What's Your 'Orange Is the New Black' Bingewatch Plan?

It's breaking my heart, but I haven't yet watched the second season of Orange Is the New Black which dropped at this morning. All 13 new episodes are out there taunting me from the Netflix server. Friends who assumed I would have started already have been blowing up my phone asking something about Lindsay Lohan or warning me not to spoil it for them. I can hear Regina Spektor singing the theme song in a brain loop like a siren song, luring me to log in and press "play." I've got Orange Fever, and I've got it bad.  ...more
My plan is to watch whenever I can grab an hour away from the rest of life. I'm maybe half way ... more

Sweat dripping down my face, I pulled off my helmet and sat down on the ref bench next to Creepy Taco. Pinky Bruiser, Jet Blaster, Buster Chassis and Molly Misdemeanor were among those who waved their thanks and wished us a good holiday and left with shouts of, “Thanks, refs, see you next year!” ...more
You are awesome! more

Why I Commit Time to My Small, Personal Blog

I started my blog, www.only-mama.com, around a year and a half ago with hopes of going viral and making tons of money on ad revenue. I read something somewhere that said that you should wait to put ads on your blog until you have a lot of regular visitors, so I gave myself a year to build an audience. I still don't have enough regular readers to warrant adding ads to my blog. ...more
I'm like you, small blogs with few visitors, but I just can't keep myself from writing and ... more

Send in the Clones and Binge Watch Orphan Black

Season 2 of Orphan Black airs April 19th and you may be asking yourself, “Self, should I binge watch the first season so that I'm ready to tune in to Season 2, or should I let this series pass me by like I did (insert series everyone tells you to watch but you’re too far behind now to ever catch up)?” Well, we watched all 10 episodes of the first season in a couple of days last week and we have some thoughts. ...more

What's the Ideal Length of a Tweet? Shorter Than You Thought.

Buffer posted a roundup of the ideal length of anything you may write online: from headlines to blog posts.  Ideal length of a tweet? 100 characters. I know -- they want you to waste the other 40?  You can take those words over to Facebook where the ideal length is only 40 characters.  Luckily, the ideal blog post can take up to 7 minutes to read.  Wheeeeew, at least I can be wordy over in my personal space. ...more
I think the problem with using the entire 140 characters is lack of whitespace, which equals ... more

Jem and the Holograms Producers Want Suggestions? Get Women Involved!

Three men have asked for input in bringing the truly outrageous and badass Jem to the big screen. Jon Chu, Jason Blum and Scooter Braun don't want to steal your childhood, they say. They want to reinvent the 80s classic and cult favorite chick rock series for the digital age. They published an announcement this week soliciting input for casting and creative direction of the film, sort of like a Kickstarter for social media support and fan involvement instead of cash.  ...more
There's only one word for what those guys need: WOMEN! more
