Finding My Bliss (right here) (right now)

A lot of my friends are in Nashville tonight. They're laughing and hugging and talking and taking pictures and wearing really cute shoes. The Blissdom Conference is all about "following your bliss, which means dreaming impossible dreams – and then making them possible through creativity, passion and direction." That's a pretty cool mission for a […]

Products to Promote Your Business: DPS Banners

When I was filming the promotional video for my ebook several months ago, I had to do a few takes (okay, a lot of takes...). As a result of those practice sessions, our 3-year-old took to saying, "" out of the blue...which is pretty much the cutest thing ever. In fact, I joked to Tim […]

Products to Promote Your Business: Post-Up Stand & Ghirardelli

A Mom 2.0 Story {why I'm opting out this year}

Once upon a time, some fun + well-connected women planned a cool kicky conference called the Mom 2.0 Summit. They scheduled the 3-day conference for February 2010 and labeled it as a place to "talk shop with social media influencers, industry leaders, and leading brands."

Out with the old, In with the new

The blogosphere is pretty quiet tonight (do you hear it?...that's the sweet sound of silence online as people spend their days sipping cocoa, taking walks, cooking, laughing, lingering, working around the house, and doing family things). I certainly have been offline a lot the past few days. Today, for example, we had a leisurely family […]

Breaking into Product Reviewing

What do you do when you want to buy a product - whether it be a new pair of jeans, a blender, or a baby carrier? I do two things: Check the ratings on Amazon. Search "[product name] blog" on Google. I do that second step because I love to hear the authentic, honest voices […]
