This is What’s Wrong With Politics

I received this email this morning. Subject: ..... Name: Maximillian Steel Email: Message: You are a mindless automaton who has the audacity to call others lemmings when you support the epitome of lemmings, the GOP. So I assume you are a rich person if you are voting for the rich man's party, If not than your even dumber than I expected. It must be hard

Creating a Bestseller

I'm glad I didn't see this infographic on successful books before I started writing. It's nice to see the stats of what sells when it comes to books but I don't think a book should be written because it will sell. A book should be written because it needs to be written. The story needs to be told. If it's a good story the audience

Minnesota Nice

After at least 15 bazillion titles I have finally settled on Minnesota Nice as the title of my memoir. According to Wikipedia Minnesota Nice is: the stereotypical behavior of people born and raised in Minnesota, to be courteous, reserved, and mild-mannered. The cultural characteristics of Minnesota nice include a polite friendliness, an aversion to confrontation, a tendency toward understatement, a disinclination to make a fuss or stand out,

Election 2012 Words and Phrases I Never Want to Hear Again

I can't wait until the 2012 election is over. Now don't get me wrong, I've loved all the name calling and bickering on Newsvine and have even participated in a smackdown or two, for that the election has been entertaining. And really, isn't politics like sports now? It's not as if either of the candidates will actually accomplish anything anymore. I'm looking forward to the

Freedom According to Thomas Jefferson and me

I'm no political wiz but today was a sad day. I don't begin to judge the wisdom of the Supreme Court, from what I have heard they did what they should have done. My issue is that our freedom and liberty is slowly being chipped away by our own government. Never a good thing. I would love to have affordable health care for everyone but

Mobile Apps for Summer Road Trips

I really just needed to get that post off the front page and update this blog. I don't have any road trips planned this summer but if I did I am sure I would find this infographic about mobile apps for summer travel really useful. *would someone shoot me now? This isn't even a paid post! I just can't think of anything interesting to write.

American Exceptionalism

Last week Bill Maher made a statement on his online portion of his HBO show lamenting American Exceptionalism. Question: Would it be better if the country just got over this notion of American exceptionalism? Bill Maher, HBO: Oh, I think it would. This is one reason why I say, and people laugh at me, but I always say in a hundred years this country will

Mommy Wars 2012: The Choices Women Make

Hillary Rosen made a statement this week that has fired up the mommy wars all over again. Rosen said that Ann Romney could not understand the struggles of women in the sluggish workforce because she "never worked a day in her life" as a stay-at-home mother. Before this week I'd never heard of Hillary Rosen and I am sure most of you hadn't either. Rosen was

Is Macaroni and Cheese the New Cupcake? And Does That Mean The Economy is on the Upswing?

Remember when cupcakes appeared on the scene? Suddenly cupcakes were everywhere. Stores opened up on the street selling just cupcakes (wtf?!) and reality shows were produced on a scale second to rednecks blowing up things on the History Channel. Cupcakes were everywhere. Pretty little things, too cute to eat. Cupcakes a great investment I attended an event for women entrepreneurs last year filled with nothing
