January—I could have chosen a post about our newly-minted (at the time) president, but instead, I'm sharing my thank you to Steve Jobs for making my life easier.
February—I am a Blogger, Marketer, and Mother.
April—Recession-proof Life: In Search of a Simpler Way To Live and Be (Why we downsized our life, why we don't regret the decision.)
May—The FTC Wants to Regulate Mommy Bloggers? Bring 'em On! (Also this month I shared the recipe for the amazing potato-mac salad and went to the annual antiques fair in Grants Pass, OR.)
June—We were about to move (and I started a company) so the posting is a little light. Bunny finished first grade and I wrote about why we make the conscious decision to keep our kids media shy, especially when it comes to television.
July—I just can't pick a post for July. I was at BlogHer, Cat and I went on our 40-Whatever Birthday roadtrip through the midwest. I scored some Etsy finds and made some kick-ass pastas. I'll just link the whole month.
August—How The Women Of Ford, An Assembly Plant, And A Guy Named Larry Changed My Life. (I think this is my favorite post of the whole year.)
September—I wrote about the glaring omission of a "family food/culinary parents who cook good food" track at the first BlogHer Food conference and heard from a lot of you "parents who love to cook" who agreed with me. Maybe next year, a food blogger who is a parent will be part of the advisory team and we can shine a light on those of us who consider ourselves to be expert home cooks who support local, organic farmers/initiatives and also have a family to feed. As I said, feeding my family well--and teaching them about where their food comes from--is a political act. Perfect topic for a values track, no?
October—After a rash of teen suicides in my community, I wrote a letter to kids who might be hurting.
November—How about a recipe for a delish pasta sauce with one simple ingredient?
December—My babies are growing up, but I'm not letting go. Not just yet.
I hope you have a magical 2010!
