About The Blog
YouShouldOnlyKnow.com is what I have referred to as “lunchtime blogging.” It’s about the crazy stuff that seems to only happen to me. My nutty family, the situations I find myself in, and the stuff that’s on my mind – including career issues, personal finance and what happened on the last episode of Bones or Castle that probably aired two weeks ago, but I’m just watching now.
You Should Only Know is also sometimes about etiquette. Essentially about doing the right thing. Whether the right thing is about how to handle a tricky situation with friends, or remembering to send a thank you card. It’s about being the adult you always thought you’d be.
But this isn’t your grandma’s guide to etiquette and manners – there’s no china pattern advice on this blog. It’s about all the stuff that you know you should be doing, or never thought you would be doing, and find yourself not knowing how to do it.
Sometimes I rant, and sometimes I share fun tips or ideas. And sometimes you write in with your own questions or suggestions – and then I answer them. And because my biggest pet peeve about online advice columns is that you can’t publicly disagree – I promise to allow all public disagreement (as long as that disagreement is polite, respectful and constructive. Barring that? It has to be really funny). I’m known for my tough love.
Are you looking for more posts about Marketing, Communications, or Social Media? You can find all of my musings on these topics, with 70% less Yiddish on Communications Breakdown, my “professional” blog.
P.S. I started You Should Only Know to share crazy stories about my family, and my love of Yiddish. Those are only somewhat related.
