Blog it Forward Six Degrees Part II

( Blogging andKudos andMe )

My apologies for the delay!  As a reminder, the idea behind BIFSD (for lack of a better name) is to stretch out beyond my inner circle and see what I find.  I chose a blog from my blogroll and then chose a blog from their blogroll, and onwards until I found the 6th degree blog.  [...]

Where IS my oxygen mask, anyway?!

( Kudos andMe andMy Family )

Karen over at Troll Baby wrote a great post a few days back about the importance of being Selfish. I want to send an MTM shout-out to her by way of thanks. I am a firm believe that becoming a parent (and specifically a mom) does not mean sublimating your every desire for the needs [...]

Template Kudos

There’s nothing like getting to the bottom of a bowl of soup…

( Business Stuff andKudos andMe )

Everything takes longer than I think it will. I don’t know if that makes me an optimist or just stupid. This blog is the perfect example. I think, “La la la [ok, maybe I don't think that EXACTLY], I think I’ll start a blog.” All kinds of people have blogs and I’m technologically more savvy [...]
