Thumbnail image for Book Giveaway/Review: Your Money, The Missing Manual April 19, 2010

Welcome to my long-awaited (at least by me) review of Your Money: The Missing Manual . It’s taken me weeks to review this book because it is so damn good. Obviously, I’m a fan of J.D. Roth’s approach to managing money. I was a loyal reader of his blog, Get Rich Slowly, for years before [...]

Best of Web: Moms Who Blog Edition

March 21, 2010

It’s just the current medium for a lot of my writing; what I have to say generally seems more interesting to me than how I say it. Not this week. First, the New York Times [...]

A Blog of One’s Own

March 16, 2010

(Slightly More Than) Weekly Link Round-up

January 30, 2010

OK, so I’ve been more than a little out of it on the professional aspects of blogging lately. Sure, I’ve been writing. I might even have done some good writing. But I haven’t been quite up to snuff on the less-fascinating stuff like invoicing or sending out queries or rounding up my links at the [...]
