A Giveaway from The Financial Nanny & Nanny Transititions

>> Friday, May 15, 2009

Since returning from the INA Conference in Dallas 3 weeks ago, my good friend Glenda and I have been brainstorming about how to get the message out to nannies that we can't simply sit around lamenting about the lack of respect our profession gets. We have to be actively working to improve the image of the nanny profession and one of the most important ways to do that is to be actively involved in a professional nanny organization.

We both knew and loved the late Harriette Grant. Harriette was a Co Founder of the first and longest running support group in the United States. Association of DC Area Nannies (ADCAN). She was a founding member of INA, a board member of INA and the first INA Nanny of the Year in 1990 We will be posting her story on her June 3rd Birthday and in honor of her upcoming birthday Glenda and I decided we would work in conjunction to give away an INA Membership on our blogs.

I have two blogs. The first blog is http://www.nannyadventures.com/. This is a blog about my adventures as a nanny, helpful tools for parents and nannies as well as other items of interest. I was also inspired by Dr. Lynne Kenney at the INA Conference to brand herself. I am launching her new blog, The Financial Nanny that is focused on helping nannies (and others) save money and invest wisely with the start of this contest.

Glenda's first blog is about nannies in transition from leaving their nanny positions to other changes. It is called Nanny Transitions. Her second blog is highlighting her creative side as The Creative Nanny.

Starting on Friday, May 15 and running through Monday June 1, we will offer you the opportunity to win a one year INA Nanny membership (Valued at $95) If you are already an INA member we will pay your membership for the following year.

You can gain entries by doing any or all of the following.

1. Sign up to follow either blog. (Each blog counts for 1 entry so if you sign up for all 4 you will get 4 entries). Please leave a comment at each blog stating that you signed up to follow or already do.

2. Talk about this give away and post a link to our blogs on your blog, talk about it to a yahoogroup, or post about it on a message board like NannyNetwork , Nanny Island
Twitter it, or put it on Facebook.

Send us a copy or a link and each one will count as an entry.
Send it to nannytransitions@aol.com (put INA Giveaway in subject) or

3. In addition to that you will get double entries for posting on any of our blogs
a. Why you want to be a member of a professional organization, or
b. What it means to you to be a member of a professional nanny group

The winner will be chosen from random.org and announced on all four blogs on Tuesday June 2, 2009. Good luck!

Thanks for this opportunity!

It is so helpful being part of various types of nanny groups: online blogs and yahoogroups and such, local in-person groups, and larger professional organizations. The ability to share experience and advice with the only other people who really understand what we do for a living is vital. Increasing our skills and understanding of the job makes it a profession rather than a babysitting job. And banding together with others to improve the industry as a whole is paying it forward.

I am very excited for the contest! Good luck to all the nannies trying to win! I say we join whether we win or not! I say we keep posting on the yahoo groups, facebook, etc even after this contest. We as nannies can make a difference.
