UPDATE: Learn the secrets of the big blogs (Feministing panelist added)

Update: We are happy to have Samhita Mukhopadhyay, editor, Feministing, joining us for Sunday's podcast. Thanks again to Latoya, Jill and Samhita for agreeing to share their knowledge with us.


In last week's episode of "The Best of What Tami Said," during the discussion about WOC bloggers in the femisphere, some of us wondered how to make the contacts, drive the traffic, develop the community, build the stature and reap the offline goodies most associated with owners of "the big, feminist blogs." At 4 p.m. EST, this Sunday, March 8, on a special edition of my biweekly podcast, we'll discover how.

I'll be joined by Latoya Peterson, editor of New Demographic's Racialicious blog, and Jill Miller Zimon of Writes Like She Talks, Political Voices of Women and Blogher. They have graciously agreed to share their knowledge gained as editors, bloggers and contributors to some of the Web's high-profile blogs.

Listen live and join the chat room here.

Call in with your questions or advice at (646) 716-4672.

I'd like to share some questions with Latoya and Jill pre-podcast. Let me know what you'd like to know in this thread. And please share details of this podcast with other bloggers you know. This is a chance to share knowledge and have your burning blogging questions answered.

Old School Friday: Songs with "heart"

This week's Old School Friday theme is "Songs with 'heart.'" Hmmm...that's a toughy. I'll serve up three:

The Cowboy Junkies' "Sweet Jane," a sort-a remake of the Velvet Underground tune. Yeah, I know, the word "heart" is nowhere in the song's title, but it does feature the immortal line: "Anyone who ever had a heart wouldn't turn around and break it."

Oh, and here are the wonderful Wilson sisters of the band Heart doing an acoustic version of "Alone." I love the acoustic version the best:

Lastly, the best scene from the film, "The Five Heartbeats." The performance of "A Heart is a House for Love." God, I love this movie!
