Shamelessly Tooting My Own Horn

Shamelessly Tooting My Own Horn

This morning I was shocked to find an email from an editor at BlogHer in my inbox saying they were going to publish my most recent Mom Code post on their Family blog page. Immediately I felt like I'd won the Pulitzer Prize, wait did I say Pulitzer? I meant Publisher's Clearing House and that dude with the ginormous check and balloons was knocking on my door ready to hand it over. I'm pretty sure the feeling would be the same...total elation!

 

 

I was so excited and beside myself that I immediately went to BlogHer's website so I could see my post, but it wasn't there. So I thought maybe it would be published sometime this week. So I went back to my inbox to reread the email and only then did I notice the date, December 26th...four days ago. The day after Christmas. Who checks their email the day after Christmas? Certainly not me! Isn't the whole world on pause from the 25th until January 1st because it sure seems that way according to the amount of tourists walking around the tourist trap of a town next to us and also according to the TV as absolutely f*ck all has been on. Plus, I normally wouldn't have even checked that email if it weren't for that Target debacle. (Man, Target has really been letting me down lately.)

So I was bummed I missed seeing my post on the front page of their Family section, but completely unbummed that they selected my post in the first place. So thanks, guys!

There is no monetary compensation (although that would've been icing on the cake) but there is a profound sense of accomplishment especially for someone who deals with poop all day. I'm super proud and thrilled. Hopefully, there will be more to come...if only I could write in my sleep. Talk about multi-tasking at its finest!

BlogHer '10 Recap: You Are Powerful

I went into BlogHer '10 thinking about the recap I'd write AFTER it was all over, which sounds weird, doesn't it? It's true, though. I've been to five BlogHer Cons (plus BlogHer Food '09) and I work here, too. I know the scene. We come. We connect. We laugh. We cry. We learn. We get angry. We wear great shoes. We're overwhelmed. That stuff -- it's the same every year. This year, going into the conference, I was really tired before I ever landed in NYC.   Read more >

Extreme Couponing One Year Later

On January 18,2011, I saw a post by Family Frugal about Mr Coupon and his appearance on TLC's Extreme Couponing special. This piqued my interest, and I started exploring the world of coupon bloggers. After a week of digging around in their part of the blogosphere, I had a brilliant idea -- I would become an extreme couponer and I'd blog about it! I was picturing a funny series of three or four posts, most of which would be rambling funny pieces about not being able to manage a complete grocery shopping trip (20 minutes in a grocery store and I was ready to ditch the cart and leave) or public arguments between me and my partner about stockpiling. I was going for humor. Or I thought I was.   Read more >
