A Movement, Extraordinary

posted by Catherine Connors

I was in Houston this weekend, having an extraordinary time with a community of extraordinary women and generally feeling extraordinary, and I’m not sure that I have the words to capture the extraordinariness of it all, in part because I […]

Ben Franklin And Me

posted by Catherine Connors

Kinda the last person you’d expect to meet at a women’s social media conference, but apparently he was attending a Tea Party or something and the rest is history. We are, like, total BFFs now. Me and Bill O’Reilly, too. […]

The Year In Review: Feel The Fear And Sob On Stage Anyway

posted by Catherine Connors

The most viscerally terrifying experience that I had this year: reading ‘Lost Boy’ for BlogHer’s Community Keynote. It was awesome and wonderful and all those things that one expects from feeling one’s fear and doing it anyway, but I was […]

Bad Moms, Bad Moms, Whatcha Gonna Do?

posted by Catherine Connors

You’re gonna join the club, that’s what. Because being bad is better in solidarity. And while it won’t help you bake better cookies, it will help you feel better about your lack of cookie-baking (and organic-baby-food-making, and sleep-training, and enjoying […]

The Power Of Ordinary People. With Laptops.

posted by Catherine Connors

A few years ago, I had the amazing opportunity to chat with Gloria Steinem. Yes, that Gloria Steinem. We – she and I and some other bloggers – talked about the Internet and blogging and whether social media could change […]

Hard To Tell

posted by Catherine Connors

I think that I might be having an existential breakdown. That, or I’m just exhausted and depressed after a month of dealing with the aftermath of my father’s death. Or both. I think both. The death of my father rattled […]

Babies And Blogging And Bacon, Oh My

posted by Catherine Connors

Oh, hey. Ever wondered what I sound like? No? Didn’t think so. But on the off-chance that you have been dying to know whether I have a high, chirpy Meg Ryan voice, or a low throaty Kathleen Turner voice or […]

Wordless Wednesday, Post-BlogHer Pre-Coffee Monday Edition

posted by Catherine Connors

I threw a party at BlogHer, and there was a unicorn. That is all.

Are We Having Fun Yet?

posted by Catherine Connors

So I’m somewhere in Michigan City, just outside of Chicago, and I have to say: although I wept more than few times yesterday, and although the coffee in this Super 8 motel is reason enough to weep further, I’m kind […]

(Nearly) Worldless Wednesday: BlogHer Flashback Edition

posted by Catherine Connors

Me at my first BlogHer conference, in 2006. Yes, those are pasties. And a fake tattoo. Both of which make one look way more confident than one feels. (Which, yes: I am far less confident, far less outgoing, than I […]

Geeks Of A Feather Flock In The Corners

posted by Catherine Connors

In two days, I’m traveling to Chicago for BlogHer. BlogHer is like Comic-Con, except with more women and babies and far fewer Trekkies. It vibrates at about the same geek frequency, though, which is something that too many people forget, […]

Miles To Go Before I Sleep

posted by Catherine Connors

Today is my grandfather’s funeral. Today I set aside the hum and buzz and happy thrill of traveling with my children and with dear friends and take a moment to say goodbye to Grandpa. Who I loved. Who I will […]

Dear Kate Gosselin: Let Me Get Back To You On That Bad Mother Thing

posted by Catherine Connors

So I wrote a post the other day, continuing my ruminations on Kate Gosselin and why she is  so judged and why that’s a problem for me and for everyone, et cetera, but it was – as a few readers […]

In Which My Daughter Decides To Shun The Spotlight

posted by Catherine Connors

Uh-oh. Let’s do the math here: if my stock-in-trade is stories about and pictures of my kids, and one of those kids decides that she is JUST SO OVER having her picture taken, and we calculate that equation as x […]

Jennifer Garner And Me: Exploiter Moms?

posted by Catherine Connors

Jennifer Garner has a problem with the paparazzi. I don’t have a problem with the paparazzi, but then again, I’m not Jennifer Garner. But just because I’m not a major movie star and don’t have paparazzi trailing me wherever I […]

To All The Moms That Blog, And More (A Mother’s Day Salute)

posted by Catherine Connors

(If you haven’t already, you can read Part I of this post here.) As I said yesterday, I came to blogging as Alice to a rabbit hole leading to Wonderland. All it took was one link to one mom-blog and […]

Me, The Mommy Blogger: An Odyssey In Two Parts

posted by Catherine Connors

I began blogging almost accidentally. I had never planned to keep an online record of life with the baby that I referred to, on the blog, as WonderBaby; in the early weeks of our life together, I was pretty much […]

Welcome To My Mother ‘Hood

posted by Catherine Connors

Three and a half years ago, I started a mommy-blog. I called it Her Bad Mother. Why I called it Her Bad Mother is a long story that I’ll tell you about some other time, but my reasoning more or […]

Stuff That You Never Knew You Always Wanted To Know About Me

posted by Catherine Connors

I’ve been meme-tagged by the totally awesome Kristen! Which is very exciting, and very timely, because weren’t you just dying to know some completely random stuff about me? And by totally random stuff, I mean, not-quite-random facts organized according to […]

To Rant, Or Not To Rant, Or Something

posted by Catherine Connors

I started this blog for the usual reasons: maintain a record of the Wonder Years with WonderBaby, share that record with farflung friends and family, keep up with the practice of writing (which, yes, could be done by finishing the […]

Blogger’s Beautiful Baby Boy Born!

posted by Catherine Connors

UrbanMommy’s trial by pregnancy is over: UrbanBaby arrived yesterday! And WonderBaby, Future Ruler of the Known and Unknown Universe would like a word… Dear UrbanBaby, Welcome to the world. It’s a good world. It’s not as comfortable as the world […]

Blog-Bashing Spelling Fascist Meanie Trolls: Turn Back Now

posted by Catherine Connors

So… This may mean absolutely nothing to many of you out there in the blogosphere, but Rebecca Eckler has a mommy blog. (FYI this post is not about Rebecca Eckler. There’s a segue coming. Bear with me.) (Oh, and if […]
