Weekend Roundup

Happy Friday everyone! I'm posting from Mom 2.0 Summit this morning, where I'm wearing my hats as a consultant (helping a client with their conference presence), blogger (I'll be speaking on the state of the blogging union), and author (Asha and my work was nominated for two Iris Awards!).
