Christmas in June! The Return of The Whore

Christmas in June: Return of The Whore- The Whore in the Drawer is coming out in the off season to share what she does the rest of the year.

As many of you know, each December I do an Instagram series called The Whore in the Drawer. It’s a lot of fun and seems to be pretty popular with all you maladjusted humans who follow along with my misadventures. The amazing thing is that now she will be joining me in the off season!…

15 Things I Thought on My First Day on Snapchat

15 Thoughts I Had on My First Day on Snapchat

According to all of the stuff I’ve read about Snapchap, I’m nearly a decade too old to be their demographic.  However, that doesn’t change the fact that everyone is using it.  I downloaded it once about a year ago and just stared at it, deeply confused.  I have since learned that I am not the…

Why Do You Blog?

Why Do You Blog?

Someone once asked my why I write.  Why do I blog?  Why do I submit things to websites that aren’t going to pay me?  Why do I follow along this tortuous path that is the ecstasy and misery of being a writer?  A writer for no money, no less? I write because I don’t know…

The Tax Break NO Blogger Gets

I get it, I really do.  If I were a company or PR firm, I’d do my best to get stuff for free.  Who wouldn’t?  But here’s the little secret: Bloggers work for free most of the time all on their own. We start these funny little online journals and pour our hearts out to…
