Hollaback’s Greatest Hits

by Rachel on October 8, 2011 · 4 comments

I’m very proud of all we’ve done so far on Hollaback Health and two days before our new “season” kicked off, I got some very exciting news — Hollaback was nominated for a Best Blogger Award from Shape Magazine! If you’re feeling generous today, you can vote for us. I’m so proud of all the posts […]

How do we start blogging after four months without blogging about blogging? I think it’s time for a good, old-fashioned “What I Learned on My Summer Vacation” essay! If there’s one topic on a lot of bloggers’ minds right now, it’s Get Off My Internets, a site that isn’t new, but is new to many […]

Whether it’s a condiment or an app, I love talking about stuff on my blog. Buying and trying lots of stuff so you don’t have to is part of what my blog is all about. Realizing this, companies want me to talk about their stuff. I get lots of e-mails from bubbly PR girls telling […]

Grammar Grabs: Wielding the Red Pen

by Rachel on January 26, 2011 · 7 comments

We talk a lot about good grammar and about good commenting, but I got a comment on my blog the other day that brought up a good point: how to comment on a blog that features a lot of bad grammar. It was on my post about how to start a blog. The comment said: […]

The Theory of Evolution

by Rachel on January 9, 2011 · 5 comments

When I’m coaching bloggers, we often talk a lot about branding. New bloggers are all about it (which is awesome!), but it also scares them. They are afraid to make choices for their blog now — content, header, images, etc. — because they want to be sure before they are “stuck with something forever.” Meanwhile, […]

I rely heavily on Google Reader to help me read all the blogs I love. I have them neatly organized by category — health! decor! weddings! (don’t judge me!!!) — and can read them at my convenience. I usually read them on my phone and love not having to go to the Web every time […]

You Say You Want a Resolution

by Rachel on December 31, 2010 · 8 comments

On this, the last day of 2010, my Google Reader is filled with recaps and resolutions. While many bloggers have been posting their resolutions to take yoga, start working out in the morning, and train for all sorts of athletic events, I find myself thinking…Why does it always have to be about being fit? Can’t […]

Pimp Your Blog

by Rachel on December 17, 2010 · 4 comments

Hey, all! As most of you know, few things get me more excited than talking about blogging. This is, of course, why I started Hollaback, a blog about blogging, and why I now work in social media. From just talking people to about why they need a blog to how to start one to turning […]

‘Tis the Season to Be Creative

by Rachel on November 15, 2010 · 15 comments

Now that I’ve had my blog for more than a year, I’ve started to face a new dilemma as the seasons change: what do I write about that I didn’t write about last year at this time? I’m even more aware of this now that the holidays are approaching. (And yes, I know that Christmas […]

When I was in college, living in my sorority house, I’d often hear my friends (or myself) complaining. “I don’t know if I should bring a Theta Chi or a Delt Sig to Formal…and I still need to lose three pounds so I can fit into my BCBG dress!” “I’m so torn between taking the […]
