NaBloPoFail

Your ads will be inserted here byEasy AdSense.Please go to the plugin admin page toPaste your ad code OR Suppress this ad slot. So pretty much every year since I’ve been blogging, I’ve done NaBloPoMo. Except this year. You wanna hear my excuse?  It’s really good, I swear. Ready? Okay. ...

Flake

I’ve been a big time, grade A, first class blog flake lately. Not exactly news for anyone who has been keeping track of my update schedule over here, to be sure.  But I’ve also been a flake in keeping up at my friends’ blogs.  Now THAT is pretty sad.  This...

Sucker Punch

I did something unwise as we were going to bed last night. I fired up Safari on my iPhone to catch up on a couple blogs while Kile tucked the boys in and got into bed himself. This was a poor idea because I read something that brought me to...

Chuck it all

I want to say for the record that I HATE posts like this.  Nothing bugs me more than a blogger who threatens to pack up her toys and go home.  Are they hoping people talk them out of it?  Are they being overly dramatic?  And no one wants to see...

Truth and Consequences

I’ve been doing a lot of introverted-style thinking about this blog and the blogging community at large, social responsibility and blogging responsibility.  I think we all know that I tend to approach blogging and the internet community at large rather naively.  This is not a big surprise.   I tend to...

Grieving and Blogging

I’ve made no secret that I started this blog four years ago during one of the saddest periods I’ve experienced in my life so far.  2004 became something of a dark tunnel to me and I was having a hard time finding a way out.  Blogging became that way out...

Days of Grace

Like a lot of good ideas, this one started over at Schmutzie’s place.  The idea here is to embrace the good things in our life, especially when we’re feeling rather grinchy.  Since my grinchy feelings are taking more of a front-seat these days, I think I could use this excersize.  So...

Oh, grow up already

So we’ve already established that Marilyn (which is me, I’m talking about myself in the third person, apparently) is in something of a mood this week.  But even if I weren’t, I would probably STILL write this post which is why I’m going to go ahead and publish it, even...

BlogHer 08: Oh. My. Stars. The LINKS.

I hope you all enjoyed the virtual landslide of photos I had from BlogHer this year (*cough*).  I’m really rather upset with myself that I didn’t take more.  But it was SO hard to do anything when I had Evie with me besides just deal with Evie.  See, looking back,...

Excitement and Dread, BlogHer Style!

First: If you aren’t going to BlogHer this week then I will have to apologize now.  I’m not guaranteeing anything, I doubt I’ll be posting about much else for at least the next week.  I’m not wanting to rub anyone’s nose in it or anything or say, “Neener, neener!  I’m...
