I arrived home last evening from a brief business trip that left me feeling physically drained, as if I’d just been up all night with a sick child and also ignited, as if someone just handed me the keys to a new sports car. Never did I expect the extraordinary comment my husband would say to me when he got home from work. The topic of women who work in technical fields, successful women and if it matters whether orRead more…

I don’t envy Jakob Nielsen. Sometimes his Alertbox submissions drive everyone into a tizzy. Most of the time I don’t read them, not because I may sometimes disagree with his points, but more because I feel like he’s lecturing from a pulpit. Whenever he says, “Don’t do this thing”, my feedreader explodes with commentary from people who think he’s just invented seedless watermelons and must be worshipped.

When I was pregnant with my first child, one of the senior citizen co-workers where I worked told me, “You’ll never sleep again.” I hated that she was right. I am about to turn 49 years old (on Sunday). Like some of myRead more…

I’m big on volunteering my time to organizations and if I can’t actually be there in body and soul, I can be there in other ways. A meme going around by search marketers is a bit of a linking way of lending a hand. The idea originated at SEORefugee. I was tagged by Andrey Milyan. The idea is present the links of the one who tagged you, and add your own (and you can add those of others you seeRead more…
