ANNOUNCEMENTS

What started as a Facebook trend, the urge to broadcast “25 Random things about me,” no matter how personal or obscure, funny or completely banal, is sweeping the nation. As Salon.com puts it “latest annoying Facebook trend might be one of the most inspiring Web crazes in years.” In her latest post (found at www.newchristianvoices.com), “Bad Mom” Caron Guillo has identified 25 things that make her feel like a bad mom and calls on others to follow suit. “The rules are simple,” says Caron. “Make a list of 25 random things that make you worry you’re a bad mom. They don’t have to be reasonable. In fact, it’s better if they’re not.”
