You are invited to celebrate Earth Day and Arbor Day at the Sarasota Children’s Garden next Saturday, April 13th from 2-3 PM. In addition to giving big bear hugs to our tree friends, I’ll be reading my book, Isaac and the Bah Family Tree. Additional details can be found in the flyer above. Hope to see you there!
Hot off the press and magazine newsstands! Look out for my Lean In story in the May edition of Cosmopolitan magazine. Words of gratitude can’t express how thankful I am to JC Ford and Cosmopolitan for giving me the opportunity to share my story in these glossy pages. Terrified by how my personal tale was going to come across, they pretty much hit it on the head or should I say knocked it out the park? I totally did set a curve ball goal for myself.
UPDATED: Want to read my Lean In story in its entirety? Visit the Lean In website here to read mine and share your own story!
Throw the confetti and cue the marching band. After being away so long, long, long — I’ve returned! Wahooo! What amazing tales will I share with you from this point forward? Only time will tell us that, but in the meanwhile here is what you probably already noticed and can expect.
1. Less blog clutter: As someone who is continuously trying to remove clutter from their life and live more simplistic, I did some much needed spring cleaning here. Old broken links about all the homies and amigas had to go. Heck, I even removed good working links for two reasons. Good working links can become bad links over night and I can’t keep up with them, but I can keep up with my own. Second reason is I really want to keep this about moi – ouch. In the beginning I think all that linking business was a mechanism to drive more traffic to my site, which isn’t super important as far as this blog is concerned.
2. Fewer categories: This also to remove the clutter. All those categories (mostly of countries and places) just started bothering me. I’m weird. I dunno. Anyhow, if you’re looking for something I wrote about Ethiopia, Tajikistan, walking across America or whatever, there is a nifty search bar on the sidebar and there is always the LinkWithin widget below each post. Each will guide you to some of the archives.
3. Fewer posts on the main page: No need to have 5-10 stories/blogs per page. Nope. 1-3 will be more of what you see from now on.
4. Randoms: In my past life I was single, sexy and living like a rock star. Um, okay… Not really. Life two years ago was a wee different from life now. More travel then and less now, unless frequent trips to the park count. I’m a mother of one, but I don’t want to blog about mommy stuff here 24/7 or anywhere, at least not now. I may post an occasional parent related post, but don’t look for any themes or structure here. What ever flies off the keys is what you’ll get. Having said that, I’m scared and looking forward to blogging like the good old days.
