What Keeps You Awake At Night? (The 2nd Annual Anxiety Poll)

It has been exactly one year since we conducted BlogHer's 1st Annual Anxiety Poll on BlogHer.com. If you find yourself staring at the ceiling into the wee hours of the morning, take comfort in the fact that you're not alone.

Do You Return to See if Your Comment Was Answered?

You leave a comment, perhaps even asking a question or making a point that you know would be volleyed back if you were in a face-to-face conversation, and sometimes the blogger picks up the thread and answers you back to continue the exchange of thoughts and sometimes they don't depending on technical limitations, time, or connection.  But the question is: do you return to the comment section to see if it was answered there? ...more

Ten To Dos in August 2012

Here I am in the hotel at BlogHer 12 wondering what in the heck I might actually be able to get done this month. Probably not much... but here's what I'm going to try and do: 1) Order birthday gifts for a zillion peoples. 2) Book a hotel (or 2?) for our trip to Philly. 3) Move RJ into Prince J's old bedroom. 4) Blog about something fun? Funny? Weird? 5) Take TW on a date? For her birthday? Or just for fun? Maybe? 6) Get some work done on JMP's Christmas stocking. 7) Call my dad.
