I love weird stuff (surprise!). Or I should say different stuff. I remember these little novelty pens I used to have with Etch a Sketches on them or my mini Viewmaster keychain and Rubix Cube. I just like quirky fun stuff like that.

That's why John Maxwell's new clothes are so cool to me. I'll be honest, when I first saw that the shirt said Tesdenim, I didn't get it at all. But when you look in the mirror, as a boss, you will get it. So awesome.

I've read a lot of good books lately (I suppose it comes with the territory of being a book publisher), but one book that I recently had the pleasure of reading that was not a GenZ book was 'History of MMA From Rome to Today' by my friend Saleh Stevens. It's a very quick read, but really packs a punch (pun kind of intended). It's a beautiful and inspirational book about someone with a life quite different from my own that still manages to be a very relatable story. So check it out! #SalehStevens

Sunday Fun!

It's a beautiful Spring Sunday! How are you enjoying it?

When I have a free day, I like to read books (of course!) 

A new book to check out is definitely 'He Who Leads Gods.' It is an action-fantasy book that utilizes the 2nd person POV to draw the reader in and make the reader feel like he or she is the protagonist. It follows the Chief of the Akachi Clan, Amare, who is a young man trying to cope with tragedy while at the same time, performing his duties as the leader of the clan. He battles the Oceans, the Earth, the Skies, and the Sun itself, as well as Personal Demons to pave the way for his clan.

One of my favorite things in the whole world is neon colored lights. As you could imagine, I've always been a big fan of glowsticks and Christmas lights.

That's why when my friends at Oakleaf sent me some awesome lights, I was ecstatic. I hung them up right away, and they look AWESOME. They are on wire so I can move them around a bit and shine nice and bright. So perfect. What is your favorite unconventional item like this?

One of my favorite quotes ever comes from Sarah Jessica Parker, of all people, who said, "I like my money right where I can see it... hanging in my closet." Any fashionista can certainly relate to this sentiment.

The Importance of Copyediting Quality Content

Media is changing our language, and it is up to us to preserve it. Take it from me, a proud advocate of and for generation Z and young millennials. There are so many news reports and articles about how our language is changing “for the worse.” However, with a proactive approach, we can be sure that it progresses for the better. We can use new media to share our innovative ideas through carefully crafted words.


The internet has allowed many people who would have never written in a public forum to share their ideas with the masses. This means that we are connected with writers’ words from around the world. The very idea that I can read a guide about meditation by a writer from Africa, a paranormal romance book by an independent author residing in the UK, and an eBook about vampires by a young author in New York City (all books that I did read this week) is a truly magical idea that our ancestors could have never dreamed of. The ease of finding such varied topics written by authors of all nations is a great opportunity to create a smarter, more well-rounded, and more connected society. However, without properly curated content, this will not be possible.


My concern and the concern of many copyeditors is the ease of sending and receiving this information, which causes the quality of some content to decline. It is all too easy to publish a work with errors. I see many “they’re” and “their” mix-ups, incorrect adverb usage, and careless misspellings on a daily basis that could have been easily avoided with just a bit more time and attention to the work. I cite this as proof of how we must be more careful when crafting our content and why copyeditng is crucial.


Copyediting is more important than ever. Instead of information overload and saturation, if we put more thought into what was released, we would all benefit from the higher quality of content. Copyediting is a crucial step in the process of releasing the best content possible, and there are many talented copyeditors who are dedicated to working diligently on such content. Technology has afforded more people the opportunity to copyedit because of this increase in online materials and ease of connecting with others. I began freelance copyediting when I was still in high school. Each essay and article I copyedited varied in topic, and I would help the authors shape their works into something that would add societal value. When a work is free of errors, it appeals to the reader, unlike works with blatant errors that negate an author’s intentions.

The future of language is still evolving. As the Internet and technology develop, so will our communication. We must be more mindful of the information we release, as to preserve the English language. This means that copyediting is more important than ever. It is only through the thoughtfulness of copyediting that we can release our best work.

Free Cheese

One of my favorite quotes will always be, "There's always free cheese in a mouse trap." It's been used countless times in pop culture and is perfect advice in many facets of life.

That is why what my friends at Hog Wild for Wealth are doing is so important.

Riches or Ruin – Hogg Wild for Wealth, is a whimsical financial card game for ages 9+, consisting of 198 poker-sized playing cards and custom tuck box. This 4-level, pig-themed game can be played solitaire, or up to 6 players.  Players act as investors managing a portfolio of assets, such as real estate, stocks, bonds, and precious metals.  They must assess economic conditions, which change randomly during the game, before making buying and selling decisions in their quest to amass the most wealth. Although investing concepts are educational, anyone who has enjoyed Monopoly will appreciate the challenging play of portfolio management.

President Grant

Did you know...President Grant was the only president to die of cancer? Am I the only person who finds this extremely surprising?

Others are about me. Those come from my website which is linked directly to this blog.

You will also notice that the archives section is missing. However, you can now search for whatever topic you would like!

Have a great day! 


Does anyone else find the irony in the word 'non-hyphenated' unbelievably funny?
