Everything I Ever Needed to Know About Life I Learned From Dr. Seuss

I pride myself in providing my kid with quality reading material. Whether or not she actually wants to consume it is an arbitrary issue. To be honest, C would much rather play cowboys at bedtime these days than she would read a book. I think she’s onto us; she knows that stories make her drowsy and […]

Come See Me at Press Publish!

I can think of only a few things that I love more than hanging out with bloggers. They include: 1. Cheetos. Even the allure of meeting fellow oversharers pales in comparison to the radioactive goodness of dried cheese dust. 2. Target during the SuperBowl. While the rest of the world was watching football yesterday, I was […]

Let’s all hold hands and lose our minds together.

So, every November, writers and bloggers the world over are peer pressured invited to take part in literary self-flagellation of epic proportions. Today kicks off National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and National Blog Post Month (NaBloPoMo). NaNoWriMo – commonly  referenced as National Sh*%$y First Draft Month – puts writers up to the challenge of

Humility At Work

On my recent flight from San Jose for BlogHer, I sat across the aisle from a guy I recognized from the convention as a WordPress programmer. I argued with myself over whether I should say hi, it being extremely early and me having the proclivity to insert my foot in my mouth whenever I randomly approach […]

Remember the Time…we had important news AND a writing prompt?

Good morning, Remember the Timers! (Isn’t that so much better than Nostalgiaphiles?) I know you guys absolutely luuuuuurve tuning in on Monday for these posts where I dictate what you are going to write about this week, but all good elective mandates must come to an end. This is the last Monday RTT post you […]

Remember the Time…we got really scared?

You had to have seen this one coming. It’s October, and the stores that know what’s up are stocked with candy and costumes that make even the most innocent objects sultry (sexy paperclip, anyone?). Some stores are already getting ready for Christmas, but this is not the blog that you need to be reading if […]

Odds and Ends

This is going to be one of those catch-all posts for all the little things that don’t really warrant full posts for themselves but deserve more than just a tweet. NOT THAT THERE’S ANYTHING WRONG WITH THE TWEETER! In fact, look what happened to me there this week: OMG OMG SWOON SWOON SWOON! Ming Tsai […]

Good Things Come in Threes

If you could see me right now, I’d be facepalming all over the place. I almost forgot to tell you about volume three of the parenting round table I contributed to for The Daily Post, WordPress’ in-house blog about everything blogging. At least I didn’t forget to change the baby’s diaper? I dunno. I’ll take […]

The Daily Post Parenting Round Table, Part Le Deux

Is “le deux” even a thing? Shouldn’t it be “les deux”? And since this is a blog written in English, shouldn’t I just get my mitts off of languages that I have no business hijacking? This opening paragraph and title is an absolute fail. What’s not a fail is the second part of Mommy and […]

My Two Cents

A month or so ago, I was honored to be asked by the great folks at WordPress to contribute to a round table discussion of the art of mommy and daddy bloggery on their in-house blog, The Daily Post. The first installment of the three-part series Mommy and Daddy Bloggers Shoot the Poop is live today, […]
