I was a little less than hot this Mother’s Day weekend. I got a just “okay” massage, napped, read, watched pay per view movies – and spend as much time as possible in my pink fuzzy robe just surfing the net. I got caught up on blogs – and clogged up everybody’s feed on Facebook with my minute by minute musings – don’t you hate when people to do that? I was a great big mess of over share – just when I read a piece in the Sunday New York Times about the “Younger Generation” becoming more careful about what they let the world see of them on the web! Well, this train has long left that station for me. I have to be honest – I don’t have separate lives anymore. I don’t have a professional Facebook and a private one…..I don’t have one Pamela Madsen in one place and another one in another place. I tried that – and it didn’t work for me. And yes – I get that there is a difference between privacy and secrecy. But perhaps it is that I let you see who I am – that brings you back to this blog again and again.
So – in my rebellion against this new conservative under thirty generation of kids who are cautious about what they are sharing on line – let me tell you where I went on line this weekend – and what I think you might like to check out as well! You see – I had a great time becoming my own Stumble Upon….first of all – I get a lot of newsletters – and I hardly ever got the time to actually read them. And so I did! I am continuing to love this series by Anne Lamott on Oprah about getting to know your shadow. And this week she wrote about Finding The Person You Were Meant To Be: Where to Start. And somehow – from there – I found a rather controversial blog by Annie entitled “Why I Hate Mother’s Day”. I really got things going on Facebook with that one!
From there – I went to Susan Crain Bakos Blog called Sexy Prime. Susan, among other things - is an author of sexy “how to” books – and I often like her blog geared towards women in their sexy prime. She also had a Mother’s Day theme going – and this blog is worth a mention “Sexy Mom’s: New Sites Just For You”.
One of my new pet projects is a blog over at The East Coast Fertility. Look – I had more than my big thumb in the creation of the new site – and the birth of their brand new fertility blog - The Fertility Daily. And frankly – I just love going over there and admiring it! Plus - the submissions from the guest bloggers have truly rocked! Check out the fabulous Alisa Vitti’s blog on “Empowering Your Fertility Journey: What Every Woman Needs to Know Before She Conceives”.
If you are a Fertility Chatter – and like to dish – you can follow me to Face of Fertility a new site that I have been spending a little time in – when I am not cruising around to see what the world of fertility is up to at Fertility Authority and Fertility Ties.
I have also been getting to know another fertility blog by Sharon LaMothe. Her blog Surrogacy 101 – is not just about surrogacy even though there is a lot to say about that. She often does books reviews – and commentary on the issues of the day in the world of fertility. If you haven’t checked out Sharon – take a minute and visit her blog.
Yep – so that was a slice of life of my transparent Mother’s Day Weekend! Take that – under 30 Generation! Don’t share with us – your private thoughts on line! Instead – come on over to my blog – where I will introduce you to what a forty something does on line – personal growth, social commentary, sexuality, and baby making! All in a pink robe!
