Three months ago, we said we wanted to add a new face to our mom blogger team.
Ninety people applied for that position.
After thoroughly reading each blog sample, we’ve whittled that number down to our Top 4 candidates – Chris Donnelly, Cathy Keck Adcock, Tunette Powell and Lisa McFarland. Their blogs were witty, insightful and entertaining.
This week, you’ll read a guest blog from each of the candidates.
The blogs should inform, entertain, enlighten and spark meaningful conversations. Tell us what you think of each post by leaving a comment at the end of the blog or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
