Where Were You 10 Years Ago?

The BlogHer editors have been doing a lot of time travel this year, as we continue our Selfiebration of the power of the blogging community while rolling up to our 10 year anniversary conference next month. As we look back over the past decade we find ourselves talking, so often, about who we WERE in 2004, and how we became who we ARE. I've found our team's stories funny and inspiring, with so many "Whoa, I didn't know that!" moments that I wanted to share them with you … and we want to hear your stories, too! ...more
Thanks for the prompt - it got me writing again after a long break! more

"After a while, you kind of just get used to not speaking to your mom." I said those words, to my own surprise and without the least bit of sarcasm, two nights ago while at dinner with an old colleague. I had never described the radio silence between my mother and I in that way before. Perhaps, without realizing it, I have finally become resigned to being a motherless child. ...more
