Mini photogs, crowdsourcing and GRAND Social No. 110 link party

Mini photogs

Bubby received a child-sized digital camera from Aunt Brianna a while back, and I've enjoyed watching both Bubby and Mac put it to good use in documenting baby Jak's first days.

I like to think at least a small portion of my grandsons' interest in photography was inherited from Gramma.



I need your help and input. I have been assigned an article about the challenges grandparents sometimes face with their sons-in-law. If you've had a difficult time with a son-in-law and would like to share your thoughts and advice — especially in terms of how you overcame the difficulty — I would love to hear from you. I will not be using names in the article, so feel free to tell it like it is. Please email me at to share your story. (Again, I will not include names in the article.) Thank you!


GRAND Social No. 110

Time to share some links, read some links! Thank you for participating in this week's GRAND Social link party!

link party

How it works:

  • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.
  • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to your blog's home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
  • You can add up to three posts, but no duplicates, contests, giveaways, or Etsy sites, please.
  • Adding a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button anywhere on your page using the following code:
<a rel="nofollow" href="/" target="blank"><img src=" " alt="Grandma’" width="125" height="125" /></a>


  • The GRAND Social linky accepts posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.

  • If you're not a blogger, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Those sharing a link would be honored to have you visit, read and, if so moved, leave a comment even if just "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social." Bloggers who link are encouraged to visit and comment on the links of other bloggers, as well.
