A week and a half ago, I attended my second BlogHer conference. It was many things to many people. For me it was inspiring, thought-provoking, educational, interesting, fun, exhausting, exciting, frustrating, troublesome, inspiring, surprising, exhilarating, awesome, and (yes, I’ll say it for the third time) inspiring. Unlike my first year of attending BlogHer, I made a point of pacing myself this year. I decided to only attend a few of the panels and some of the keynotes. I made plans to do things outside the hotel (like sight-seeing with my friend Heather from A Mama’s Blog). I made sure I had some downtime in my hotelRead More →
I was recently notified that my blog was selected as a finalist for About.com’s favorite parenting blog award. I don’t think I’ve ever been in the running for an award like this and am truly honored! :) If you have a second, I’d love it if you’d give me your vote. All you have to do is click over to About.com, click on my blog name (Crunchy Domestic Goddess, in case you forgot) ;) and it registers a vote for me. Easy, peasy! It only takes 2 seconds. :) I’m really behind right now and would love your help to catch up a bit. ThankRead More →
Word on the street is that today, Jan. 14, 2010, is National Delurking Day. You know what that means? If you read my blog but never comment, today’s the day to leave a little note to let me know you exist. :) Don’t be shy. Say hi. You know you want to. ;) As always, thanks for reading Crunchy Domestic Goddess. Don’t miss a single Crunchy Domestic Goddess post, subscribe to my blog.
It’s been nearly 5 years since I started my blog and while it’s grown a lot in that time over the past year I’ve definitely not been obsessing over tending to my blog as much as I used to. It’s not that I don’t have topics that I want to write about, but that I’ve been focusing more on myself personally lately instead of blogging like a fiend writing as much as I’d like to. For those of you who’ve been around for a while, those of you who are brand new to my blog or those of you who fall somewhere in between, I’dRead More →
My first BlogHer experience is over with and I’m left wondering how it can already be done. While at times it seemed like the weekend would never end (or rather that I would never sleep again), it also seemed to go by in a blur. I already miss the women I got to know better over the weekend – women who are more than just blogging buddies, but who are friends. I decided to compile a list of sorts with some of the things from the conference that surprised me, made me smile, had me laughing out loud, saddened me and even made me cry.Read More →
This past Saturday I did something that, due to my anxiety, I could have never done just 3 or 4 months ago. I attended a local pre-BlogHer meet-up at The Cup in Boulder. I was hoping a friend or two would be able to go with me (for the company, as well as to calm my nerves and make sure I went!), but no one was available. Still, I was feeling good about it and excited at the opportunity to meet some more local bloggers. But then I almost didn’t go – not because I had a good excuse or something came up, but becauseRead More →
