Week at a Glance – January 24th...

I cannot believe that the final week of January is already upon us. My “revisit in the New Year” list has far less lines through it than I had hoped, and my personal goal to exercise more has not picked up nearly as much steam as I had planned. That said, February proves to be…

MB2.0 – Are You a Hybrid Mommy ...

Last summer I wrote a post that came back to bite me a few times about bloggers and their relationship with members of the public relations field. Some of you will remember the PR black-out brouhaha, but what you may not know is how much incredible support I received in e-mails and Twitter messages about…

#TU – Thumbs Up, Twitter Friends.

For months I’ve been meaning to share this idea, but there never seemed to be a good time. I tweet with hundreds of hashtags for anything from Sitewarming Parties to snarky remarks best suited to one big jumbled word. Tonight is the night I share my idea with the world. Okay, so for right now…

A woman participates in a private conversation with a friend on an instant message platform. That friend cuts and pastes portions and shares them with others. That was a private conversation. That is wrong. A man talks to a colleague over a series of casual e-mails about a problem he is having at work. That…

Resourceful Blogging: Product Provide...

In April there was a lot of noise about mommy bloggers being authentic…or not. There were arguments about who is cashing in on whom, the differences between journaling and owning a monetized site…and if there are differences. One of the best things to come out of what in the end turned into a meaningful discussion…

Resourceful E-mail Management Tip

Like many of you, I am bogged down in e-mails. Exciting opportunities sometimes get lost in between blog comments, sneaky spam, pics from family, and marketing e-mails. Just when I think I’m catching up on sorting and responding to e-mail, I suddenly realize I’ve got 300 unread messages and at least as many that I’ve…
