  • Stop The Online Hate. Just Stop It!
    Tweet It is 5:30am and I should be sleeping, especially since we have been dealing with the a bug from hell in this home that captured my entire family with fevers. Mama is exhausted with whiny kids (more than usual when they are sick) when she herself feels sick but I needed to write this post. I should have written this post 3 years ago, and truthfully at times I did...

  • You Are What You (Re)Tweet!
    Tweet Why you (re)tweet? Sometimes you do it because your buddy tweeted it. Sometimes it is just to make the other tweeter happy. Sometimes it is to keep your tweet-stream (seem) populated. Sometimes you are bored and have nothing to say of your own. Sometimes you hope they will return the favor someday. Sometimes you just want to show you are supportive. Sometimes...

  • My #Blogher11 Round-Up And Why No-One Should Feel Alone At BlogHer!
    Tweet I thought about skipping writing a BlogHer post this year. Yup, I decided I could not pull my own act together myself so I should save others from taking advice from someone like me. I mean fashion wise I suck and organization wise is… well let’s just not go there. I have written several posts before and I am recycling  a few here (all in my aim...

  • If Content Is King, Why Should I Remain A Pauper?
    Tweet Yeah, this is another of those posts I don’t want to write. I debated writing it because I don’t want my blog sounding like a whining fest but I needed to put this out there. Many blogger friends talk. Whether it is on twitter (especially DMs), Skype, on phone (yes, several of us still resort to this age old technology method), on Facebook, in email...

  • So Now It Is Get 200 Likes To Review A Product?
    Tweet See update below… I am really upset while writing this post. Mostly because I have a pile of other stuff more important to do and this was not scheduled but it had to be done. I also hate posts coming out negative – I like thinking that I should give someone the benefit of the doubt. I am naive. I also know that at times I may have to stand up and take...

  • I Will Post About Your Contest If You Post About Mine!
    Tweet I receive several pitches, some good, some bad and some plain ugly. I wanted to post my reply to one of my pet-peeves. ————————————————————————————————– Dear Mommy Blogger, We...

  • Reasons Why Those Voting Contests (Still) Suck! And My Pledge To Not Support Them!
    Tweet When I originally wrote the 7 Ways To Annoy Your Friends in Social Media I skimmed over one of the points and it became obvious in the comments it was the most popular item. Most agreed but some still decided to try to justify its salient points. So I decided my explanation was too brief and maybe needed some elaboration. They give (others) good traffic! Did you...

  • 7 Ways To Annoy Your Friends In Social Media!
    Tweet Ok, I get it.The world is a smaller place thanks to social media, and I have more friends now than I ever did. This also means that because my friends (and family) read my blog it leaves little space for me to really blog about what’s on my mind without offending someone. On that note my newer family of friends has somehow managed to get on my nerves, with...

  • Conferences And The Other Dilemmas They Bring!
    Tweet I love planning for conferences. I love being alone on a flight. I love being able to shut the bathroom door in a hotel room (and if I am sharing a room I figure my room mate appreciates that too). I love making myself pretty (well as pretty as I know how to make myself look). I love eating adult food and sipping wine. I love hugging my bloggy buddies IRL (in real...

  • ROR – Return On Relationships!
    Tweet Good things take time. Like wine. People look for shortcuts all the time, because they “claim” they have no time – or as I would put it, won’t make the time. You see people do crazy things like buy followers on twitter, since actually talking to people and making people want to follow them might take too much darn effort. You see people...

  • “Does a company cover the expenses to a media event?” should not be your 1st question you ask.
    Tweet I know the question about whether expenses should, could and would be covered for media events have been covered extensively before, I am not going to discuss that. There is an even more important question to be asked. No, I am not saying that financials are not important; heaven knows I know how hard it is not to keep your eyes focused on the bank balance. What...

  • My BlogHer Babbling!
    Tweet So I made it to BlogHer and I made it back. If you read my Girlfriend’s Guide To BlogHer you would be wondering if I really ate my own dog food. And to not keep you in suspense, yes I did. BlogHer was a blur but I expected it to be. What I wore T-shirt with my logo (if I am forking out money to be there I better promote myself ) and my twitter id (which...

  • A Girlfriend’s Guide To BlogHer!
    Tweet So I have been seeing posts and talks about BlogHer and I really did not want to post this. I mean even though I have been to BlogHer before these posts are starting to make me feel like I should be more involved. Seriously stalking the #BlogHer10 hashtag crazily means you should #getalife. So why in the world am I writing this post? Well I feel I have to get it...

  • Friday 5: 5 Reasons Big Bloggers Need To Be Nice To Small Bloggers!
    Tweet I know those adjectives “big” and “small” suck but go with my poetic heading, which is easier on the ears than it’s polictically correct cousin. For the rest of this post though my point is those bloggers who are a little more established, not necessarily writing for longer but more in the limelight – or maybe blog-light, compared...

  • Why I Won’t Let Someone Make Me Feel Like I Don’t Belong!
    Tweet I was at an event in NYC earlier in the year when a blogger, who identified enough with me (I am glad she did) and confided “Don’t you hate these things where you feel left out!”. I answered no. Many of the famous bloggers would, I am sure, want only the top people in their presence. When you are a lil old blogger trying to find your footing...

  • My Dear Blogger Friends: Be Nice!
    Tweet I have been keeping my nose to the grindstone and pumping out posts trying hard to keep my content fresh barely lifting my head up to breathe. When I do manage to get out to tweet I see the parties I am missing yet I know I have commitments to post so I do. Maybe I feel like I have extended myself too much at times which is amazing because if I just closed “shop”...

  • Blogging Experts? Just Blog And Let Blog!
    Tweet This is one blog post I really did not want to write since there are a gazillion blog posts about blogging instead of what we normally blog about since BlogHer (Hangover), and frankly I am sick of it! I know this post won’t make me popular, oh wait I am not that popular anyway! People are sprouting all over to advise, mock and act holier than thou as to...
