Is Lowering the Rim the Answer to Women’s Basketball’s Attendance Problems?

I try not to do this too much but I wrote this post for BlogHer yesterday, cross posted it on Draft Day Suit and now I am cross posting it here. If you are looking for something lighter, check out my Top 6 Embarrassing Sports Music Videos on My Life Scoop. It is no secret […]

The Class of 2022 (BlogHer Hangover Part 2)

There are actually two kinds of BlogHer hangovers. The kind of hangover I wrote about two weeks ago and the kind where you run out of words. Usually when I come home from BlogHer I find that I have mysteriously run out of things to say. It is as if I have told most of […]

Labor Pains

Last night I woke up at 3:33 am with what felt like labor pains. My stomach was cramping so badly that I was convinced that Vicky was having her baby. I reasoned that she and I had bonded so deeply when we roomed together at BlogHer that I could feel her labor pains. I don’t […]

The BlogHer Hangover

Ninety minutes. That is how long it took me to start crying after I got back into town. I wasn’t even actually home yet. I don’t know why I was surprised. This happens every year. I go to BlogHer and I leave feeling amazing. I see people I only get to talk to face to […]

As BlogHer Approaches

This isn’t another “what you need for BlogHer post” or “what you should wear to BlogHer piece” this is far less tangible and really only tangentially related to the conference. This happens every year. This is my fifth BlogHer and every July the dreams begin. A week or two ago I had a dream that […]

Shopping for Sparklecorn

I’ve been shopping for the MamaPop Sparklecorn party at BlogHer this year. Now I just have one question. What goes with these shoes? (thanks to Flutter for leading me to the website where I bought these) ps – These shoes are 100% vegan. Weird, huh. pps – I hope I can walk in them. ppps […]

So About This New Job…

In my life long quest to make everything I like to do all part of the same thing, look what I made for my friend Kim for BlogHer. Cool, huh? If you find her at BlogHer she will probably grace you with one – assuming you use your manners. It was my very first order […]

I Can Stress Out About Nearly Anything

Now that I sell swag for a living I am stressing out about having the coolest stuff to give away this year at BlogHer. Yes, I realize that is completely ridiculous and normal people have real problems. Of course I still have about 200 Draft Day Suit key chain bottle openers with the URL spelled […]

10 Funny Posts By Women Bloggers in Honor of National Humor Month

I wrote this post for BlogHer to honor National Humor Month. I cross posted it here so you can all read these wonderful posts because every single one of them made me laugh. Did you know that April was National Humor Month? Neither did I until a two weeks ago, but it is true. National […]

Love Sports?

Please help up get sports / women’s sports/ sportswriting represented on a panel at BlogHer this year. All you have to is vote I would attend this session. You don’t have to be attending BlogHer, you don’t have to be a woman, heck, I don’t even really care if you like sports but I do […]

And the World Continues to Get Smaller

My neighbor was picking up her daughter who was over here playing with Claudia when she told me that she was watching a power point presentation at work and there was a picture of me in it. Strange? Yes, until the guy giving the presentation told her it was a picture from the BlogHer conference […]

On Mean Girls and Soccer and Violence

I wrote this piece about Elizabeth Lambert yesterday for BlogHer. I’ve had some negative feedback (which I anticipated) but I am wondering what you guys think. I do see soccer as a violent sport. Am I wrong? As soon as I saw the Elizabeth Lambert video I knew that I would be writing about her […]
