The Waiting Game + My PLN Re-Introduction

My first child was to be born last Thursday, April 5. My wife, Kathryn, and I are always late. And so is our first son. He’s our creation after all.

The waiting game continues…

But in the meantime… I’m back. After originally starting up PLN’s communications and blog some four years ago, I’m back to take up the reins with a fresh baby on the way. And that’s where you come in, PLN moms & dads.

I need your help.

I’ve learned a wealth of knowledge in my time with PLN thus far. I’ve been part of Luckiest Baby reveals from St. John’s, Newfoundland across to Castlegar, British Columbia. I’ve reviewed car seats, Diono strollers, new Fisher-Price toys, and the photographer on set for mother’s discussing best breastfeeding techniques. I’ve already learned a lot.

New Directions + You

Relatable. This is the new direction PLN is taking with its content. Our children bond us all together; that’s how we relate to one another. Religion, sex, wealth, race or creed don’t define our bond. I want PLN’s content to be fresh, honest, credible, supportive, whip-smart, trustworthy and valuable for all. Our content will range from verticals focused on pregnancy, baby, young children, home life and parenting life in general. This will be reflected across our blog, social media channels and email newsletters.

So, what do you say? Wanna be a part of supporting other moms and dads? Wanna contribute to Parent Life Network and make a change in another parent’s life? Want to give us your best advice? I invite you to send me your article pitches. Keep them to a couple sentences each, with what sources you will use/interview, the goal of the article and any other writing samples you have. Please email your pitches to: ryanbolton [at] parentlifenetwork.com. Published articles will be paid.

Lastly, if you don’t get a quick response back… know that my son might have decided to come hang out, instead of continuing to sleep-in. Xo
