Hinterland, Week Seven: How about a newsletter?

Hinterland, Week Seven: How about a newsletter?

This brief post is sponsored by a new idea that is actually an old idea.

I’m not sure how or when newsletters became cool again, but they are having a moment and I’m all for it. And last month, when I put together the resource list at the end of this post, I thought it might be fun to turn that list into a monthly newsletter of sorts.

Let’s just be honest with each other: this is mostly because deep down in my soul, I am still the person who wants to tell you about all of the things, … Continue reading


If you are looking at this site on its Internet home as opposed to your inbox or a feed reader, you may notice that the winds of change have blown once again. It’s everyone’s favorite time of year: the annual blog redesign!

I’ve been blogging for about 6 years. I’ve had more than 6 blogs. I’ve changed blogs as I’ve changed directions, which is to say I’ve changed blogs frequently. It sounds like a bad thing (and it is if you don’t like to annoy people/Google), but it really wasn’t. It was true to what my life looked like at … Continue reading

I need blogging more than blogging needs me.


There’s a great non-profit called Mocha Club, and awhile ago they ran a campaign around the slogan “I need Africa more than Africa needs me.” The intention was to point to the fact that the lessons a person receives from Africa are greater than the impact that one person will likely have on Africa itself.

I think I need to adopt a similar mantra for blogging.

It’s well-documented (or well-undocumented) that I haven’t had much to say in recent months. (Slash… year.) It’s for a variety of reasons. Mostly, it’s due to feeling like I can’t articulate the things … Continue reading

What I Love : February

It’s that time again! Here’s what I’m loving in February:

Welcome to Paris // This blog post will dramatically change the way you think about what matters and how to spend your time accordingly. All-time favorite from Seth Godin.

The Road That Changed Everything // Phenomenal video from charity: water.

Romero’s Prayer // Just a snippet from this stunning prayer: “We cannot do everything, and there is a sense of liberation in realizing that. This enables us to do something, and to do it very well. It may be incomplete, but it is a beginning, a step along the way, … Continue reading

What I Love : December

What I Love : December

Albino Reindeer

It used to be called the Inspired list. Now it lives on another page called What I Love. And I was going to keep it tucked away over there…but I love so many things too much to keep it hidden!

Here’s December’s roundup:

The Gift of Healing: One of the most special gifts you can give!

Dara Maclean: I know we already talked about this, but I’ve probably listened to the CD about a thousand times since then so it bears repeating. If you want music that will speak straight to your heart, you need … Continue reading

The Influence Network + Football for Normal Girls

The Influence Network + Football for Normal Girls


I am really, really, REALLY excited to tell you all that later this month I’ll be partnering with The Influence Network to teach a 1-hour online class on Understanding Football. Oh yes, this is happening.

Most of you know that I run an educational website for women called Football for Normal Girls. Some of you may have even gone over there for a visit! If you have, chances are good that you fit into one of the following categories:

1. You really love football and want to learn more about it.

2. You really hate football and just … Continue reading
