Yeah, I'm going

Where do you blog?  You're lookin at it! 

What do you blog about?  You know, I've had a hard time with nailing myself down, and that's part of the reason that content is on the low around here. I have this mental block against putting myself in a box. For instance, I don't want to be a "mommy blog". That doesn't mean I don't love my mommy blog ladies and read all their blogs, it just means maybe I'm holding out, trying to think up the next big genre. 

Is this your first time going to Blogher?  You betcha! It was kind of a split decision, much like many of my decisions in life. I like to fly by the seat of my pants. I'm kinda wishing I went to last year's conference in New York, which would have cost me a lot less. That's another running theme for me: last minute decisions, costing me a ton of dough.

What's your favorite post you've written in the last year?  Although it was based on one of the worst things that ever happened to me, it would have to be the one about my molar pregnancy. For a lot of reasons. First, it was good to be able to get it out there. I also wrote it at a time when I was still reeling from it, but I had accepted it enough to be able to give it a little bit of my usual twisted sarcasm, which hopefully lightened it up for anyone who reads it. And that's important, because the real reason I wrote it was because I wanted to put something out there for other people who might be dealing with it. It's a rare condition, and when it was happening to me, there wasn't a lot out there. It took me a few weeks to find others who had been through the same thing. I decided to share my story in the hopes that others would find it in a shitty time, and maybe crack a tiny smile and feel a little less alone.

What are you most looking forward to at Blogher13?  I'm hoping to pick up some magical blogging powers. But what I'm really looking forward to is bothering Jayne while she's trying to pee.

Where else {Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, Etc.} can we find you?  You can just find me here for now. I haven't figured out the merits of making my blog its own Facebook page, and I only have three tweets to date. See Blogher? I need your special powers!


  1. You can't sit on my lap while I pee. :-)

  2. Seriously, meeting you is one of the biggest thing I'm looking forward to! We can bother Jayne together!


let's get awkward!
