Know Thyself, Thus Sayeth Buzzfeed

Why does anyone have a blog? Well, I suppose that I have one because I want to get to know myself better by writing out my feelings and experiences. I could have done this privately in a journal, but I have elected to tell my secrets to the largely anonymous masses because attention and approval […]

Meanwhile, Back On the Twitter…

No real post today. I’m working on a piece that may actually be published and trying to get Children’s Week on Tipsy Lit all put together. Whenever times like these come and I don’t have as much time as I usually do to write the highly important blog posts you have come to expect, I […]

Well, This Is Awkward: Pinterest Edition

When Cameron told me about Pinterest a hundred years ago, I checked it out. Surprise, surprise: I didn’t like it. Where the heck were all these pictures even coming from?

A Modern Day Parable of Optimism

I should read what they wrote. *Reads post. Feels dumb because overlooked it when first saw it in reader several days […]

Playing Nice in the Blogosphere

Last night I was reading one of my favorite blogs, which I don’t get around to visiting too often because it’s so good that I need to allot at least an hour to just to catch up. With 10,000+ active followers, it’s one of the big blogs where the comments are usually as funny and […]

Internet Abuse

I love blog posts where people list all the crazy search engine terms that lead people to their blogs. Fish just wrote a really good one the other day. I snorted with laughter when I read it. If you are in need of laughy snorts, you should read it too. For funsies, I decided to […]
