Got Questions, Find Answers

Yesterday, I did a career fair at the local library and while I was there I had a few moments to chat with the guy sitting next to me. He was probably in his early 20's and worked at a family owned book store. He went on to tell me that here in our county, there has been a sharp rise in teen pregnancies with girls as young as 13 getting pregnant. I can't imagine this because when I was 13, I don't even remember being interested in boys. Those kids that are having kids, have got to have questions about the changes that are happening to their bodies, so where do they go for help? The first choice of course would be to talk to their doctor or parents, but they can also find help online. So, if you are pregnant or thinking of getting pregnant, you can get answers to many of the following questions:

-How do I know when I am most fertile?
-How do I know my pregnancy is going smoothly?
-How should I be feeling in each trimester?
-What are gender neutral colors to paint the nursery?
-Should I know ahead of time if it is a boy or a girl?

Luckily, in our County there is a Pregnancy Center that has gotten some new funding that can help out some of these young mothers.

I am making the rounds to SlogBite member sites and using SlogBite’s “Slog-a-Blog” to make the site choices for me, and this time your site was chosen. If you haven’t tried it you really should give it whirl. http://www.slogbite.com/particpant-features/slog-a-blog

BTW, I am in the process of making the SlogBite categories even more granular. I want to enable you, and all SB members, to create an accurate profile of your site using the SB categories to show off your best and/or your most important posts/articles. Therefore, if you have the time, please let me know what additional categories you would join if I created them. You can, and should get very specific. Take a look at SB's category list and leave a comment as to what else you would like to see. http://www.slogbite.com/joining-slogbite/category-list

You should also consider joining some additional categories. The more categories you join the more exposure you get on member sites and the better your chances of being selected on SlogBite's Slog-a-Blog game, as described above. I want SlogBite to be an accurate refection of what your site is all about, a resume of sorts. Also, let me know if you would like a “View My SlogBite Profile” badge. This will direct your readers to your “Profile” page on SlogBite. Just email me your request at mkaye@slogbite.com. Let me know what color (red, orange, pink, yellow, blue, purple, green or tan.)
