.
