A Party for the People and You’re ALL Invited!

I can’t believe it’s been six years. Six years from what, you ask? Six years since we threw the first party that would later become what’s now known as The People’s Party! It started in Chicago as an open party at the bar at the top of the hotel where all the BlogHer 07 Conference attendees were staying. Everyone got […]

Comment Spam That Makes Me Love Comment Spam

Every now and then, you get some comment spam from someone who seems like they really know you… “Hey super fun internet person, be my valentine? Just kidding, but you’ve got a spectacular writing style. If you weren’t a figment of my imagination, I’d write you poems and such. I mean only someone who knows my heart and soul could […]

Dear Facebook, We Need to Talk

Hi Facebook. Can we talk? Because I need to tell you something. I don’t know how to say this so I’m just going to say it. I’ve been seeing someone else.

Yet Another Mom 2.0 Post (Brimming with insight, hyperbole, superlatives, link love and win!)

It’s that time again; the time known as after-the-blogging-conference; the time in which I spend what few quiet moments I have mentally composing a post that will effectively convey my experiences at said conference (all while trying, rather  unsuccessfully, to hit the ground running and get back into parenting mode). For the last few conferences I’ve attended, however, I haven’t […]

Anatomy of a Mom Blogging Career

I’m super late getting this post up for the Ultimate Blog Party ’11. It’s something I’d been meaning to do but procrastinated on because I wasn’t sure what to put in this post. Why would someone who has been blogging for almost six years have trouble with this task, you might ask—as an experienced blogger, I should have, always at […]

30 Days of Truth – Something I Love About Myself

Okay…this is really hard. Much harder, in fact, than picking something you hate about yourself. Do I pick something superficial like, say, my hair? Because I do like my hair a lot. Or do I pick something practical like my independence? Because I do like the fact that I’m very independent and self-sufficient and clever. You could take away everything […]

30 Days of Truth – Something I Hate About Myself
seek truth-1

I know some people that couldn’t come up with ONE thing they hate about themselves. I, on the other hand, have a list as long as my arm. Oh, how I wish I could be one of those people. And I think that statement pretty much sums it all up. I hate that I’ve spent my whole life wishing I […]

My BlogHer Photos!
Me, Anissa and Katie

I can’t believe these are the only pictures I took at BlogHer 10 but alas, it appears to be true. Excuse any grammatical atrocities in the captions—I really struggled over the whole me vs. I thing since they are captions, not sentences. Blerrrgghhh. Feel free to (gently) correct me. Okay, since I can’t put links in the captions, which makes […]

Have I Told You Lately That I Love You?

This is just a little love note to my readers and even more so, to my commenters. I don’t give anyone much of a reason to come back here on a regular or even semi-regular basis. I know that. But you guys are always here for me, regardless. You lift me up when I’m down, you shoo away my overwhelming […]

Identity Crisis

I’ve had many identity crises in my life. The worst was when I became a mom. I just didn’t know who I was anymore and it took a good long time to settle into this mom role. Eventually I sorted it all out. I know who I am. I don’t need my name sewed into my underwear. Nope. But I […]

If You’re Going to BlogHer, You Should Read This

Okay, you’ve arrived at TEASER #2 and you should go on to TEASER #3 If you arrived here randomly and have no idea what’s going on, start at the beginning and hopefully it will make more sense. And if it still makes no sense..well, that’s normal around here. Come back tomorrow or the next day and I’ll try to explain […]
