Seeking New HDYDI Authors – Now Closed

January 31, 2012 update: We’ve managed to round up a wonderful group of writers and don’t need more at the moment. However, if you’re still interested in writing for HDYDI, get in touch and we’ll see what we can work out.

Things have been a little quiet around here lately, the posts few and far between, the authors even fewer. Life has thrown some other priorities at our Fearless Leader, Jenna, and I have the privilege of taking over coordination of HDYDI.

We’ll be ramping up around here in 2013.

You’re going to see a greater variety of authors here over the next few weeks and months, but we need more still. If you’re a parent, teacher, caregiver, or scholar of multiples with an interest in sharing your experiences and expertise with the readers of How Do You Do It, please leave a comment on this post and make sure that we have an email address so we can get back to you. We’re especially low on writers who are currently expecting, have infant multiples, and those who have higher order multiples.

My expectation would be a post or two a month, and my personal perspective is that it’s perfectly kosher to recycle or adapt a post you may have composed for your personal blog for wider consumption.

I can’t wait to see what this year brings here at How Do You Do It!

  1. Hello! I’d be interested in contributing. We are a two mom family (one British, one American) living in the UK with our three year old twins. We home educate our children. If this sounds like we may be a good fit, feel free to email. I do have a regular blog with good readership, but don’t want to link to it here as it is anonymous! Thanks.

  2. I have identical twin girls, Ava and Sophia, born on June 18th at just 26 weeks gestation. They were 1#12 oz and 1#3oz. I was told throughout my pregnancy that they might not survive at all and definitely won’t go full term. I did all I could to be healthy and went to ultrasounds at least once a week. They were miracles. They came home from the hospital 3 weeks before their due date on the SAME DAY on September 1st. They are right track and get stronger, sweeter, and more fun everyday. I’d love to offer my story of hope and any tips I’ve learned with any mothers out there, I know I’m always in need of advice or a new idea:)

  3. I have fraternal twin girls who will be three in April. I write often about them on my personal blog and some of the joys and challenges they bring. I’m expecting my first singleton in March, a boy.

  4. I am a working mother of 3—-8 year old son and three year old twins. We are more “AP” than most, but mainly we just try to do what works for us and support everyone else in their choices. I am a professor, and somehow, our crazy family has made our home an urban farm (chickens, big garden, and everything). I’d love to share how normal it is to be crazy and disorganized and full of love as a family with multiples.

  5. I am a mother of 1 year of twin boys. Having just made it through the first year, I am anxious to reflect on the highs and lows of the first year as well as the fun that comes with raising toddlers.

  6. I have identical twin girls who are 4.5 years old and a 10 month old son. I tried to start my own blog but was too busy to post a lot, once or twice a month sounds perfect. :) I have lots of stories, lots of tips and a little bit of free time. ;)

  7. I’m mom to Boy/Girl twins who just turned two. I recently returned to full time and started a blog that focuses on work/life balance, being organized and enjoying life with twins! Would be happy to contribute to this.

  8. Hi
    I am a working mother of 20 month old twins and a 3.5 year old. I have flirted with the idea of blogging but never got one up and running. Definitely interested in sharing my crazy life and maybe imparting so helpful tips at the same time. I like to pretend I am on top of things and totally organized but to be honest, I am not, but trying very hard!!

  9. We have a 2 year old and triplet 9 month olds. I could POSSIBLY commit to 2 posts total but things are too crazy here to commit to more than that. We have experienced TTTS and laser ablation surgery, and lots of NICU time if we can help people become aware of these issues.

  10. Hi there! I’m currently 9 weeks pregnant with twins and would love to contribute to the blog! This is my first successful pregnancy, so I might not be a source of utmost wisdom, but would love to share my experience through pregnancy and birth. One thing I do have (for at least the next <31 weeks) is time! And do a lot of writing on my own about our experience through IVF. Thanks!

  11. Hello! I’m Mercedes and I have three and a half month old twins, a boy and girl. We’re from the States (except DH–he is Venezuelan) but moved to Scotland when the twins were just two months old! We are far away from family and learning how to do this parenting thing as we go. We agree with all the AP principles though we don’t necessarily label ourselves as such–but I am passionate about breastfeeding, babywearing and spending as much time as possible with my wee ones! Hope to hear from you soon!

  12. My fraternal twin boys are 4 months old. I’ve been a big fan of HDYDI through my pregnancy and would love to contribute. I’m taking a year off from my teaching job to be a stay at home mom.

  13. My boy/girl twins are 2 months old, and They have a 2.5 year old sister. I am taking the rest of the school year off to be with them, and returning next year is still TBD. I’ve been reading this blog since before I got pregnant with twins (somehow I was destined to have twins?). I think it’s a great place to find inspiration and moral support, and I would love to be a part of it.

  14. Hey Sadia,

    I know I’ve fallen off the blog radar and such but I need to get back on. If you’re interested in maybe having someone (yours truly) write a little something about PPD and living with MI in general with multiples (+ 1) I would consider. Also, Miss C is being evaluated by a neuropsychologist at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia to rule out Asbergers and the like. I’m sure I’ll have LOTS to share in the coming months. I know you’re full-up right now but let me know when / if you need more contributors! *hugs*
