In addition to my endless ramblings here, I also blog at NYCMomsblog.com. NYC Moms Blog is part of a nationwide group of blogger-Moms (including sometime guest blogger Katie Couric!) with sites all around the country.
Who knew there were that many women with that much to say? Oh, I guess anybody who knows any woman would know that we ALL have a lot to say!
Anyhoo – though I am deeply jealous, I am also truly thrilled to direct what meager traffic I may to the latest, greatest happening across the blogs: Silicon Valley Moms Roadtrip ’08. It’s five moms, one mini-van, a cross country road trip, lots of opinions and a whole lot of blogging going on.
The women selected to make the trip will have to endure:
1. Each other. (Mostly, they don’t really know one another except through their blogs. Could end up like Big Brother — trapped in a MiniVan until they’re voted out!)
2. Constant media attention. Seriously, these women are going to have to look good A LOT of the time. They will be on video, on local news casts, and more. I don’t know about you – but the “I just spent twelve hours in the car without a bathroom break” look doesn’t work for me. My advice: concealer and a ponytail. Works wonders.
3. All of us. See, not only are they taking the road trip – we all get to comment on it along the way. Talk about backseat drivers!
Still, all in all, it should be a great ride. Plus, it ends in San Francisco – a truly fabulous city, where the women will join the Blogher conference. (And get some pretty fine swag bags, from what I hear!) And I do love swag. Really I do.
I’ve been reading these women for awhile now. They are funny, smart, and way more accomplished than I am. So I’ll be clicking along as they drive along.
Give ’em a try.
