In which I out myself

Guess what? I was involved in a super-secret start-up project. I didn't tease my readers by mentioning it in that hinting around, cryptic, I-can't-tell-you-right-now way because I refuse to leave my readers hanging like that. I like both of you too much.

Also, I'm mature.

(It would be really sad if I weren't, considering that our Wii Fit tells me I'm 63 years old.)

So anyway,

drumroll ...

I've become a Contributing Editor at BlogHer. I'm going to be getting paid. To review. Cosmetics.

I KNOW. What could be more perfect? I mean, I blather away about that kind of thing for free! But now I'm part of a site called Beauty Hacks, so forget it. No more free touting of products I love. Now they're going to have to give me big bucks and free supplies before I mention how much I love Estee Lauder Cyber White SPF50 sunblock and Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer #3 mixed with Estee Lauder DayWear Plus Tinted Moisturizer.

So anyway, my first post went up yesterday afternoon.

Please head over there and read it. And leave a comment.

Especially if the BlogHer community doesn't understand my wry sense of humor and thinks that my kids are actually going to spend their lives flipping burgers at McDonald's because I'm spending all of their college tuition money on cosmetics.

I need you guys to get my back. Because you guys know better. You know I'm just kidding. You know I'm spending their college tuition money on earrings. And shoes. And scarves.


  1. Congrats on your new blogging gig! Don't forget the rest of us when you become rich and famous.

  2. Congratulations! Man, I could use some make-up advice. Are the person I should be talking to?

  3. Yes indeedly doodly. Ask anyone. Well--ask blackbird.

  4. Wow, congratulations! Who wouldn't be thrilled about free stuff?

  5. Dude! Congrats! I guess this means you won't be updating your OTHER beauty blog. Since no one is PAYING you for that one, and all.

  6. Cool beans! That sounds like a good gig for you, and you know - getting PAID for it and all.

  7. BlogHer is lucky to have you. They should pay you in free products with a healthy side of cash.

  8. You GO girl!

    Hey. Why am I still here? I should be reading your post over at your paid gig.

    Bye! :)

  9. What kind of mother are you?? College tuition on cosmetics, earrings, shoes and scarves??? Shame on you. Coats and handbags are much better. And rugs.
