I'm Supposed to Play with These Kids?

I actually considered not writing this, even though I felt compelled to do so. Because this borders a little too closely on something I may want to pretend doesn’t exist. Something I may deny. Something my ego hates to admit. Most of the time, I pretty much can’t stand playing with my kids....more

I feel the EXACT SAME WAY and I hate to admit it to anyone. I didn't know anyone else felt this ... more

Why I Made A Kid-Free List On Twitter (And What Happened When I Did)

Creating my kid-free list seemed innocent enough to me at the time. I tend to swim in a sea that seems primarily comprised of mommybloggers and daddybloggers, and I was suddenly possessed of the urge to find and collect those out there who fit my particular demographic: people over 30 who do not have children. I intended nothing political by or pre-supposing about it. I simply had the very human desire to see myself reflected out in the world. ...more

I didn't think twice about your Twitter list, probably because we've had this conversation ... more

Reports of American Idol's demise in Season 10 may be a bit premature. Yes, it's going through a major transformation. Only Randy Jackson remains from any previous season's judging panel. He's joined by two wild cards: Jennifer Lopez -- struggling to stay relevant in a world of Lady Gagas, Ke$has and Taylor Swifts -- and Steven Tyler, who has possibly not been relevant for longer than J-Lo....more

Has Facebook Lowered Blog Traffic and Comments?

Where I used to get an average of 60-80 comments a post. While I can still pull in 3-digit comments on the important posts, I am often lucky to get 30 or 40 comments now. (Sometimes I am annoying and flat out ask people to comment so my poor mother will stop calling me with worry that my blog is sucking up a storm. She's cute that way.) ...more

I think Facebook has actually increased my traffic - mainly from extended family members/long ... more

Please Let Me Name Your Baby

I'm obsessed with baby names. Freakishly obsessed. In fact, I'd like to name your baby. Ask my friends. I'm breathlessly giddy when someone asks my opinion on a combination of first and middle names with the surname or the siblings' names. My heart races just thinking about it. ...more

Completely. I don't like it as a girls name either. But one of the ladies who named their ... more
