Our founding Momma moves on
It's with sad hearts that we say goodbye to our good friend and founding Momma of this Whoa, Momma! blog, Sherry Robinson. While she moves on to greener pastures, we hope she will still jump into our debates and discussions as a "civilian." Here's her final post --EDS
Two years ago, when we started this blog and the Go Momma! web page for the St. Petersburg Times, I had a goal in mind: Create a place for parents to discuss what's important to them.
We would help new parents learn some of the hard-won lessons of the more experienced moms and dads, and offer consumer tips that everyone can use, such as the weekly free-and-cheap list of things to do with your kids. We would give them a go-to spot on the web to find out about and comment on the important and interesting things that are of paramount importance to parents.
I can't say it has been easy pulling this off. I couldn't have done it without all of my eager and knowledgeable volunteer helpers -- especially my good friend Sharon Kennedy Wynne, who will be helming this blog now. And even more important to our success was you -- all of you -- our awesome readers, who were never shy about weighing in on the things you cared about.
Now it's time for me to move on to a new job. I will miss our exchanges (and some of the funnier jokes) but I hope what we did made a difference in your lives. Thanks for sharing your time with me.
