a Rant, a Tribe, and a Fear

You know what I really do not like? Well, I don’t care if you do or not.  I’m fixing to tell you.  Fitness models that have obviously had plastic surgery.  You know: boob jobs and such. That drives me insane.  Well, only the ones who are blasting pictures of themselves on Instagram and Facebook, screaming […]

What My Boomama Taught Me

The lovely Sophie Hudson was the keynote speaker this past weekend at AWBU.  Honestly, I had no idea who she was and was totally confused with her blog name “Boomama.”  Apparently, I live under a rock, because everyone else knew her.  I was at #AWBU to learn about tech, not to listen to mushy stuff, […]

Bells are Ringing

Minted has sponsored this post, but as always, all opinions are my own.

This weekend is the Arkansas Women Bloggers Unplugged: Retreat & Conference. I am so excited, but I am starting to get a little nervous too! This is my very first blogging conference.

Good News

When I started blogging a few months ago I didn’t realize all the “other” stuff that goes into blogging.  Real bloggers have their own language and etiquette.  I was lost.  I just wanted to be a cool girl with a blog.  I have always wanted to be famous, but being a shy girl from rural […]

Please Be Kind

You know what makes me sad? Mean bloggers. Over the last couple of days, I have read several very foul comments on a few of the blogs I frequent.  I don’t understand.  We are all human, most of us are women, some of us are mothers, but not a single one of us is perfect. […]
