Meet Live-Do-Grow

Live.Do.Grow.  Three little words that were born from a list to find my “why” many months ago. Live.Do.Grow. An evolution in thinking and realization of my purpose and passion.   Which is why I have taken flight, to a new home. A new space to tell the Live.Do.Grow. story of making every moment matter. A […]

Evolution of a Blogger

June 28, 2012
The Evolution of a Blogger | Ciao Mom

Almost three years ago I was sitting on my couch, home with Principessa, my at that time almost five year old daughter, both of us ridden with strep throat. Newly engaged, planning my second wedding, I remember that day well. My fingers keyed in a URL and I came upon Blogger, with the specific purpose […]

What happens when your blog content is in transition | Ciao Mom

Telling the story. Living life one moment at a time. That is what I say when I am asked what I write about here on Ciao Mom. Except that I have realized lately that I seem to be telling a very different story from the one that I started to tell almost three years ago. […]

listen to your mother dc | Ciao Mom

The DC Listen to Your Mother Show was three days ago. Since then I have been bombarded with questions. How was the show? Were you nervous? What was it like? Will there be another show? The truth is that I am not sure I can put my experience stepping onto the Listen to Your Mother […]

What I learned at Mom 2.0 | Ciao Mom

Mom 2.0… Two and a half days. Amazing women. Inspiring women. Passionate and intelligent women. A shared desire to learn, to reflect, to connect, and to move forward.

Brain Overload | Ciao Mom

Late last week, the Mom 2.0 Summit took over the Ritz Carlton in Key Biscayne Florida.  Over 300 social media writers, marketers, and explorers engaged in conversation, learning, and networking. But also? This conference…this fabulous three days…left my brain on overload. Not only did I learn and reflect but I had a MONSTER of an […]

Setting Your Social Media Path | Ciao Mom

Two days from now I will be in Key Biscayne Florida, wearing a bathing suit cover up layered over a tank top and leggings for the Mom 2.o Summit white party. An out of office email response will appear to anyone that sends me “teacher” work emails as I take two work days off to […]

why-blogs-are-not-dying | Ciao Mom

“Blogs are slogs” according to a USA Today article by Roger Wu on April 20. “With the emergence of social media, more companies are replacing blogs with nimbler tools requiring less time and resources…” My dad, who I might consider hiring to develop my (non existent) business plan for my transition from teaching to writing/social […]

5-ways-the-blogging-community-improves-life | Ciao Mom

I am home this morning. Getting ready for my trip to the hospital, where my favorite doctor will use a camera and tubes and who knows what else to remove the part of me that was a home to Principessa for nine months.  My hysterectomy is not until 1:30, which means that I have the […]
