I'm Not That Kind of Blogger

I'm Not That Kind of Blogger

So.. what the hell do I write about then?

1. Blogging. But maybe I'm just stuck in a rut because I can think of 3 - 4 other semi-recent posts where I've blogged about blogging. I do what I do.

2. Culture. But doesn't everybody, really?

3. Soapbox stuff. My new all-inclusive category for the randoms that didn't fit in anywhere. Feminist film rants, racism, sexism, education, gender, socialization.

4. Naturally, my life. But in a reflective kind of way, not a "what am I doing this week" way. Because I'm boring and all I do lately can be summed up like so: look for jobs occasionally, write and think about writing other stuff, read/knit for days, be with the people in my life.

5. Travel. There are some cool photos from my Asian life floating around; however, due to the Blogger-Wordpress migration, I need to resize them. I'll get to it, sometime. A ton of posts and snippets on living/working in China. Plus a personal experiences guest post series starting this week.

6. Possibly books. I read a lot. But I haven't actually read something new and good in a few years. I do eliminate most books because they're not long enough to be worth buying (I can read any book in a matter of hours).

How to Set Strong Boundaries for Your Blog

How much do you share online? With the 2015 University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children's Hospital National Poll on Children's Health showing that more than half of mothers and a third of fathers discuss their children's health and their parenting experiences online, one can safely say that "sharenting" has become the norm more than the exception. That said, it doesn't necessarily mean that everyone who has jumped on this bandwagon has thoroughly thought out how much they share and weighed its pros and cons. I'd even say that our realization of this trend's popularity has only now magnified the more serious issues and questions that lie underneath such as its long-term consequences on our children.   Read more >

Was That Comment Because of My Race?

After reading this post by my French yummy mummy blogger friend, Muriel Jacques, I felt compelled to analyze what had happened to me yesterday at the post office. At the time, I simply brushed it off and was able to convince myself to just let it go. However, I knew deep down it bothered me and reading Muriel's post sort of gave me permission to admit to myself that it was something and not just nothing.   Read more >

Going to a Blog Conference When Your Blog is In-Between

I accepted that I would feel lost, insignificant, and of course, in limbo, amidst the sea of confident women who probably wouldn't care about me. Why should they? We don't really know each other. I've only related to some of them virtually and so we only "semi" know each other. We're in-between.   Read more >
