Another Epilogue: More Popular Than The Unabomber

I feel a little overwhelmed that I’m doing a “Where I’ve Been This Week” post because I feel like that’s for A-list bloggers. And the list is NOT just about the alphabet. Which sucks because my name DOES begin with A.

But going to visit these posts will be SO worth it. And you have all weekend to do it!

My column is up. I dedicated it to all the parents of smelly kids. Mostly because bath time sucks. Bonus? Adorable picture of my daughter included. Seriously. Click here: Smelly Kids.

BlogHer syndicated a post of mine that I wrote after receiving a LOT of mean comments on a particular post. If you are a blogger or a writer or have ever had your words taken wrong. Or right. Click here: I Don’t Write To Hurt You, And I Don’t Believe You Write To Hurt Me.

My friend Alli of Alli n’ Son asked me to guest post while she’s living it up in Seattle. I hate her too. But not as much as I hate all those perfect moms out there. Click here: Perfect Parents And Other Reasons Not To Have Friends

My friend Amy of Accidental Musings asked me to guest post. She does a daily picture so I broke out a picture I took last week. Not for my amazing photography skills, but because it encompassed all that is wrong in parenting and maybe life. Click here: Who buys this for their child?

In more local news:

I have given up on doing my podcast for the Nobody Told Me! group from December. Moving to running two classes a month this year will either give me more fodder in which to podcast or take too much time up for me to podcast. The jury is still out. And FYI: the January 11th class is already full, but we have openings in our first ever daytime class on January 26th. And don’t forget that we have babysitting! Email me if you need it.

And last but not least, there are only a few spots left in my Art of Blogging class at the Visual Arts Center in Richmond, Virginia! I’m not going to be web-casting or Skyping it at this time, but local readers can click here and scroll down to find: The Art of Blogging

Hopefully, next week will be less exciting.  (That last line makes me officially old.)

Alex Iwashyna went from a B.A. in philosophy to an M.D. to a SAHM, poet and writer by 30. She spends most of her writing time on, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. I have to tell you (and don’t tell the others), I resisted the visits to BlogHer. I signed up over there last May, kind of hated it, and never went back. but so many of you lovelies are now getting posts up at the mighty BlogHer. so I gave in and edited my profile (it wouldn’t let me update my picture so I deleted it), and commented away. all because I love you. I hope you’re happy.

    1. Didn’t I offer you enough alternatives? Geez!
      And I won’t tell. Just tweet to them ‘great post on @blogher’. It’s true without having to do anything else about it. I’d take it 🙂

  2. Following your Blog from the very beginning was a bit like a pregnancy. Some nausea at the start and then ups and downs throughout, but it looks like you are about to give birth to a very healthy child.
    Congratulations on your massive progress and for all I know, you are an A-List Blogger.

  3. Alex, just reading about all that makes me feel tired, but I’m an old bag and you are not. I can’t think of a more awesome blogger to get this exposure–you deserve it all! Off to check your posts!

  4. Thank you for putting up the links to the sites where you guest posted. I often see you mention them throughout the week or month, but forget to go and click on them.

  5. Ok, I just read “I Don’t Write to Hurt You” and have to say that it was an fabulous post! It’s so true that life is a series of moments, and we are all hypocritical. Judging other people as a whole based on what they write is stupid and a waste of time. Sometimes I sound like a terrible parent because I feel like a terrible parent at that moment, not because I am one. Every blogger should read that post. It’s perfect.

    1. Thank you so much for going to read posts and especially for letting me know that one meant a lot to you. And this: “Sometimes I sound like a terrible parent because I feel like a terrible parent at that moment, not because I am one.” Exactly
