When Frump Meets Glamour

When she first came out I was struck by how incredibly young she appears. But I read that she’s 26. I dunno. I have a hard time with that one. I was feeling pretty old hanging out back there in the green room. But my nervousness was put to rest by Diane Birch’s genuine [...]

The Blogging Thing? It has its Perks

Yesterday I found myself talking up the Philly Moms Blog to a non-blogging writer friend. (They’re still looking for some bloggers in Philly, if you happen to be interested, by the way.)

The Before, and The After

Too Many Glowing Rectangles
