Weekend links

This week marks the one year anniversary of the launch of Simple Living Media! In some ways, this year has just flown by, but in other ways, I can’t believe it’s only been one year. Simple Mom started in mid-February 2008; Simple Kids was January 2009, and the other three launched a year ago this weekend.

SLM Contributors and editors hang out, Blissdom style! Top, L to R: Maya Bisineer, Jamie Martin, Kara Fleck, me, Shaina Olmanson, Katie Kimball. Bottom, L to R: Emily Carter, Mandi Ehman, Nicole Bennett, Aimée Wimbush-Bourque, Katie Clemons.

SLM would not be what it is without the fabulous editors and contributors to each of those sites. In today’s weekend links, I also wanted to share some of my favorite posts from each of these channels, in no particular order:

I read everyone’s posts and I really am so inspired and encouraged. To those of you who contribute to the sites, thank you. I am blessed to write alongside you!

  1. It was great to meet you last week, as well as some of your team! I love SLM!

  2. Hi, Tsh! I hope you don’t mind, but I mentioned Simple Mom on my last blog entry: http://daintymom.blogspot.com/2011/02/5-job-ideas-for-potential-work-at-home.html Happy Sunday from the sunny islands of the Philippines! Thanks for making SM so wonderful! I especially look forward to anything your write about productivity. Hopefully I can find a way to order your book and have it delivered to Manila! God bless you, always.

  3. Hi Tsh,
    Thanks so much for including 7 Ways to Work Successfully With Toddlers in Tow – this has been a very popular article on TMM.

    Congratulations on the one year anniversary of SLM! Wishing you continued success!

    So happy to be a Simple Mom contributor! 😀

  4. Meeting all of you was one of the highlights for me at Blissdom! Thanks for letting me be a part of such an amazing group. Hope you don’t mind if I use this picture? I didn’t get one with my camera.

  5. CONGRATS, CONGRATS on the one year celebration! The team at SLM represents some of the most powerful, thoughtful, and insightful writing being published today. I am continually ridiculously humbled to be a part of this group.

    Love the link list. Congrats again all around! ♥

  6. I loved the toddler link and was happy to see some articles I missed the first time around. Happy Anniversary. 🙂

  7. Congrats!

    I’ve already been so blessed by all the contributors here at Simple Mom. Thank you!

    All those links you posted are sure to keep me busy when I get some ‘Mommy time’ today!

    Blessings to you,
    Kate 🙂
