Today’s Agenda: The view from my balcony at #BlogHer11 edition

So for a lot of my readers it’s late afternoon, time to start thinking of dinner and winding down, but I’m in San Diego for a blogging conference, so most of my day is still spread out ahead of me. Also spread out ahead of me at the moment is this amazing view, from my […]

Today’s Agenda: not fretting the sweat edition

This morning on ABC the weatherman said about a thousand times that today would be a pleasant day, without much humidity. I’m hoping against hope that he’s right, because feeling like I haven’t showered even right after I step out of the shower is getting old. Today has been a productive day already. When you […]

Yup, it’s a post about my hair (and Jake Gyllenhaal)

I changed my twitter picture yesterday, for the first time ever, and I’ve lost count of how many compliments I’ve gotten about my hair.  Yes, I curled it that day (I was going to a party).  And yes, it took a long time – about an hour start to finish (I have a crapload of […]

The Blogging Angels: Because I just don’t talk enough

I’ve decided that the only way I’m ever going to get thin is if I spread myself that way, so three friends and I have started a new website, The Blogging Angels.  We’re starting with some podcasts, and since the biggest mom blogging convention in the universe just happened a week ago, that’s our first […]

eBay back-to-school deals: big savings & free shipping!

I’m supposed to be getting ready to head to the BlogHer conference tomorrow in the city (that’s what we Brooklyn dwellers tend to call Manhattan, as though we live on a farm), thanks to my awesome sponsors at eBay Classifieds.  But I just saw a string of emails from my kids’ school about school supplies, […]

I’m such a dork!

I always think, when I’m filming something, that I’m being smooth and suave.  And then I watch it back and I’m such a dork! :-)  But I love talking with Maria Bailey from BSM Media – a great PR person and my offline friend as well.  She filmed a bunch of blogger profiles last month […]

Would Twitter make me thinner or fatter?

A weird thing played out on Twitter this morning that started with me tweeting out of a desire to delay working and ended with me eating a s’more for lunch that I didn’t even start out really wanting.  My daughter went into a cupboard to get something and of course left it open.  From where […]

Here’s why I’m not nervous about BlogHer

I mentioned in a video yesterday morning that there’s a lot of angst in the air about BlogHer.  And some of it is manufactured for fun.  I do it too.  “Oh my God, Tim Gunn is going to be there, what am I going to wear?”  I have no problem with the manufactured angst. I […]

We don’t need no stinkin’ blackout

On this morning’s video, I mentioned a PR blackout that I had heard rumors about.  After doing the video it occured to me that perhaps I should have actually looked it up before talking about it, but as happens in those videos I don’t always know what I’m going to talk about so I say […]

Product Giveaway: Help For Toddler Eating

This week I’m giving away two prizes that I think go well together.  I was given both of these items this summer at the BlogHer convention in San Francisco.  The first is called Snacker Tracker.  It’s a nutritional tracking system for kids 2-8 years old.  It’s a dry-erase fridge magnet that guides your child through […]
