Spread the Word

ParentDish is your online home for the best advice, news, opinions and reviews for moms and dads who want to be informed, educated parents. Tens of thousands of people read our blog every day, and we'd love for our community to continue growing into the most active, engaging place for parents on the Internet. We wouldn't exist with our wonderfully supportive readers, and with your help we can broaden that base -- working together to make the ideas and information exchanged here even more exciting!

It's easy to share your favorite stories on ParentDish with everyone you know -- both online and off. Here's a few of the methods we've found most helpful -- please let us know of any we've missed in the comments!

Social News

Communities like Reddit, StumbleUpon, Delicious, Digg, and Kirtsy are full of passionate people who love to find and promote the coolest content on the web. After you've joined one of these communities, it's simply to submit the best ParentDish stories to the world at large. Look out for the "Share" link at the bottom of our posts -- you only have to hover over it with your mouse to see a shortlist of the largest social news and networking sites. Just pick your favorite and voila! That brings us to...

Social Networking

Did you know you can also share stories you love using Facebook, AIM Instant Messenger, Bebo and Twitter (just to name a few)? These sites are also listed when you hover over the "Share" link -- just find the one you'd like to use, click, and you're done!

Let's Be Friends

Are you keeping up to date with friends and family using social news or networking sites? So are we! ParentDish is about more than our daily posting schedule, so don't hesitate to connect with us on Facebook, Bebo and Twitter.

Other Blogs

We're focused on creating content that both celebrates and sparks discussion about the most pressing parenting issues. While we're mostly interested producing original material, you'll find some great blogs focused on collecting interesting posts and articles from around the Internet. Blogs like Neatorama accept tips and suggestions from readers, as do many personal bloggers (even Dooce!) who routinely link out to the best the Internet has to offer.

Don't Forget Email

Of course before there was dozens of websites dedicated to sharing news, we emailed the best links to our friends and family. Just click "Email this" at the bottom of any of our posts and enter the address -- it's as easy as that!
