Mother's Guilt Begins: Contemplating Third Trimester Travel to BlogHer

Mentally I cross off a business trip to Chicago and my high school reunion, which would take place in the two weeks before the conference. These are the sacrifices I must make as a mom to be. But no. Not my conference. Lunch with H-band after the appointment was tense. "I don't think she knows that this isn't just a blogging conference, it's my company's conference. MY company's conference." "Oh I think she does." ...more

Top 10 Things I'm Psyched For @Blogher09

In two days, I’ll be heading to Chicago to my very first blogging conference. When I started this blog seven months ago, I had no idea that there were so many bloggers out there.
