What Can I Say? I've Got a Face Made for Radio...

I appeared on's "House Talk" program, hosted by the beautiful and talented Dawn Lane of Las Vegas. Mr. Wright spoke during the first hour of the two-hour show, and I chatted with Dawn for the last 30 minutes. THIRTY MINUTES?! With no prepared talking points and no clear idea what we were going to discuss, I was freaking out.

Some people, when nervous, clam up. Not me.

Oh, no.

I get talkative. I ramble. I speak incrediblyrapidlyanddon'tstoptotakeabreath.

I talked about the parental blogging community. I talked about I talked about Gonzo Parenting Zine. I talked about the importance of sharing our parenting experiences with one another and encouraging each other. I just talked and talked and talked.

I'm hoping it came out okay, but I won't get a chance to listen to it until the archive link is posted. Naturally, I will post the link here when I get it.

Mr. Wright was brilliant, by the way. Ditto for Miss Lane. She made my rambling make sense, and is an excellent host.

In the meantime, I will leave you with a link to my last radio appearance. In January, I had a spot on The Mommy-Muse is In: Empowering Your Journey into Motherhood. You can listen to it here. I come on somewhere in the last half of the show, but the beginning is totally worth listening to. It features Dr. Nichol Turner-Lee, talking about Diary of a Single Mom.

  1. I doubt that you were at a loss for words at any point Christina-Marie.

  2. Oh, that's never the problem.

    The problem is getting me to shut the heck up!
