Confession

So I have to make a confession. And I'm just going to say it, because, there is no need to draw it out or beat around the bush. I like Taylor Swift. There I said. Feel's like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders! I'm a Swiftie. I haven't always been, there was a day I would not listen to her at all. During her country music phase. Because, well I hate country music. But now I am hooked!...more

Shake It Off

As it's the weekend I'm taking it easy (see what I did there?!) and will be spending the day with the paper, music and football. I can only really share one of those with you, so here goes........more

What Taylor Swift Teaches Us About How to Best Use Social Media

With a 12-year-old in the house, I want to be aware of how people are portraying themselves online. Soon, my daughter may want her own Instagram account. She hasn't requested it yet, but given many of her classmates are heading in that direction, no doubt we'll be facing her own account creation sometime during middle school. Who will she follow? What will she post? What examples are appropriate for her newsfeed? Following Taylor has helped me identify five characteristics about social media etiquette that I can reference for my tweens when the time is right. ...more

Post No. 5: Nicki Minaj vs Taylor Swift

I’ve been eye-raped, and it’s my own fault. In Post No. 3, I mentioned being proud of not knowing any Minaj tunes.   After a few more headlines with her complaints about “a little funny business goin’ on” because Anaconda was not nominated for Video of the Year, I decided to see what she and Anaconda are all about....more

Why Isn't There a Brown Version of Taylor Swift?

In my opinion, there is no one who can hate on Taylor Swift (though Kanye definitely tried). She is young, fresh, fun and one of the only younger female artists who didn't originate from the Disney Channel or Nickelodeon.

Taylor Swift ain't got nothing on me!

Melissa Logsdon: Actress/Comedy Writer...Songwriter? Taylor Swift is a songwriter and a good enough songwriter I suppose, but most of the songs she writes focuses on the young and/or hipster-like people. Give her like 20 yrs. and she will be singing to a different tune I'm sure. In fact, I'm working on a song for her for when that time comes. Believe me, it will be here a lot sooner than she thinks! The song is called 'Feels Like 42', it's not done yet but I will share with you what I have so far: 'Feels Like 42' by Melissa Logsdon ...more
