I am getting my blogging butt out of my chair and am re-vamping my blogs. I will still be on them but not really blogging on them very often.

I need your input. I have 6 blogs (I know, can you believe it) and I am doing an audit of all of them. I would like all my readers...and anyone who just comes across my blogs in the next few weeks to give me your:

  • comments
  • questions
  • concerns
  • advice

Just click on the picture below to be taken to a list of my blogs.

Any and all comments you have to improve on my blogs are welcome. I have had them going for almost 6 months now and with the new year, I am going to be doing more with my blogging.

I am also looking for other bloggers/website owners:

  • Mommy bloggers
  • Iowa bloggers
  • Family Friendly bloggers
  • Arts, crafts, food, scrapbooking, sewing, etc. bloggers
  • Plus sized men & women bloggers
  • Multiple birth parents/bloggers
  • Freelance writing & problogging bloggers
  • Family Friendly websites

I am interested in any bloggers/website owners who would be interested in getting some free advertising for their blogs/websites. I am looking for people to guest post on my blogs, to interview in their chosen field, and anyone who would be willing to donate or give me a large discount on products for upcoming give-a-way contests I will be holding beginning the first of the year. Again, this is a great way for you to get free advertising for your blogs, websites, and products.

I am also looking for budget friendly graphic artists & blogger and wordpress template creators and designers. I am looking for someone to help me change the look of my blogs. I am looking for something fun, family friendly, and fantastic.

If you are interested in free advertising and helping me take my blogs to the next level, please comment on this post or e-mail me at cathicollins (at) gmail (dot) com.

I can't wait to hear from you.

I saw your posting on the Work It Mom forum and thought I'd come on over and check it out. I like this blog and I love the topics selected. It's very down to earth and real. Keep it going.

I'd like to exchange links. I have a blog/podcast called Tales of a Single Parent at

I'm going to look at your other blogs. I also wanted to give you this url of free blogger templates. You may find one you like:

I don't know how much these ladies charge, but they design some really awesome looking blogs/sites:

Good luck and keep in touch..

Sounds like you have some work cut out for you. I can't imagine trying to keep up with 6 blogs! wow!

I had a very reasonable priced friend do mine. She did mine for free, but she didn't charge much for anyone else. The only problem is she gave it up. :( I would definately get rid of the common blogger layout and make it something that is reflective of you, your personality or life. Also, not sure what type of people or topics you are looking for in regards to interviews or guest writers, but I might be interested in giving it a shot. I have a lot of knowledge regarding Down syndrome, prenatal testing, special needs, parenting, nursing, etc... I guess it all depends on what you are looking for in regards to that. Good luck with the revamping!
