Newvember, By Jennifer Bogart  

Guest Post by Jennifer Bogart I’d like to take a moment to thank Jennifer Pitt for inviting me to share her space in the virtual world. Having the opportunity to reach out to new readers is a privilege I don’t take lightly.     I am a creature of habit – not because I’m lazy, but because change is uncomfortable. Newvember is about embracing change and recognizing that even little things can make a big […]


Letting Go at Blissdom Canada 3

Now that my post-Blissdom fog has cleared, I have realized a few things about myself. I had lunch last week with a new friend made at Blissdom, and something she said really made me think. When I commented about how going to Bliss was way outside of my comfort zone, she looked at me like I had two heads. “Are you kidding me?? You were so confident!!” “Fake it til you make it!” I responded, […]


7 Reasons I will Learn Nothing at #BlissDomCA 2

I am heading off to BlissDom tomorrow, Canada’s best social media and blogging conference EVER. I am really excited to connect with all of the people I have met in online blogging communities, and I have registered for a blogging mastermind full day workshop that starts tomorrow. I am really sad, though, that I am probably going to learn nothing from the whole conference, and here is why: Live tweeting. There is nothing more exciting than […]


The Little Book of Inspiration by Danny Brown 4  

The Little Book of Inspiration (Morning Rain Publishing) Yesterday, mortality may have caught up with me. Today, I welcomed it as a future friend who will simply help me remember the present… Life moves pretty fast and, in this always-on-the-go world that we find ourselves in, it’s becoming ever-harder to pause and reflect on what we see. Yet, if we don’t, we miss the opportunity to experience the things that could truly change our lives. […]


13 Life Lessons I Learned from My Two-chebag 18

My two-year old is wise beyond her years. She has almost perfected her grasp of sarcasm, and I think we are on the brink of a beautiful eyeroll. I am the proud parent (owner? manufacturer?) of what I refer to, with the utmost affection, as my little two-chebag. I adore her, and her feistiness, though some days I could definitely do with a lot less of it. She is a happy little thing; pretty well-behaved […]


I am Jealous of Your Facebook Profile Picture 8

It sounds ridiculous, I know; but I am. I am jealous of how many times you change it, and that you can do it with such abandon. You change it to the drink you just had, the meal you just ate, the picture of the oddly translated items on the Chinese food menu. I haven’t changed mine in 9 years. I can’t; I am tied to it, and I fear that is part of what […]


Winning for Nothing: Are We Raising Entitled Kids? 1

There was a storm of sorts in the NFL/parenting world this week when the Pittsburgh Steelers’ James Harrison returned trophies his two sons had received for participation. There was uproar on both sides of the fence: parents speaking out against him for doing it, and parents speaking out against the parents speaking out against him. I know, right? In the world I grew up in, we received trophies, badges, and a myriad of other accolades […]


Deprogramming Women 101 – Find Your Tribe

There seems to be a lot more talk in my life lately about women needing to be kinder to one another and while I am all for it,  I am finding that there is a lot of talk happening out of one side of people’s mouths. Who hasn’t “pledged” to be better to her sisters in vaginahood one second, and criticized a woman for something in the next? I’ll tell you who: every single one of […]


The Balance of Beauty and Brains

My 28-month old daughter is pretty cute. I know we all think that about our kids, but really…she is damn cute. Everywhere we go people are taken with her and tell us how beautiful she is, commenting on her eyes/cheeks/smile. And it scares me to death. The compliments (while it warms my heart to hear them and makes me swell with pride) scare me. The constant referring to her beauty and her charm (and oh […]
