On another forum I visit, someone kindly aggregated many posts that people use for reference and put them in one place as links. I'm far from knowing all the helpful information that's on this forum - but I thought I would make a start: threads are in no particular order, but if people want to chime in, that's also an easy fix. This is just a start: If you have links you'd like added to these particular categories, PM me or post, and I'll edit this post if I can.

Please feel free to add a post with your own categories/links. I think new parents who have questions might really appreciate a "quick view" way to get to the information they need.

Right now, I'm just doing keyword searches on topics I was looking for help on or that helped me: someday, I would love to find a way for us parents to get together and rank order the information (if we could do it without hurting anyone's feelings.)

Wow, excellent idea! I'm always telling people they can search for prior threads but I, myself, am horrible at finding them!

Any idea where all the good information on writing issues is?

We're already bordering on having too many stickies, but this is something I think we should approach with the goal of making a sticky.

Want to clean up and organize all our reading referrals, too ;). Lol, sorry, that has been on my to do list longer than I'm willing to admit ...

Heartfelt thanks, everybody - it's all your work, you know.

Obviously, the headers I made pertained to things I came here looking for. If you have particular interests, do a keyword search and post the name of the thread and the link here. I will do what I can to edit the top post as I have time. I'm absolutely certain that I've left out posts that were really, really useful - so any outside oversight would be appreciated.
