Ask a Mom of Multiples
Ask a Mom of Multiples
In her pre-baby days, Liz J was a guidance counselor, college advisor, and admissions counselor with a Master's Degree in School Counseling from Boston University. When her first pregnancy turned out to be a two-fer, though, life was turned upside down. Liz is a full-time mom to boy/girl twin toddlers, and has been blogging since the very first days of her pregnancy. She has worked on multiple platforms and sometimes feels adventurous with her self-taught HTML. (Sometimes not.) And she's a nut with her DSLR camera. She loves giving advice, solicited or otherwise, about anything from blogging philosophy and writing style to homemade baby food and nap schedules. Most of all, she hopes that writing about her own experiences will help others feel less isolated and maybe even become more confident moms, bloggers, and more.
In addition to her personal blog, she founded How Do You Do It?, a site by and for moms of multiples, and the Ladies of Loserville, a weight-loss support community blog.
