Border Blogging: How 30Seconds Helps Mom & Daughter Keep in Touch Across the Miles by Marge Jesberger
30Seconds brings people from all over the world together and strengthens relationships – even mother and daughter.
I have never attempted a blog before. When my daughter told me about the 30Seconds tribe, I thought, "What the heck, I'll give it a try." I really liked the fact that posts are short, and being a 30Seconds contributor lets me express my thoughts and feelings. When I see one of my daughter's tips published, I know I've passed down my love of writing. We have learned a lot from 30Seconds tips and have watched the tribe grow.
“Introducing my mother to the 30Seconds tribe has been a great way to keep in touch across the miles," says my daughter, Tiffany Zook. "When my husband’s job transferred us from New York to Texas, we needed to find creative ways to bridge the miles. Now, whether on the northern border or southern border, seeing each other’s tips pop up is a true blessing. My mother has been a freelance writer since my early childhood. Now, mom writes about collecting, antiques, fun activities or even crafts we did as a child. During a recent visit to New England, I made my folks some of Donna Lynn John’s famous chicken and dumpling soup. (It was so delish, we even shared it with the neighbors.) We may be miles apart, but our tips keep us close at heart.”
