the kind of week it’s been


And it’s only Tuesday.

In other words, kinda crazy around here.

In addition to our regularly scheduled production work on the May–June issue of the magazine, we’ve been in various stages of birthing Mothering Radio, an audio version of the mag, a mobile version of the web site, Mothering-topic-related phone apps, several new reprints of time-honored favorite articles, and more.

But it’s all good. Exciting times to be working here. Just gotta strap ourselves in for the ride . . .


Photo by Steve Steigman. You might be too young to remember Maxell’s “Chair Man” ad campaign, but this image was everywhere in the late 1970s and early 1980s. (The story behind the ad, created by the old Scali, McCabe, Sloves agency, is here.) Apparently, the “blow away guy” was brought back in 2005, this time to the world of online games. That story (along with some of the photographer’s tricks for achieving that “blown-away look” look), here.
