Is Blog Lurking Really So Wrong?

I lurk on blogs. There, I said it! I read content and don’t leave any thoughts, feedback, useful criticisms or provide new and interesting avenues of discussion. I eavesdrop on conversations and then sneak away, directing my friends to those posts which we then discuss on our own. I sometimes act upon knowledge gleaned and conclusions drawn from those preyed upon posts. I steal away with book suggestions, often running off to buy them and many more by the same author and others I encounter on my buying spree. ...more

This is a great point. Sometimes, I get to a post late and it already has a crazy amount of ...more

Femme fatale: Fatal to feminism?

"Erotic Love in Spanish American Literature." Or, my final undergraduate Spanish class. It's not as raunchy as it sounds — no porn (yet), and so far the course focuses mostly on the historical context of each book we've read (i.e. post-revolution Mexico in Arráncame la vida and crime-riddled 1980s Colombia in Rosario Tijeras. ...more

Literary Agents and One Night Stands

Hello, ladies, I just joined Blogher and wanted to introduce myself via my favorite post about writing and sending out work to literary agents. Because seeking representation is such a vulnerable and self-exposing act, I wrote a post comparing waiting for an agent to call me back to a one night stand to call back after a night of craziness. It's all very vulnerable.  ...more

#SpeakLoudly: Laurie Halse-Anderson's "Speak" Is Not Porn

Melinda is just a girl that went to a party. It was her first high school party and it did not go the way she had planned. How could it? Melinda never planned on being raped. After being raped Melinda stopped talking. Speak is her story -- and at least one man in Missouri would like you to think it is soft porn. ...more

It's been several years since I read the book and as I don't own it I got the name mixed up. ...more

Lessons from Kelly Cutrone Part.1

I just started reading Kelly Cutrone's If You Have to Cry Go Outside. And its a great fucking book so far. Page turner and full of her own life stories. In the beginning she talks about her desire to move to New York, be a part of the NY world, the early lessons she learned and mistakes made. She mentions the importance of having a good tribe around you. Not tribe in the literal sense more of the figurative. Having good group of people around you to assist in certain parts of your success in life. This is especially essential in the beginning of your journey....more
