Calling All Writers

So I have an idea.

A lot of you that read this have a lot to say.

A few of my posts have generated some really interesting discussion in the comments sections.  (See here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here, and most recently, here.)

And since the blog's inception, I've received numerous emails from other women who are either leaving their jobs or wanting to leave their jobs or staying in their jobs or who are just pretty amazing people with interesting stories and good advice.

In any event, I love hearing about other people's experiences.  And if I do, wouldn't you?

I was thinking that once a week (or less frequently, depending on if anyone actually wants to do this), I'd feature someone else's story.  And that story could really be anything - how you've managed to balance work and family, how you've left the workforce and regret it/love it, how you completely regret/love your career, how kids change everything, how you find time for yourself, how you've faced life obstacles, how a particular partner you work for is the biggest jackass ever, etc.  Anything, really, as long as it's authentic, sincere, written without judgment, and preaching is kept to a minimum.  You can write anonymously, but I would ask that you not be anonymous to me (I can keep your name off if the post is published).  And if you have a blog, I can provide a link to it.

Anyway, this could be a completely stupid idea and I could get zero takers.  But I know at least some of you have something to say - let me know if you'd like to say it on here!

Email me at if you're interested.


  1. I think it is a great idea! Another blog that I follow does the same thing and I look forward to it every week!

  2. Thanks, Shannon!
    And also, I have realized that my post above is kind of sexist. I'd also welcome posts from men. Anyone want to bitch about the unwritten rules on paternity leave? :)
