Writing at the intersection of motherhood, feminism and my Latinidad

Welcome Blogher peeps!

You might have clicked on that link in your latest Blogher Attendee newsletter and found yourself here.

First let me say thanks for clicking! Or oops, you clicked, but stay a moment.

Next, come say hi to me at the "Leadership: What is "Pro-Woman" in a Post-Palin World?" panel on Friday! It's at 2:45 pm. So take your break before me. I'm sure it's gonna be a fab conversation.

Lastly, don't forget why my link was even in the Blogher newsletter - BlogHer SOS!

BlogHer's Rock! That is all we have to say. Okay maybe we have a little more to say...

Thanks to the fabulous idea from Veronica and Kim we will be hosting "BlogHer SOS - Save our Soap". This means we will be gathering unused amenities at the registration desk to be donated to Deborah's Place in Chicago. The pickup is on Saturday so if you want to donate, do it before Saturday. Also, the Hotel does donate used amenities to a local shelter, so nothing will go to waste!

And I do have to give 100% of the credit for the idea to Kim and the info on Deborah's Place to my fabu coworkers who helped organize a similar donation drive earlier this year. See my friends, that's my real #1 skill - networking - I get people together. So make sure you get together with me this coming weekend so I can hook ya up later on.

I have your BlogHer session on my calendar, and unless something goes haywire, I plan to be there. Hope to get a chance to meet you before or after - I'm sure it will be a great talk!

I'm on the BlogHer Green Team and our goal was to offer suggestions that would help reduce waste during the conference. THANK YOU for doing this!! Reducing waste is great, but when you can do it and help someone else - its SO much better!
