Thursday, October 31st, 2013

A lot has been learned this week:

Lesson 1: You shouldn’t put soap in your dishwasher when you run out of dishwasher detergent unless you’d like a bubble bath in your kitchen.

Lesson 2: The humidity from a kitchen bubble bath will turn your carved pumpkins into pumpkin soup. Science.

The pumpkins pictured above may have only lasted three days before completely decomposing, but not all is lost as the following Halloween posts from around the Blogads network are sure to ring in the holiday spirit:


Tom and Lorenzo showcase Lady Gaga’s outfit in London:

Every day is Halloween in the life of Gaga.

November 1st should be a national holiday to have off from work/school by now, right?

Shout out to Miley for being a top costume choice contender this Halloween. BTW, her real name is Destiny. I’m not sure that’s relevant, but I thought you should know.

Cute Overload celebrates Halloween with animals in costume:

Sir Lucifer Fluffypants wins my vote for best name/face/life.

This week, Gala Darling reported on Mercury Retrograde, which is when Mercury appears like it’s moving backwards, and the planetary shifting has interesting if not chaotic affects on us. Make sure to read up on Gala Darling’s survival guide for this, and judge for yourselves if you see a link between Mercury Retrograde and the following posts from around the Blogads network:


Betches Love This recap Pretty Little Liars’ Halloween episode:

Such faux pas may be attributed to the clouded thinking that comes with Mercury Retrograde. Luckily, it’ll be over soon on November 10th!

Bloggers aren’t ‘trained writers’ (thank God!)

by Henry Copeland
Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013

Martha Stewart, famous for her insider trading and trend-setting for the bourgeoisie, today took a whack at bloggers.

Who are these bloggers? They’re not trained editors and writers at Vogue magazine. I mean, there are bloggers writing recipes that aren’t tested, that aren’t necessarily very good or are copies of everything that really good editors have created and done. Bloggers create kind of a ‘popularity‘. But they are not the experts and we have to understand that.

Some bloggers are annoyed by Martha’s sneering.

I think Martha’s gotten at least one important think right. She’s right that many bloggers are not ‘trained writers.’ But she’s wrong that many bloggers are not experts. On the contrary, it’s the journalists who are not experts… they’re magpies, hopping from topic to topic as directed by their editors. Meanwhile, many bloggers are experts, writing daily about the same topic, a topic they’re passionate about, a topic they actuallyspecialize in for their day jobs. Which makes bloggers’ insights and questions far more important than those pushed out on deadline by the average dilettante journalist, trained or not.

Rather than comment on the poetry, let me comment on the poet, Greta Bellamacina. I like your hat, Greta.

Dear Wendy comments on how texting is affecting relationships:

But my questions is, what about Snap Chat?
