Costco first date - good idea or not? No one ever asked me to go on a first date there, but I would have said yes. I wrote about it for +The Daily Meal. #costco #dating

Over at +Medium I wrote about why it's fine to criticize Kim Kardashian West's Trump White House meeting, but not fine to slut-shame her, and by extension, any woman who's ever posed nude (including me). If you like it, please share and/or clap for it. Also, to be transparent and, hopefully, encouraging: this piece was rejected three times. Twice very kindly by editors who encouraged me to pitch again, one of whom I've worked with before, one who was a cold pitch, and once by not hearing back within 24 hours. Next time I write an op-ed I may handle it differently because the time frame is so short before it's outdated, but I'm glad I wrote it when I had a 3 a.m. brainstorm. That's not a sustainable way of responding to the news, but if I'm going to have insomnia, I may as well put it to good use! #kimkardashian

I wrote about why I'm not going to BEA (Book Expo America, which starts today) over at +Medium, where you can follow me for almost daily new articles and essays. If you like this or my other Medium pieces, consider clapping for it (holding down the hands symbol at left from 1 to 50 times), which helps it get seen by more readers. Thanks for reading and if you're going to BEA, I hope you have an amazing time!

Great essay on giving up high heels and cultural standards of beauty for women by August McLaughlin!
I'm honored to have a piece in The Washington Post today, looking back on my experience with high heels: why I started wearing them, why I stopped and the biggest and most surprising takeaways from my #HeelFree experiment.
