Pure Genius

Dooce does it again.

I love to read Heather Armstrong's witty postings at, and often come across some of the hateful comments people leave on her blog. She may not be for everyone, but I just don't understand why people even take the time to leave nasty comments on a blog they profess to hate.

But Heather has taken these lemons and made some wicked lemonade. She's started a blog devoted entirely to the hate-mail she gets and has loaded it up with tons of ads. So, basically, she's actually making money off of all those comments and throwing it back in their face. Pure genius if you ask me.

It's called Monetizing the Hate and you can check it out by clicking here.*

*I do not support the sometimes harsh language on this site, but do think it's a great way to fight against the blog haters.


  1. dooce was the first blog I ever read regularly...she really does get some crazy hate that she is "cashing" in!

  2. How funny...another blogger posted the same topic yesterday! (Technical Support) I went to the site and it's really funny! I love her idea for the hate mail, great way to take something bad and turn it into a profit for herself!

  3. Dooce was one of the first blogs I ever read. What a great idea to profit from something so negative!

  4. Dooce was the first blog in my reader, I believe, and I just LOVE this!!!! LOVE IT! So funny and clever. And I CANNOT BELIEVE that people take time to send her such HORRIBLE messages. Lame.

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
