I quit.

I don’t know if there’s a way to say this without being melodramatic or downright obnoxious, so I’m just going to say it…

I quit!

I quit blogging

That’s right. This is my last blog post. And that’s a picture of me as I write my last blog post.

Blogging is such a big part of my life (I’ve been doing it for 15 years!) that it took me months to come to this decision. It really came down to blogging not being an outlet that makes me happy any more. Sure, I love bits and pieces of it, but the expectations and competition dull the feelings of creativity and community that I once had and I don’t know if there’s a way to get them back. It’s like I’ve been running in a race that I don’t even care to win.

Don’t worry. You can still find me on Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat (👻CorrinFoster).

Thanks for 15 years of love. 💕

Disclaimer: I reserve the right to continue blogging like this never happened if/when the mood ever strikes again. 😘

I’m traveling today so I plan on finishing up The Nest. It took a good 100 pages to really take to the dysfunctional Plumb family, but I’m into it now.

Must Listen Podcasts

It wasn’t too long ago that I’d never listened to a podcast. I honestly thought they had their heyday in the 90s and were just internet relics.

Oh how my opinion has changed.

I’ve become a huge podcast nerd in the last year. To the point where I wish I spent more time commuting because I can’t keep up with everything I subscribe to.

Here are some of my must listen podcasts.

Are you a podcast fan? What are you listening to?

Must Listen Podcasts

This American Life is everyone’s favorite. I’ve been listening for at least 10 years.

Follow along with the Gilmore Guys as veteran fan Kevin T. Porter and newcomer Demi Adejuyigbe discuss my beloved Gilmore Girls episode by episode. I’m such a fan of these two that I even made it to a live show.

StoryCorps never fails to make me cry.

I can’t think of two brothers I’d rather take dubious advice from than Dear Hank & John.

Episodes 24-35 of You Must Remember This focus on Charles Manson’s Hollywood and are captivating.

Leandra Medine’s Monocycle is a breath of quirky, and often poignant, fresh air. It’s Man Repeller but better.

Here’s The Thing with Alec Baldwin is an absolute riot. Not surprisingly, he’s loud, pushy, and charming.

Death, Sex & Money always offers refreshingly honest conversation on topics that most people aren’t having conversations about.

Reply All is internet geek heaven.

Send in a “How do it…” question and they’ll answer it on How To Do Everything.

If you love the Modern Love essays in the New York Times, be sure to subscribe to the Modern Love podcast.

The Heart is hit or miss for me, but I give each episode a chance because when it’s good, it’s really good. Potential NSFW warning.

New York Magazine’s Sex Lives talks about everything you ever wanted to know about sex but were afraid to ask. Or Google. Or even think about too hard. I love how non-judgemental the hosts are and the experts they bring in to add facts and background. Definite NSFW warning.

If you’ve ever looked someone up and down and then called bullshit, then you’re giving them The Read. No one is hip-hop or pop culture is safe from hosts Kid Fury and Crissle.

Fries before guys. Call Your Girlfriend is a podcast for long distance besties.

Anna Faris Is Unqualified is just so damn sweet that you don’t care if she’s unqualified to talk about whatever she’s talking about.

Sampler fuels my podcast obsession by highlighting the best of the best in podcasts each week.

Book of the Week

I only made it a couple of chapters into Three-Martini Lunch by Suzanne Rindell (who also wrote The Other Typist) before being turned off by the Mad Men for publishing vibe. I’m planning on having a wild Friday night and stay up late reading The Nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney.
