At MomsLA

I wrote about how the web hates Mommy Bloggers. I’ve got a fun lunch today and later this evening I’m doing something with Nick Cannon, Ingrid Hoffmann and SKYY Vodka. I don’t know who Nick Cannon is but my 13 year old “has heard the name”. I don’t know who Ingrid Hoffman is but I like anyone who smiles and holds a cocktail.

I can’t stop thinking about the 140 Conference. I took so much great stuff away from it, but it’s not what you’d expect. Yes, I was in a room with all the stars of Social Media. Yes, I was on a panel with two remarkable …
