Friday Friends Club Welcomes Amy Lupold Bair-The Resourceful Mommy

By admin | September 12, 2008


It's Friday Friend Day once again and today I want to go back in time a bit to my Girl Scout Days. I was only a Girl Scout for a short time. What I remember is how much fun I had at Camp making new friends.My three older daughters all were Girl Scouts from Daisies right through Juniors.  I was a Troop Leader for each of the girls at one point or another and held the title of Service Unit Manager for all troops in our area.  It was an awesome experience for all of us!

So, what does this have to do with our very special Friday Friend?  Actually, a lot.  Our Friday Friday for this week is Amy Lupold Bair from The Resourceful Mommy. I first became acquainted with Amy through Twitter. Being a people watcher I happened to see a trend in Amy’s tweeting habits. The trend, as you saw in my video, was a clear indication that Amy is Gold

Have you ever heard that old Girl Scout Song “Silver and Gold?”

Make new friends,
but keep the old.
One is silver,
the other is gold.

A Gold Friend, like the metal, is precious and holds extreme value. 

Now , your probably wonder how do I know something like this about Amy if I only know her virtually. What people tweet about and the content of their writing are very sure indicators of the type of person someone is.  From what I have researched, Amy’s gold.

Here are some of the awesome things she has been doing to prove my point.

A former English teacher, Amy is a stay-at-home mom to two children works part time as a freelance writer and maintains a great Blog.

Take a peek at Amy’s Home Page and Blog:

Resourceful Mommy

You can also find Amy’s work at:

Blissfully Domestic as a contributor to the Family Bliss Channel
TypeAMom has Amy ranked as an Official Writer(and soon to be Editor!)
Wishpot considers Amy’s opinion in high regard as a Wishpot Expert

I would like to tell you what really struck me about Amy.  Obviously her kind and giving attitude shows through at first glance but, as you go to her blog and read the content another side becomes immediently evident.

Amy was an English teacher.  When you read her posts you will see that she is also an amazing author and journalist.  Currently, Amy’s doing a series that celebrates women.The series is called Women and Choice-The Myth of Our Mothers-“Having It All”.  The in depth posts will really leave you waiting to see what’s coming next!  Your just going to have to stop by Resourceful Mommy for yourself, subscribe to the feed to see exactly what I am talking about.

When I open my Twitter every morning, one thing that I can count on is getting a smile that you can literally see right though every tweet Amy makes.  While many people are using Social Media just as a marketing venue, you can  definitely see and feel the difference with Amy.  She is a perfect example of how integrity in marketing and developing and the KLT Factor (know,like,trust) will really generate success for whatever your endeavors may be.

Amy’s next endeavor is quite huge!  She is writing a book about social media’s impact on women’s quest to “have it all.” I couldn’t think of a better person to take on a project like this one! 

As the words in the Silver and Gold Song go, Amy is a absolutely a Gold Friday Friend

Like Juliet Low, the founder of the World Association of Girl Scouts and Girl Guides, who used a primitive form of social marketing to connect girls of all ages, nationalities and walks of life throughout the world, Amy is quickly becoming a master of our generations Social Media Marketing trend to connect women on the web.

Amy, thanks for the smile every day and for being our Friday Friend! 

You are Gold!

    This is such a sweet concept, I loved it! I’m so fortunate to have met so many amazing women online, especially on Twitter and especially in the last few weeks even. Bravo to you for promoting them and bringing all this to the forefront!

    Hi Tina,
    I have to tell you, it takes someone pretty special to make such a sincere effort to introducing the world to your friday friends. Your piece on Amy, which I discovered from Amy’s tweet and blog post, was so well done, thorough and sincere. I had a recent blog post on how personally, I felt that blogging is so important as social and historical documentation of an era. It’s also creates an incredible sense of community. I am finding as I dig deeper into Twitter that micro-blogging has it’s own community building power like a special ingredient for a perfect recipe. It’s people like you and Amy and so many others that I’ve met in the short time that I’ve been blogging and Twittering, who realize that there are such positive, effective ways of using blogging, podcasting, micro-blogging and the like to spread some seriously good vibes and karma. I just want to applaud you on your Friday Friends series. You not only made Amy’s day, but your generosity and positivity organically reflected your light right back on yourself.

    Kudos to you!
    From another over 40 new ‘old’ mom,
    Barbara Jones

    Adrianne and Barbara-

    Thanks for your comments! My point with this series is to just simple appreciate some of the amazing people out there. As Moms, we are all too often “unsung heroes”. I want people to know that the reflection they are creating through their tweets and blogs and whatever else they are doing through Social Media is noticed and appreciated!

    Thanks so much for taking the time to comment!
