Skyping into the Seder: When Technology and Holidays Meet

Jack and Estelle and their family unofficially "adopted" me about 30 years ago, and we have became family. I have participated in almost every Passover seder with their family since then. These have largely been in NYC. This year (for a variety of reasons) I am unable to join them all at their son Daniel and his wife Leora's home in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I put on a brave face, but my heart was hurting. ...more

Let's Have An Atlanta Area BlogHer Meetup in June! Who's in?????

I remember my first meet-up with Atlanta BlogHers last October. It was amazing. I had the opportunity to meet BlogHers "in real life" that I read on a regular basis and many that I met for the first time. I still keep in touch with many of these women; we stop by each others blogs occasionally, tweet together and sometimes meetup. A good number of us will be attending the BlogHer 09 Conference that is appropriately themed "In Real Life." Unbelievably BlogHer 09 is less that 90 days away!

The Importance of Aunts

My sister had her first child on Wednesday, April 29th, and that made me a first time "official" aunt. (I decided that in keeping with my family's Eastern European Jewish heritage, I wanted to be called Tante Suzanne instead of Aunt Suzanne.) Since yesterday was Mother's Day, and from the vein of self-interest from which a large number of my blog topics emerge, it made me think about the role of aunts in people's lives. ...more

Social Media Manners

I had the honor of participating in BlogHer Biz '08. Part of my gig was to lead one of the round table 'experts' discussions. However, as what usually happens in a free flowing BlogHer conversation, I learned more from the fabulous women than I gave. Our talk turned to etiquette in social media .. what is proper and politie in the digital world. Do we still need to remember our manners? The Divas round the table kindly agreed to share their thoughts. ...more
