Friday FUN -- and Fist Bumps

I've decided, on this new blog, I'm going to do "In the Blogosphere" posts every *other* week instead of *every* week, to allow for some fun -- and frivolity. After all, it is Friday and summer, for writing out loud

First, I want to give a couple of fist bumps to some awesome people.
You betta recognize! (Yes, this, sadly is my most badass face -- which is why I covered most of it!)
  • James River Writers.*  OK, so that's a slew of folks, but the whole organization is pretty amazing, and everyone I have ever met there has been super fab. Among them:
    • Kris Spisak, for working wonders every month, putting together fabulous "Writing Shows" -- and especially for being kind enough to have me sit on this month's panel
    • My fellow panelists, Web expert Frank Petroski & online platform and marketing consultant/Twitter guru Dan Blank, from whom I learned a lot last night
    • Bill Blume, our fantastic moderator/everyone's favorite Web cartoonist, who always makes Richmond a B-L-A-S-T
FUN (and Dorky)

Last week, I was Tweeting with Frankie Diane Mallis (another fist bump!) about the Spice Girls, which got me thinking of songs that might be embarrassing (or awesome?) to admit I loved (okay, love?) -- songs which need some resurrecting. During my two-hour ride home from Richmond last night, I rocked it out to this little gem, which I almost forgot existed:

Don't hate!

Any songs you'd like to resurrect? Even if you're pretty sure others will judge you for it? ;)

Happy Friday!!!!

*The JRW has just started a new blog to gear up for their October conference -- you should def go check it out.


  1. Okay I saw your tweets with Frankie--so, FIST BUMP. Yeah, BA-BY! (have a good weekend):-)

  2. Oh please. There are SO many songs I'd resurrect. Like a bazillion (ridiculous) 80s songs. And, hell (not that they've gone anywhere, but...) I still loves me some Britney. See I admit it. Guilty pleasure music is the most fun. :)

    Have a fun weekend...see you soon.

  3. Yay! Britney!! I knew I liked you! :)

  4. I can't believe I'm admitting this and it's not even a true "resurrection" but my biggest guilty pleasure song is "Party in the USA" by Miley Cyrus. I was bee-bopping to that song yesterday while I browsed around in Target. That is the ONLY song by her I can stomach.

  5. Confession time: I'm a recovering Barry Manilow junkie. I've dragged my poor husband to many of Manilow's concerts. Oh, and I love me some Neil Diamond too. See? Jenny on the Block isn't so bad at all!

  6. Wooo! I LOVE "Party in the USA" -- even though I wish I didn't. Heh. :)

    Barry & Neil aren't bad to admit -- are they??

    So fun to hear what everyone's listening to! :D

  7. I would resurrect anything from the eighties - all the one hit wonders.

    PS - your blog is FUN! So fist bump to that!

    Have a great weekend!

  8. A little "Jessie's Girl" anyone? ;) You too, A!

  9. Thanks so much - was great to be a part of the event with you!

  10. Ooh, here's one I'm not afraid to admit-a-ha's Take On Me. Coolest video EVER!!
