As we announce this week our #BlogHer16 Voices of the Year honorees, my mind is back in the main ballroom of last year's BlogHer conference.
Though I became VOTY chair in 2014, 2015 was the first time I really saw behind the curtain to everything that goes on to produce the Community Keynote. Friends, it is crazy....more
The joy of learning the Voices of the Year judges chose me as one of the readers to read my post at BlogHer '14 waned very quickly.
It wasn't a lack of pride in a well-written piece, nor was it a lack of understanding what an honor it is to stand on the stage at the BlogHer conference and read in front of 3,000 women. The joy slowly seeping out of my soul and puddling around my feet was based on the fact that I'd need to stand in front of those 3,000 women and read about my mental health.
Last week I bought a new dress.It took me a long time to make up my mind to buy it. It’s not my usual thing. It’s red and fitted – no, downright snug – and cut alarmingly low in the front. It’s sophisticated and sexy. The fabric has just enough give that it’s comfortable, not confining, and I loved it from the moment I put it on....more
We are so happy, so excited to see your submissions for Voices of the Year (VOTY) and Photos of the Year (PhOTY) come rolling in.

A mulling cauldron of thoughts and emotions began to bubble and boil the moment I read the headline:

It's now been four days and counting since I got back from BlogHer 2013 (#BlogHer13) and the adrenaline rush of being "social" butterfly Estelle, is slowly dissipating amidst the daily onslaught of my "mom" responsibilities, from doing six loads of laundry, to cleaning up messes, to dealing with temper tantrums, to organizing like a banshee three supremo playdates for my four-year-old daughter, one after another (sprinkler park, beach trip, pool/shopping trip)....more
