BlogHer Recap: Growing your blog, kissing Piper and talking Scandal with Kerry Washington

I’ve sat down to write this post a few times, but there’s so much to say I’m honestly not sure where to begin. My journalism self demands: Get to the point!

Anyway, each year a committee selects posts to be recognized as one of the Voices of The Year and a handful the honoreees read their post at the … Read more ...
