  1. Dear Sir,

    I work at OpenX and we have one of the largest ad exchanges in the world and some of the largest sites use our cloud based enterprise ad server.

    I look forward to hearing from you soon. Thanks for your help.

  3. Hello Rachel,

    I am Ram, a member of mocomi.com family. We, at Mocomi, love kids as much as you do. I have been following your kids blog for quite some time now and I really like the content you publish. I specially liked your last post, Three Little-known Secrets to Great Teaching. It was truly amazing.

    Anyways, the reason I emailed you is that we are very excited about the launch of our free online kids magazine – Mocomag that we have planned to launch on Friday, the 13th, 2013 (I know it sounds spooky and you can check out why here: http://mocomi.com/magazine/). It will be a great resource for kids with a lot of fun and interactive articles, videos, games and comic strips. And did I mention it’ll all be free?

    Friday the 13th is a truly auspicious date for us and how could we let go of a golden opportunity to talk about things that spook us. Kids will learn about vampires, phobias, the Bermuda triangle, spiders and much much more. As kids, we always wondered about who lived under our bed? Now lets go and find out!

    So we’d love to write a guest post on your blog on a kids topic and we just ask for a little mention of our blog somewhere in the post. We already have some articles ready with us right now that you can choose from to publish on your blog:

    How to cultivate smart reading habits in your kids?
    10 Ways Kids can learn online
    10 Cool Things kids can do online.
    How can stories impact the growth of your child?
    Why is humour good for kids?
    5 Reasons why online games are good for kids.

    Please let us know if you agree to post one of the above articles on your blog. Or if you have some other article ideas, please share it with us and we’ll write them for you.

    Any help will be warmly welcomed. Waiting for your positive response.
