This morning I was DE-LIGHTED to see BabySteals.com offering the fantabulous, super-awesome, life saving, colic soothing Miracle Blanket for $15. I pounced on that bad boy and ordered one right away.

I promise. I just want to get some things down before I forget them next year, mainly for myself, but also for those of you thinking about making Blogher 2011 your first blogging conference. (It will be in San Diego!) 1. Build in time to do sight seeing in addition to the days you’re spending […]
