The Internet & the Rise of the Introverts

Have you noticed that even though the world has become so connected with the Internet, almost incestuously so, it’s becoming lonelier? Sure social media and the Internet have made it much easier to reach out and touch someone…anyone. The thing is even with being able to connect with millions of people on a daily basis, we are able to experience solitude in a way that we never have before. It’s lik... »

Selfies, Sleeping Babies & the Decline of Civilization

Selfies, photos of babies and babies with pets have officially over saturated social media. I know this post will probably not get me any friends and I am honestly not trying to be an asshole. I am a sucker for a cute baby photo as much as the next person but honestly, is anyone else getting tired of seeing babies (other than their own) sleeping? I currently have over 100,000 photos that I have ta... »

Forgot My Phone & Remembered How to Live

Forgot My Phone & Remembered How to Live

Forgot my phone and realized that I am too dependent on it. I felt naked and awkward. I felt lost and unsure; insecure. I hide behind my phone. My phone has become a crutch, especially in my line of work. It has replaced my eyes, my ears, my brain, my voice, my memory and my attention. I have become so dependent on capturing everything that happens in my life for posterity that I am missing it in ... »

Exclusive Delivery Man Trailer Debut

Exclusive Delivery Man Trailer Debut

Vince Vaughn has a new film, Delivery Man, coming out on November 22, 2013 but today, I, along with 532 of my fellow bloggers, will be exclusively debuting the trailer not yet released. I’ve seen it and before I give you the synopsis, I need to tell you that I think this movie tells a wonderful story of the human situation. I’ve never seen Vince Vaughn play a more likable or endearing character. T... »

Tips,Tricks & People that Every Blogger Should Know

It’s Friday and I have been meeting a lot of new up and coming bloggers and it got me to thinking, I really wish someone would have written me a how to guide when I first started. Not on just the mechanics of how to blog but who to know and who to follow and who’s fun and what not; where to find good paid opportunities and places to write for and how to pitch. I had NO idea how to pitch a piece. P... »

What Every Blogger Should Know About Blogging

I wasn’t sure that I should write this piece about blogging practices because it will probably piss some people off. I’ve been blogging for 4 years and over the years, I have made some truly great friends; women who have virtually held me when I was having my greatest breakdowns, shown me the blogging ropes and commiserated with me when I had lost all control of my household, had no sleep and was ... »

    Are You Sure You Want to Send That SMS Text? The combination of sending an SMS text and motherhood is as tricky as mixing cranky toddlers and shark week.

Social Media Works; You have to be Engaged to Engage Others

Social Media ~ I have noticed lately that there are a lot of big brands and companies out there who obviously do not fully comprehend the breadth and width of the social media reach. They’ve not been given the  social media handbook ( because it doesn’t exist) or they didn’t read it, at the very least they don’t understand the etiquette. It takes practice to make perfect wh... »

Throat Punch Thursday ~ Intellectual Property Plagiarism: Sheisty Bastards Edition

Intellectual Property Plagiarism ~ This one is personal. You all know how I feel about being plagiarized. I think we can all agree that plagiarizing sucks. I’m not some Pulitzer prize winning writer, I talk about a lot of crazy off the wall shit and it’s not normally popular opinion or written in the usual rainbows and unicorns fashion, so when you plagiarize my intellectual property&#... »
