Thanks for visiting ABDPBT via Twitter, and welcome to ABDPBT! My name is Anna and I like to blog. As you’ve just discovered, you can follow me on Twitter at @abdpbt.
ABDPBT is where I talk about being a wife, a mother, a recovering academic, a popular culture enthusiast, and lots of other interesting things. I’m 36 and I live in Los Angeles, and have been married to my husband, Mr. Right-Click, for a little over three years. We met on match.com and if you’re interested in reading about crazy online dating experiences, then you have come to the right place. Mr. Right-Click and I have one son, “Mini,” who was born in 2007. You can find other essential facts about me on my about page.
If you’re curious about what ABDPBT is all about, a good place to start is with some of my more popular posts from the past year or so of my blogging career. My favorites include:
- On the Sex and the City-ification of Motherhood
- Vlogging Is For Suckers, Suckers Like Me
- On Truth
- 18 Tweets You Might See, If Shakespeare Used Twitter
- 18 Tweets You Might See, If Freud Used Twitter
- An Open Letter to the Writing Staff of Heroes
- 12 Ideas Motrin Ditched Before They Greenlighted the BabyWearing Ad
Probably the most popular feature of my blog is called Listless Mondays. Each Monday, I post a random list: usually it is funny, but sometimes it’s just bizarre. You can join in the fun by posting your own list on your blog and I will link you up here! To participate, just write your list, and swing by ABDPBT next Monday so I can link you up.
You will notice that the topics on ABDPBT are pretty varied. Readers enjoy stories about my family, but they also enjoy the fiction that I write on occasion. You might also want to check out my philosophical musings on whatever recent tv episodes I’ve been watching. The series about my wacky friend, Tanya, is a great escape from the daily grind, and I always shape the other stories featured on Fact or Fiction Friday with the hope that they will make you laugh, or at least make you wonder. Also, don’t forget about my personal finance blog, ABDPBT Personal Finance, which started out as just a regular old personal finance blog, but now covers everything you ever wanted to know and more about the business of mommyblogging.
Also be sure to check out ABDPBT Commodity Fetishism to hear about all the products I’m currently loving or coveting — all of it is just my opinion, so don’t worry about sponsored posts. And if you need some help with the technical aspects of running your blog, join me at ABDPBT Tech for plain-language explanations of blogging and programing basics.
Thanks for visiting my twitter landing page. Please have a look around. Also, if you’ve not already taken care of it, don’t forget to follow me on Twitter, where some of my most brilliant societal observations are routinely made. No, really.
