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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

Beyond Self-Promotion: Some Whys and Hows of Guest Blogging

Last week, I bought a book. It is the book adaptation of one of my favorite blogs, Lame Adventures. Yours truly – Madame Tightwad – couldn’t buy this book fast enough and would have forked over a bit more of my money had V asked me to, but she’s a good person and has priced […]

Humor me for a sec.

I just have one little question for you. It’s this: That was easy, no? I have never done a poll on the blog before. I evidently thought about doing one, though, because when I went to make the one above I found this one in my poll queue. It was from before C (AKA Bebe) […]

George Clinton is a Target shopper, and other untruths I’ll inevitably tell you

There are bloggers among us who are mercenaries. I am not one of them. I write for free and pretty much all you have to do is look at me nicely and I’ll beg you to let me write for you. I have two guest posts this week. One is over at Psychobabble where I regale […]

I should probably write a blog.

I have a few extra minutes. I’ll write a blog post. *Logs into WordPress.* I should check out Freshly Pressed. It’s been a few days. Anything good? HEY! My blogging friend has been FP’d! I should read what they wrote. *Reads post. Feels dumb because overlooked it when first saw it in reader several days […]

Happiness is a small rabibit in your heart.

If someone tells you that that they lived in Asia but didn’t have a few laughs over the proliferation of Engrish there, they are way too serious, and likely also lying. I loved being surrounded by Konglish when I lived in Korea. English deserves to be taken down a few pegs. Once I found this […]

Festivus: The Big Reveal

So it’s Friday. We made it. If you’re reading this right now, the world didn’t end, and for that, we should all celebrate. Of course, there are still several hours left in the day, so I’m not making any promises. But, look on the bright side: either way you have an excuse to get drunk. […]
