Danielle Ciavarro of Smelly Danielly
I started my blog many years ago. Long before social media was a thing. Long before everyone and their brother was an internet personality. I started my blog as a way to tell my stories, to document my adventures, and to connect with people. Along the way I made a lot of friends, met my husband, went on trips, survived thyroid cancer and had a baby. Now we live a cute little life filled with backyard animals, home renovations and toddler antics.
Alana Pace, Parenting From the Heart
Six months into parenthood with her first, Alana Pace found herself holding another positive pregnancy test. As her disbelief subsided, she knew in order to manage life with two under two, she would have to get creative fast! Almost a year after the arrival of her second son, her blog was born. Raised backing on to a lush greenbelt in Maple Ridge, with a mother who specialized in Early Childhood Education, Alana almost innately finds adventure and an opportunity to discover in whatever she and her toddlers encounter. Once at Simon Fraser University, she gravitated mainly towards developmental psychology and education. Her blog reflects psychological research on child-rearing and is filled with different activities for young kids as well as articles and stories about all the facets of raising two toddlers she has learnt along the way.
