It's A Tidal Wave – I Mean a BlogTide

How often have you heard the term, back linking? If you write a blog and you want people to read your blog, you know the importance of back linking. And if you don't know it yet, you will eventually learn that you have to have it in order to succeed in the blogging world.

According to wikipedia.org, "Search engines often use the number of back links that a website has as one of the most important factors for determining that website's search engine ranking, popularity and importance. Google's description of their PageRank system, for instance, notes that Google interprets a link from page A to page B as a vote, by page A, for page B."

So how can you improve your back links? By joining BlogTide.

Started only about three weeks ago to give bloggers an opportunity to share blogs via hundreds of social bookmarking services available, BlogTide takes back linking to the next level.

It's really quite simple: Back links help authors, and BlogTide provides back links.

ANYBODY can join. Anybody, that is, except Spammers. Absolutely, unequivocally NO SPAMMING ALLOWED! And NO SCAMMING ALLOWED!  The creator of BlogTide is very protective of BlogTide members.

As a matter of fact, BlogTide's creator cares so much about the privacy of BlogTide members, he recommends setting your privacy at "Friends only viewing."

If you're looking for what BlogTide's creator defines as, "friendly social networking,"  and you want to increase your back links, you'll want to check out BlogTide by clicking any of the links in this blog.

If you would like Your Blog Connection to showcase your blog, please contact me through one of my other blogs, Your Weird Dreams at: weirddreams@mail.com

Parent Successfully

Parenting is a tough job. Ask any parent. When Hillary Rodham Clinton repeated the old African proverb, "It takes a village to raise a child," she wasn't kidding. Parents need all the help they can get.

And one of the places that offers a plethora of information to help parents raise their children successfully is a web site entitled, Parent Successfully. Parent Successfully offers parents more than just one blog too. As a matter of fact, it offers FOURTEEN blogs.

Begun in November 2009 by the mother-daughter team of Lyn Lomasi and Jaipi Sixbear, Parent Successfully offers parents links to important articles written by Lomasi and Sixbear and numerous other writers who share tips and information on raising children successfully.

Maintained by Lomasi, Sixbear, and two of Lomasi's daughters, Parent Successfully was created when Lyn and Jaipi looked for a place to share advice and tips with other parents. Realizing that "no one person knows every single thing about parenting," and that no other web site offered a "one-size-fits-all approach to everything," they decided to create their own.

According to Lyn, "When parents come together and share their different methods, it can make many things run smoother. Doing so gives people ideas they may not have thought of otherwise."

Who is most likely to read their blogs? "Parents, parents-to-be, and educators," among others.

Kids, too, will enjoy Parent Successfully, because Lyn's 11-year old daughter writes one of the blogs. Parent Successfully often posts links to web sites aimed at children and they offer activities for kids as well.

Along with the blog posts and article links about a variety of issues related to parenting, Parent Successfully provides "forums for more in-depth discussion."

Chances are, if you're looking for information related to raising children successfully, you'll find whatever you need at Parent Successfully.
