    Word I Hate: Influencer

    A popularized word I absolutely hate was the topic of conversation today between a friend and I just had to talk about it here. Influencer. UGGGHHHH! I HATE THAT WORD. Not too long ago, I told a different friend I hated the word and she said, “Well, you better get over it because it’s not going anywhere!” I groaned, rolled my eyes and prayed to the gods of the crazy town people who insist on using it to describe themselves. During today’s conversation my friend said something SO ON POINT that explained exactly how I feel about the word and I had to share it with you because it’s brilliant.…

    An Independent Queen

    A Queen’s reign is a complicated, majestic monarchy best ruled by an independent empress. Or so I’ve decided as Queen of Words. 🙂 Actually, I just liked how regal and pretentious the first sentence sounded and it made me giggle to write it; plus I thought it would be a funny way to start this post.

    The Queen of Words

    I’ve been called the Queen of Words and it’s a moniker I’ve adopted with pride. I’m obsessed with words, communication and I’m totally high maintenance. So it’s a perfect fit. 🙂 My new plan (as I’ve done business as the Queen of Words in the past) was to host a podcast. I’m not sure that’s the way it’s going to work out. I’ve also thought about doing short videos and hosting them on a YouTube channel. That may not work out either. I’ll get more into that later. Maybe. As you can see, I’m a creative mess. Basically, I have a lot of ideas, a need for a creative outlet…
