A Mom Blog Social Network
Unless you live under a cyber rock (or you have yet to endure the pleasure of childbirth, adoption, or raising a child in any way), you know that Jill Smokler (a.k.a. Scary Mommy) wrote a book — a snort-coffee-out-your-nose funny book Confessions of a Scary Mommy.
Jill buzzed through MY town last weekend (okay, she took some time out from schmoozing at the Social Media Moms Conference and blitzing through Disney) and held a book signing at my local Barnes and Noble. Of course, I was there.
And I must tell you, she was as witty, candid, and utterly delightful in person as she is on her blog and in her book...and much thinner. (No, I'm not saying that to kiss ass, but because she writes about her body image issues, but she could totally qualify as MILF material. Just saying.)
|Yes, that's the copy YOU can win right there in my hand.|
Jill read from her book (the chapter on family vacations — how apropos), dished the dirt on a few topics she can't write about online, and discussed the ever-changing worlds of blogging and publishing. It was enlightening and depressing and through-provoking all at the same time. And laced with some trademark language that would make a sailor blush, as well.
I met few bloggers I knew online, and it's always a wonderful experience to have a moment to talk with someone who "gets" you (because you know all those non-bloggers just think we're weird).
I had to buy a book while I was there, support blog-to-book writers and all that jazz, but since I already owned a signed advance review copy, I decided to buy a copy for you. Someone out there can win a signed copy of Confessions of a Scary Mommy just in time for Mother's Day. How's that for a rocking present?
The giveaway will close on Friday, May 11th at 9pm ET.
