While not popular with fundamentalists, Jesus did have some views on being transgendered, and mostly likely homosexuality. Read it and weep, gay haters.

Like every parent, I worry. From the day my baby boy entered the world, I worried whether he slept enough, whether he ate enough, whether he ate too much. I worried about the typical—shouldn’t he be walking already?—and the ridiculous—should I be researching kindergartens? (I worry about his privacy, too,...

The introduction of Tidal was an insane spectacle, a tone-deaf exercise in royal self-congratulation. And it took no time at all for musicians to turn against the service.

It’s that time again. HBO’s Game Of Thrones comes back this weekend, and with it, millions of viewers are tuning in to be part of the experience. While we’re sure to get our share of action, twists, and intrigue, I often wish the show’s producers would occasionally use it to advance a positive so...

Famous & semi-famous people who have blocked me on #Twitter : Craig Ferguson, Kirstie Alley (Scientologist), hack "journalist" Glenn Greenwald, hack right-wing blogger Chuck C. Johnson, and hack "comedian" Julie Klausner. I am REALLY okay with that list. ETA: I should add that I have NO idea why Ferguson blocked me, so I've been assuming it's connected to his reputation for being hypersensitive, but it's not like I criticized him that I can remember--so it's entirely possible he hit the wrong button on his iPhone or something. But he IS known for being hypersensitive, so who knows?    #SocialMedia   #CrazyPeople #hacks

I feel like the Mila Kunis lawsuit provides only the slightest glimpse into the kind of insanity that celebrity causes in a person's life.

Let's get a few things out of the way. First of all, Goop is ridiculous, right? Gwyneth Paltrow's lifestyle empire is the pristine Fortress of Solitude for New York Times Style section superelites. It will make a chiffonade of your mockery and serve it back to you as garnish on a...

Mr. Obama’s decision on the sensitive issue is the latest example of his continuing embrace of gay rights.

Story

Blogger & Social Media Consultant
Introduction

I am a writer with eclectic taste who has loved writing since I was a small child. I have extensive experience with writing non-fiction, including marketing copy for blogs, marketing copy crafted into tweets, heavily researched editorials and media criticism for my own blog, how-to columns, product reviews, recipes and more. I write freelance expository articles and editorials for the web, most notably for Textbroker.comGather.com, and private clients.

I worked for a year as the primary public relations representative for a local entertainment company in upstate New York, ADHD Entertainment, LLC. This involved using multiple social media platforms to promote the brand and its artists; this included ghostwriting tweets. I have experience running PR & social media for a financial blog as well, and have recently re-connected with ADHD Entertainment to copyedit and help ghostwrite a series of memoirs, among other projects including some modeling.

I am a May 2008 college graduate and am already published across the web, and I am looking forward to expanding my writing career, particularly on the Internet. I love news and media and I make sure to pay attention and read all different styles of writing with an open mind. I run a community center for the children of Baby Boomers, known as Generation XYZ, which combines blogs, discount shopping, business opportunity, entertainment and non-profits. Through the Twitter account associated with this company, I have created social media buzz and helped raise funds for pre-eminent non-profit organizations such as Doctors without Borders (Médicins sans Frontières), Baby Buggy, and charity: water.

My Bachelor’s degree is a Bachelor of Arts in English with a concentration in Rhetoric (and a minor in Theatre) from Binghamton University. Follow me on Twitter @TheGrottoTweets.
