When I think about how I could describe this blog, one phrase comes to mind: We’ve come a long way, baby!!!
Long Island Parent Source was born back in 2006, a third child for our family, if you will. At the time, my kids were 3 1/2 and brand new, and I was beyond happy to help others navigate the complex parenting world of Long Island. As a full time working mom, I was constantly short on time and spent weekend after weekend running errands and getting everything ready for the coming week. Frustrated with finding out about great events after they had already happened, LongIsland Parent Source became every parents’ best friend who kept them “in the know”, with tons of information on local resources, events and more in one spot on the web.
As I write this, I can’t believe that just about 8 years have passed since the first incarnation of Long Island Parent Source (I remember it was very yellow!!), and we are changing with the times! Local families can still find the same information about local resources and events, and if you’re not local to our amazing island, you should definitely come visit us, but even if you’re not planning to travel here, you’ll find that the posts here about parenting, product reviews and more are still relevant to you! As a blog, it’s so much easier to be interactive and I’m thrilled to be able to expand our reach readers who may live beyond our shores (did I mention you should come visit us?). No matter where you’re from, I hope our little corner of the Internet can take away some of that overwhelmed feeling you get when you are looking for information.
