Matchmaker, matchmaker, make me a match!
Before hiring your first matchmaker, make sure you understand the role of a matchmaker and the nature of matchmaking as a whole.

Please vote for my friend's artwork! Inspired by a recent trip to Japan, he submitted this piece to the  #startrek  design challenge. 6 days left to vote! Thanks :)
Ever since its inception in the 1960's, one of Star Trek's main themes was racism and prejudice, ranging from Spock's identity crisis and various life forms in the galaxy, through what was likely the first interracial kiss on prime-time television - shared by Kirk and Uhura. Inspired by the franchise promotion of acceptance and tolerance, I created a Ishihara-style Starfleet Color Perception Test.

Has this ever happened to you? You get an idea and it feels amazing. You get excited about it. You start making plans what to do next. And then… something goes wrong. You think, ‘This is never going to work’. ‘I’ve tried a similar idea before, what makes me think this time would be different?’ [...]

Did you know the average sugar baby earns $3000/month for their "sugar"? Read my recent feature on SingularCity to find out how SeekingArrangement founder Brandon Wade is redefining relationships. 
There’s a fine line between “sugar baby” and sex worker, but controversial dating website SeekingArrangement.com, does its best to explain the difference.

Does anyone know how to filter spam referral sources from Google Analytics? I get a lot of spam traffic to my sites and it's skewing my data. Thanks!

I just heard +Rand Fishkin say that setting up Google Authorship is no longer worth the effort in a +ProBlogger webinar today. So what's this group's take on the status of Authorship as it stands now?

Story
Tagline
Niki Payne is the founder of Loveball Media, a lifestyle management and consulting company based in Los Angeles.
Introduction
Hi there, my name is Niki Payne. I'm a woman of many trades, but my mission is the same regardless of what I do--I want to help people, and maybe even save a few lives along the way. I strive to be a source of inspiration and motivation in everything that I do. 

I'm a freelance writer and social media consultant based in Los Angeles. I produce content for newspapers, magazines and the Web, but mostly for the Web. I also produce content for business and marketing plans as well as for promotional materials. I work with authors, writers, entrepreneurs and small to medium-sized businesses in a variety of industries, including dating and relationships as well as lifestyle and entertainment. To learn more about me, visit my website at www.nikipayne.com.

Some of my hobbies include singing, songwriting, playing sports, reading books and watching movies. Writing is a given :)

Some of my biggest dreams include visiting Spain, pursuing a Master's degree, writing a few books and meeting Mr. Right.

My life goals include traveling the world, living out of a suitcase for a year and being able to work and write from any coffee shop across the globe with a stable Internet connection.
