Way back in the early days of 2015, I attended a live reading of several excerpts from the book, Listen To Your Mother. It was here that I met Melisa Wells, the woman responsible for all things social media at BlogHer, and its parent company, SheKnows Media, the sponsors of the event....more

You walk into Happy Hour and there is this girl sitting with your co-worker, you assume it's the wife as you have heard about her but haven't met her yet. As you are introduced, you realize that yes it is. But she is just sitting there. Saying nothing, is she even listening? What is her deal? Is she a snob? Why did she even come, if she didn't want to be here?
Time away from my friends. Energy just to make sure I shared the post on every single marketing platform. Emotions like excitement from a post well received, sadness from rejection on contributor opportunities, joy from hitting a new milestone, anger from troll-like comments.

I do not know where my childhood best friend is. Her name is Nicole, and she and I were best friends from first through fifth grade. We were Girl Scouts together, we would play games in her basement, and we had countless sleepovers at each other's houses. When I moved to South Carolina, we wrote each other letters, but eventually that tapered off and we lost touch....more
