BlogHer

Social media is keeping me unproductive, sort of.

It's here, it's here! Time to turn those calendars (HARD!) and kick-off a fresh, new month with a blogging challenge, yes?!? Then again, maybe you should NOT be listening to me. You see, I sort of triple-dog dared my friend Patti at Easton Place Designs to join me in April...then she went and ACTUALLY blogged...every...damn...day...in April...and I sort of fizzled out...around the 8th or 9th, I think...because, I'm more of a DON'T DO WHAT I DID sort of bloggity-mentor, like that...YO!!! Sooooo, if you're like me (figuratively speaking, because not many people can handle THAT much dork) and are frequented... Read more →

#BlogHer14: A puffy-eyed view of the real people behind the power strips and surge protectors.

It was exactly one week ago today, after boarding the first of two flights it would take for me to get to the 10th Anniversary BlogHer Conference in San Jose (because California is about as far away as you can get, from Jersey!), I thought I was going to vomit on my flip flops. I blamed lack of sleep...a nervous stomach...finishing work well after my husband had fallen asleep...on the couch...for the last month...or two...with the dog...he also has a REAL nervous stomach...the dog, too. This morning, after another unsuccessful night of readjusting to post-conference life, I read my first... Read more →

I Left My (insert body part, here)
In San Diego

Toasting a safe arrival into San Diego with my dear friend, Headless Mom! I had the extreme privilege of attending BlogHer 2011 (thank you, Kmart!) and honestly, even after pulling all-nighters in a New York City hospital, saving BlogHers with Busy Mom, I don't remember being THIS tired, last year. Then again, biking around in Coronado with Melisa, Sue and Michelle can be very, very EXHAUSTING oh and absolutely HILARIOUS (trust me, I was there!) but, I'll let Melisa blog about it, once she stops laughing, I mean! UPDATED TO ADD: Which, she did, right here. Left to right: Me... Read more →

Don't Have a Zombie Name for BlogHer?
Go Ahead and Get One (I'll Wait!)

One of the things I'm looking forward to the most about attending the BlogHer Conference, next week (besides, enjoying the company of online friends and meeting up with co-writers, some for the very first time, not to mention, the whole, yah, San Diego is GORGEOUS thing, of course!) is attending the Old School Blogging session. Not only are 2 of my most favorite people in the whole wide web, Jenn and BusyMom, speaking (Melisa and I have reserved the front row, just so you know) seeing as I will also be celebrating my 8th Blogiversary, in September, I feel as...

Haven't Slept in Days, I Blame Harry Potter

I was emailing, back and forth, with a friend, early today, when I noticed something funny. Not like, in, ha ha, funny (I need at least 2 cups of coffee for that to happen) but, more like, hey, wait a minute, that sentence didn't read like that...in my head...anyway. Which is when I realized something. Not ONLY do I talk in my sleep (you lucky BlogHer roomies, you!) but, I think real fast, when I write, too. However, I'm not sure if it's because my mind is used to racing...ALL THE TIME... or, if my fingers just can't keep up... Read more →
