I have committed to growing my Instagram account for Hot Mess Memoir now that I have Pinterest moving along nicely. But what I can’t get behind, are all of these women that post picture after picture of themselves. They always have the same pose, looking like they’re having the time of their lives. And who’s… Continue reading The Instagram Posing is Out of Control!
I’ve blogged about this on more than one occasion and that is, I need a blogging schedule. I don’t have one and I blog/do social media only when I have time. There is zero consistency and I absolutely hate it. I had a side hustle of making personalized Christmas gifts and because of that, my… Continue reading Free Printable Blogging Schedule
About a month ago, I showed up at work with this little nugget of a wine glass: No…I didn’t bring wine to work, I just wanted to show my co-workers my witty little cup I had made. My co-worker immediately ordered 3 of them. Then another co-worker caught word of my arts and crafts talent… Continue reading My Craft Room is a Sweat Shop
I don’t care if I sound like an old curmudgeon but we need to talk about the state of rap music. I wouldn’t even call this rap, as that takes talent. If I were to invent a new category of music, and trust me, it needs its own category, here is what I would call… Continue reading How Did Rap Become This Bad?
Seasonal Affective Disorder (or SAD) is a bitch; not gonna lie. I have depression already but then throw on an extra layer of SAD and you want to blow your brains out. Ok, I don’t want to blow my brains out. Perhaps the statement, blow my brains out, was inappropriate. Sorry. Anyway, I heard about… Continue reading Hygge and Fighting Seasonal Affective Disorder
I know…I know….I’m a real ass hole for suggesting a Monday to be “great”. Usually, I’d rate Monday’s between soul-sucking, all the way up to “meh”. But no, seriously, today was a great Monday! I Don’t Believe the Scales So I hit the scales in my bathroom. As every Monday goes, I disrobe, take off… Continue reading One Great Monday!
Ladies and gents I have an announcement to make. In about a week, I will officially launch a store section on my blog. Something I haven’t mentioned too often is I am a crafty mutha’ fucka’. I’ve sewn dresses, made jewelry and now making wonderful things for the house. Just in time for the holidays,… Continue reading Hot Mess Store
Look, I’m tired of coming across these phony blogs that post their income statement online. Or sometimes, they claim to make $10k in the first year of blogging. Didn’t your mamma teach you it’s not nice to discuss salary? Look, I’m not saying it isn’t possible. People have the chance to win the lottery but… Continue reading Stop Posting Blog Income Statements
I was going to name this post How to Gain Traffic with Mix but that would be super misleading because the truth is, I don’t know. Since Stumble Upon became Mix, I’ve probably lost about 50% of my traffic and it kills me. After working so hard for several years to build this blog, it’s… Continue reading I’m Learning How to Gain Traffic with Mix
