Blogher Voice of the Week

BlogHer Voice of the Week: Gwenn Liberty Seemel on Small Strokes

Every day on BlogHer.com and across the blogs in the network, and every year in many sessions at the BlogHer Conference, the conversation inevitably turns to who we are, who we want to be, who we ought to be and who we're perceived to be...and how those all align or conflict. For example, here's my eternal query: Can't I like cute shoes and political discourse...openly, even simultaneously?...more

the struggle that most women still face is how to be a career woman, mother, wife, and homemaker ...more

BlogHer Voice of the Week: The Not-Ever-Still Life

Last week's BlogHer '10 conference reminded me that women are fixers, so many of us anyway. Have a problem? We're here for you -- we want to sit down together, listen, hold your hanky, your hand, your heart. ...more

...how much we take on from the emotional state of those we love.

It can be overwhelming at ...more

BlogHer Voice of the Week: Layne of Taxi Gourmet

Shows like Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations have given rise to gastrotourism and a strongly held belief that you haven't fully experienced a place until you've eaten with the locals. But what if you want to experience good local cuisine and 1) don't know any locals, and 2) don't have the cash or appetite to experiment? ...more

To get info from cab drivers. It would interesting to learn which city's drivers offer the best ...more

BlogHer Voice of the Week: crib chronicles

Last week BlogHer featured a post on how to recognize the signs when someone is drowning in water. A wake-up call for many I've talked to (and for me) that we don't always know the signs. This week, we were completely drawn in as Bon from crib chronicles delved into the signs of an entirely different kind of drowning in her post "at the red light". ...more

Bon is always such an incredible writer. It's nice to see her honoured here.

BlogHer Voice of the Week: kdiddy.org

There's nothing like a temper tantrum and a good cry to help a woman tesseract across space and time. In The yellow house across the street, kdiddy opens as her five-year old self, giving her mother hell on a hot August evening. The issue at hand? Having to take a bath. ...more

I love Kelly and I love this post. She is truly one of the most underrated writers in the blog ...more

BlogHer Voice of the Week: Chaotic Calm

As a debate over how--or whether--to educate children about birth control continues to simmer among parents, educators, religious leaders, our BlogHer Voice of the Week takes a storytelling approach to her argument for sex education. ...more

I agree that teens treat sex the same as they would any other recreational sport. Two girls in ...more

BlogHer Voice of the Week: Joy in This Journey

This holiday weekend I got a little bit of what I suspect some of the rest of you did too: Talking to friends and family who just don't "get" blogging, let alone Twitter, Facebook and the like. Their questions go something like this: "Why?" "WHY?" And "who has the time?" And "who cares what anybody had for lunch?" ...more

I got chills down both arms when I read her reason for why she writes out her journey. And I'm ...more

BlogHer Voice of the Week: C.L. Minou of Tiger Beatdown

There's an old truism about domestic violence that I've heard make the rounds of volunteers and victims alike: Want to be ignored? Yell "rape!" Want people to run to your rescue? Yell "fire!" All too often, women who reach out for help find themselves under attack for asking. ...more

It's heartbreaking.

Jezebel also had a great post today (yesterday?) about the idea of men ...more

BlogHer Voice of the Week: Justine van der Leun of Good. Food. Stories.

Our BlogHer Voice of the Week, Justine van der Leun, guest-blogging on Good. Food. Stories., shares her story of culinary exploration in Italy in a post that takes a unique spin on a theme popularized in novels and memoirs like Eat Pray Love. But unlike other American heroines in expat memoirs who are freed of the constraints of their urban, tortured thinking by abandoning all semblance of their former lives (and inevitably falling in love), Justine's already in love; her decision to move to the Umbrian region of Italy is a matter of course in a deepening relationship. ...more

BlogHer Voice of the Week: 10% Fiction

Bloggers are storytellers. Sometimes they paint you a picture in fine detail, until you recognize every detail; you see it in your mind's eye. The context is clear; the subtext explained, and you know you've been there before yourself. Sometimes, though, you get just a rough sketch...no names named, no motivations unearthed and examined. And yet a great storyteller can still convince you you've been there before yourself, even without all the gory detail. That's exactly what Carla Delvex from 10% Fiction does in her post, the breakdown of: friendship, and it's why we've named her the BlogHer Voice of the Week. ...more

I read your content Elisa and like it so much.Nice posting here. thanksmore
