Randomness Part 137

As I type this my daughter’s barbies are playing naked hockey. * * * Why does Amazon want me to put MY music from my hard drive into their cloud? That makes me paranoid. Are they behind me right now? * * * It pisses me off when I go to the grocery store and […]

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 […]

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 […]

My Philosophy on Laundry

Note: Do you ever spend time on a writing assignment only to realize that you weren’t assigned the laundry post, you were assigned the post about messy bedrooms? No. Just me, huh? Whatever. Here is a post I wrote for BlogHer about how I am a laundry slacker. My philosophy on doing laundry is entirely […]

Information Overload and BlogHerDC

When Elisa asked me if I would be part of the team that gave a presentation on information overload I was thrilled and also kind of blown away by the irony. I got the e-mail two days later because I have too many e-mail addresses to have time to check them all every day. I […]

Who is In? BlogHer Reach Out Washington D.C.

Tomorrow at 2:45 Cindy Samuels and I will be presenting on/leading a discussion about Blogging Basics and Managing Information Overload: How to find your blogging community. Come out and ask good questions that make me sound intelligent, or at least say hi at the cocktail party.

Bringing Me Back Down to Earth

It is so easy to feel good at BlogHer. You see people who you admire and who admire you back. You get to hang out with internet rock stars. People want to take pictures with you. You get interviewed and put on television. A conference like that can be such a high. But then you […]

Too Jet Lagged to think of a Clever Post Title

This happens to me every year after BlogHer. I’ve got nothing. It isn’t that I’m burnt out… it is just that I already said all of the things that I have to say. I just said them to you guys in person. Plus I can’t seem to readjust to Eastern Standard Time. I suppose I […]

It’s a Small World After All

In case you haven’t been reading my road trip blog or if you are new here I arrived in San Francisco yesterday for the annual BlogHer conference. I am having a wonderful time and all that but I really want to tell you a quick story. One of the many blogs that I write for […]

Not My Usual Day

This morning a gentleman in a 70 foot truck dropped off a Chevy Tahoe Hybrid at my house. (All the neighbors got excited until I told them I didn’t get to keep it.) This afternoon a crew from CBS will be dropping by to film me (and Devra) in the car. Then (I assume) they […]
