I believe I dragged an entire media group into tech hell with me, rather than get pulled out by them. As Murphy’s High Priestess of Podcasting, I shouldn’t be surprised. I’m hoping to be up sometime in the first quarter of the new year, may it be better all around than this one. Since we last talked, I’ve been in a car accident, recovered 95%, repaired my car, been reimbursed, bought a telescope, finished and mailed my Xmas crafts, and learned how to make pretty decent dumplings from scratch. I also caught my first nasty cold of the season, and my voice is now recovering. At the company Holiday party, I walked away with a sizeable Harry & David’s gift basket and am still nibbling away at it. Whoo!
Congrats to the new No Kidding! chapters: Orange County, CA; Tulsa, OK; Belgrade, Montana; and Shenzen, China. See the sidebar link on the right to find your nearest chapter or how to start one.
If you are a blogger attending BlogHer this summer, and you’re interested in being on a childfree women’s panel, please contact me. Teri the Purple woman is organizing this, and we need a voice to counteract the very vocal mommybloggers group being seen as encompassing all of techno-NewMedia-womanhood. Not to dis them or diminish their importance to the blogosphere, but society already has this tendency to see all women as now-or-future-mommies, and that’s just not true anymore. The first step to respecting women outside that social role is recognition that womanhood is separate from mommyhood. That will help us all.
If my podcast doesn’t get up in another month, I’ll probably revert to mor regular text-blogging and be on the panel as the relevant-stats-presenter. As it is, I don’t know if podcast-with-show-notes-blog counts. What do you think? Does it count as blogging? Let me know at the podcast at gettingby.net email.
Also, I’m dropping the voicemail line in 3 weeks at the end of this billing cycle. It’s a paid-for line, and I just can’t justify the monthly expense with my photo business (chronic fatigue) and my podcast (tech hell) both down for an unknown time. So if you ever felt like leaving a voice “hello” to me, please do so before Jan. 20th. 510-402-4888 while it lasts.
