Xo Jane


I got to be in “xo Jane” magazine today.  http://www.xojane.com/sex/dating-for-hoarders  I haven’t really been published before.   So, thank you so much to people who liked my story and commented.  Thank you if you like my FB page for my blog, or tweet about it or subscribe to my blog (pretty, pretty, prettiest please).

And thank you for letting me talk about George.

And thank you to the lovely people who recognized my stunning Celine handbag.  Which George got for me for my 49th birthday.  Because he just really “got” fashion.

So, I am a Luddite.  Any ideas you have for promoting the xoJane article, please tell me.  I suck at this stuff. (Aside from soppily tweeting to my idol Anne Lamott).  And paying FB $70 “to do something.”

And please leave me comments if you want to.  All I get on this site is fucking spam!!!!!!!

    Hi there! No spam here! I loved reading you on xoJane and was moved by your story. I’m now following you on Bloglovin’ (which is creepy sounding I now realize?) and look forward to more of your posts (and handbags).

      Thank you so much. I checked out your blog and liked/followed on FB. The photography is fantastic! Now I must go out to buy vodka and tomato juice…

  • Ali A says:

    I found you on XOjane as well, and tons of commenters were leading others here to your blog because they must have seen some really great stuff. I loved your post today and am looking forward to delving into your site to read more of your work! If you write good posts, they’ll find a way to make it to others. But yes, sadly some social media shameless self-promoting is necessary, too 🙂

  • Debbie says:

    Ok, wordpress put up the wrong reply. We’ll try again. Did I mention I’m a Luddite? Your blog is wow sophisticated! I’m impressed you’re making Sheknows/ Blogher work for you…I did’t figure out much to do with promoting my own blog there.

  • Karen says:

    Loved your story. More than that I love your attitude and outlook on life. I’m sure it has taken time to get to this point and I’m sure it wasn’t easy, but the grace and maturity you show in your writing is amazing.

    Did you try Akismet plug-in for spam blocking? I got over 600 spam comments in one week on a random comic strip. The comments were all oddly related to cabinets and fixtures for bathrooms and kitchens; I guess home improvement is big in Russia.

    Congrats on the article too btw!

    • Debbie says:

      I’ll try that. I keep getting spam about soccer and gibberish spam about high end shopping. Thanks on the article. Btw, you’re really talented.

    Also here to say that I found you via XoJane, and I’m here to stay. I love your voice, your wittiness and yes – that dang celine handbag. George truly sounds like an absolute gem, and I wish you so much luck in all things!

  • Usually I don’t learn article on blogs, but I wish to say that this write-up very forced me to take a look at and do so! Your writing taste has been amazed me. Thank you, quite great post.
