Writing For Huffington Post

November 9, 2012

I’ve accepted a gig writing for Huffington Post about open relationships and non-traditional family dynamics. It’s my goal to write about the intersection of parenting, relationships, sexuality and communication. My first post, about the 2012 election results, went live today. I’ll still be writing straight parenting news for Strollerderby, and blogging my personal adventures here. [...]

Being Nibbled By The Homeschooling Bug

June 24, 2011

I keep starting blog posts and then not writing them because OMFG you would not believe how much writing I do all day. I mean, you would, because I post it all to the Internets and share it with you on the Twitter and like that. But it turns out that even I can become [...]

The Queen of Cups Quits Her Day Job

May 12, 2010

A few weeks ago, I sat down with a friend. A Tarot deck lay between us. “Lay out two paths,” I said. “I want to see how my life goes, who I am, on either side of this decision.” She laid out the paths. On one side, I continued teaching preschool and writing as a [...]

Book Giveaway/Review: Your Money, The Missing Manual

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 [...]

The Not Quite Weekly Links

April 11, 2010

I totally owe you guys a links post. It’s been a bit more than a week, sorry about that. It turns out that I can’t sleep five hours a night and work two full-time jobs forever, and I’ve been kind of off my game the past few weeks. Sorry about that. So without further ado, [...]

April 10, 2010

Yesterday I got a new haircut. When I got home, Rio looked at it and said, “Oh, Mommy, Mommy, Mommy. No. No, your hair.” I allowed as how I rather liked it, and had in fact just paid someone a lot of money to make it look like this. “It was getting too long and [...]

Beauty All Around Me

March 31, 2010

I’m having a craptastic day. A day that is as out-of-focus as this blurry photo of me. A photo I took last weekend at a clothing swap where I was feeling beautiful but then it came out all wrong. Which is kind of how I feel today: I should be beautiful, but I’m coming out [...]

Best of Web: Moms Who Blog Edition

March 21, 2010

It’s been a fascinating week to be a mommyblogger. Usually, I’m not very interested in talking or writing about blogging. 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 [...]

Weekly Links, Now With More Sleep

March 20, 2010

Here’s the links. I’ve been down with a stomach bug most of the week, and didn’t write as much as I normally do, but I had fun with what I did write. The news item of the week, of course, is the NYT snarking on moms who blog. Did You Really Call That Kid A [...]

A Blog of One’s Own

March 16, 2010

My corner of the blogosphere has been in an uproar over the New York Times article scathingly titled, “Honey, Don’t Bother Mommy. I’m Too Busy Building My Brand.” I snapped off a retort on Strollerderby yesterday, but now that I’ve had a chance to think (and read) more about it, I have something more personal [...]
