How the Whole Family Can Survive Christmas and New Years at #DadChat

survive Christmas @DabneyPorte is co-hosting this week!

This week, WE helped create an “A Dad’s Point-of-View” column. The result was Tips and Thoughts on How to Survive Christmas, New Year’s, and the In-Laws. We shared our favorite tips for making the holidays less stressful and more joyful. I’m selected the best of so many and included them in the above-mentioned column. Dabney Porte co-hosted (DabneyPorte.com and socialmediagirlfriends.com). Also, everyone had the opportunity to get a FREE Kindle AND PDF version of my new book, The Empty-Nest Road Trip Blues: An Interactive Journal from A Dad’s Point-of-View. The offer is good until Christmas Eve. Read the transcript of what you missed and please join us ANY and EVERY Thursday from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. PT/9:00 – 10:00 ET.

My Interview with iJustine

Little did I know that when I attended a taping of The Ricki Lake Show with #FriendsOfRicki that I’d be seated next to the lovely iJustine. AND, little did I know it was HER when I did this interview. Where was my head? I’d actually seen @iJustine speak at BlogWorld LA but just didn’t put 2 and 2 together until AFTER I’d totally interrogated her! iJustine (Justine Ezarik) was such a fun sport though, and is everything ANY guy could dream of – so Ryan, get that ring, dude, before someone else beats you to it!
