Pledge Week: A Special Message to Readers

Here’s a New Year’s resolution for you to make in 2011.

Write letters to your kids.

That’s what this blog is all about. is drawn from journals I wrote for our kids, Michael and Caroline, over the course of two years. Those journals started as nothing more than a New Year’s resolution in 2007.

Now, as January 1 nears, I’m calling on all you parents (and grandparents) out there to do the same. Resolve to write letters to your own kids – or journals, as the case may be.
That’s why my this blog’s home page invites you to “Take The Pledge.” Just click the link and scroll down to the pledge icon. Click again to close the ad there and click to answer the question, “Will you pledge to write letters to your kids?”

Voila! Three clicks and you’ll see your voice counted.

From today through Friday, will be holding Pledge Week. I’ll be telling you why I think you should take this pledge to write letters to your kids – what it might mean to you and your children. I’ll also share a preview of the stories and surprises you’ll discover on my blog in 2011.

So stay tuned. And please let me know what you think.

P.S. – I invite all of you to contribute a guest blog, “Why I Took The Pledge” – a short essay about what you plan to tell your kids, along with your bio and a family photo. To volunteer, just e-mail me at

P.S.S. – Part 2 will appear tomorrow.
