GREENFIELD, CA (PRWEB) July 11, 2005
Syndicated columnist, Lisa Barker, is grabbing the attention of moms (and dads) everywhere with the award-winning fun and upbeat parenting humor column "Jelly Mom." Sure, it's not difficult to find a mom writing from home about the challenges of parenthood these days, but who really stands out?
One of the key differences with "Jelly Mom" is Barker's voice and writing style which slips easily into dialogue or an imaginatiive spin on reality. Of course the audience knows she's exaggerating, but Barker does it so well that we're willing to go along for the ride and we are never disappointed. "Jelly Mom" will make you giggle one day and laugh out loud the next.
Publishers, editors and readers are very pleased with "Jelly Mom" claiming that the column is a popular feature on websites and in newsletters and e-zines. "Jelly Mom" is currently a weekly feature in the Eureka Reporter, a northern California newspaper, as well as on several parenting websites including internationally syndicated columnist Jodie Lynn's website ParentToParent.com.
"After a year of reading my column, Martin-Ola Press/Parent to Parent, CEO, Jodie Lynn, offered me two outstanding achievements. One was to syndicate Jelly Mom and the other was to be recognized with the Parent to Parent Adding Wisdom Award...that's no small potatoes since Disney has just honored the award by linking back to it (first time ever that they have acknowledged any award program with a link). I'm thrilled to be a recipient and to be the very first column to reach syndication status with Parent to Parent," says Barker.
Lynn has this to say about "Jelly Mom": "I am very impressed with Lisa Barker's columns. She makes me laugh 'out loud' and comes as close to Erma Bombeck as I've ever seen. After meeting Erma's father last year at the workshop where I spoke, I know Lisa could easily make parents laugh just as much -- if not more!"
