I literally cannot believe the blogosphere (in particular, the momosphere) is still buzzing about this whole Sweetney/Mrs. Fussypants thing.  I mean… STILL?  Has it been a slow...

Self-consciousness and BlogHer

Your ads will be inserted here byEasy AdSense.Please go to the plugin admin page toPaste your ad code OR Suppress this ad slot. Perhaps, just maybe, it’s ironic that I’m speaking on a panel about overcoming introversion at BlogHer this year and I find myself feeling rather, well, introverted about...

What happened to compassion?

Are we, as a people, losing our compassion for each other?  I see and hear things all the time that just make me feel ILL.  People have so little regard for each other anymore.  Where did this come from?  When did it become “ok” to ignore those in need, treat...
