We’ve got a variety of ways for you to keep up with ALL the happenings here on LakelandMom.com. Wondering how to be sure you see all of our latest posts? Need a quick way to get to our website when you’re looking for things to do with kids in Lakeland? No matter how you like to get your information on kids activities and upcoming family events, we’ve got you covered.
Subscribe to Lakeland Mom’s Weekly Newsletter
Once a week we send out an email newsletter that includes a link to HELLO Weekend! (our weekly list of kids activities and family-friendly events happening Thursday-Sunday), featured blog posts, and links to new content on the website. We know you are busy parents and promise to keep them short, sweet, useful, and only once a week. Since we can’t control what you see on Facebook, our Newsletter is the BEST way to keep up with Lakeland Mom!
“LIKE” Lakeland Mom on Facebook
Facebook is a great place to interact with us – we post links to ALL of our new content on FB, along with lots of other links, events, and local happenings, and occasionally share a little humor!
Do you follow us on Facebook but wonder why you don’t see more of our posts? Here are a few tips for our page, as well as any other pages you want to see more from:
- Be sure you’ve actually “Liked” our page. We’ve noticed many people are liking our posts but haven’t actually “Liked” our page – visit https://www.facebook.com/lakelandmom1/ and be sure you’ve actually hit that “Like” button.
- Like, Share & Comment! The more you interact with our posts, the more of them you will see, AND you’ll also help make them show up in your friends’ feeds as well. Which is a nice thing to do for them.
- Set us to “See First” in your news feed. From a desktop, go to www.facebook.com/lakelandmom1, hover over “Liked” at the top and under “IN YOUR NEWS FEED” select See First. We don’t think we are more worthy of the top of your feed than all of your other Facebook friends, but Facebook seems to like your friends better than us, so you may or may not see our “business/organization page” posts.**
- Check out our “Sign Up” button at the top of our page where you can easily sign up for our weekly newsletter.
(**We won’t get into the details, but Facebook has some crazy algorithms that decide what you do and don’t see from business/organization pages. Many say that is to force businesses to spend $$ to reach Facebook users, but since we post SO MUCH there is no way we can pay every time we want you to see our info. So these are the next best options!)
Add our LAKELAND MOM icon to your Home Screen
We designed LakelandMom.com to be mobile friendly because we know you keep up with information on-the-go. And we designed our logo to be fun, colorful, and something you hopefully enjoy looking at, maybe even worthy of your phone’s homescreen? To remind you to check for new info, OR to keep our link handy when you want to see where Kids Eat Free, find the name of that new kids activity, or check for Summer Fun in Lakeland, follow the steps below to get the Lakeland Mom logo added to your phone just like an App:
iPhone or iPad: In the Safari browser, go to www.lakelandmom.com, then tap the square button in the bottom middle (Share button). Scroll through the bottom row of options and select “Add to Home Screen.” Shorten the name if you’d like, hit Add, and you’ll have a colorful new icon on your phone that sends you straight to our homepage.
Android: In the Chrome browser, go to go to www.lakelandmom.com. Tap the menu button (three dots, top right) and tap Add to Home screen. You’ll be able to enter a name for the shortcut and then Chrome will add it to your home screen.
