Salutations…It’s my fancy way of saying hello.

Who can name the movie I just quoted?

While you are thinking about it or web searching (aka cheating), allow me to introduce myself. I’m Veronica and I have a fairly neglected blog called Viva la Feminista. But don’t let that fool ya, I’m a writing machine! haha…I contribute to Kenneth Cole’s AWEARNESS blog, Girl w/Pen and WIMN’s Voices. You might also recognize me as the woman holding a mic on page 3 of the current issue of Ms. magazine. I’m a mom blogger. Not mommy cause as a friend of mine says, “Only my daughter calls me mommy.” And really, my 6-year-old daughter calls me “mama”.

Thanks to Jill for inviting me over here for a summer guest blogging appearance. I’ve been reading Feministe since it’s infantcy, so it’s an honor to be asked to vacay over here for two weeks. I don’t have a plan on what to write on over here, so enjoy the blogging salad I’m about to throw at you.

But today I want to share with you a story about mom bloggers, swag and how we are using it for good.
