Uninspired work is the worst kind

6 Comments 20 August 2012

Today I am to announce who won the “Everyone Loves Austin” t-shirt giveaway. I will do that later. Right now I don’t feel like writing at all. Not even that sentence. In fact, these past 8 days have proven difficult in writing emails let alone blog posts. Sometimes I don’t even finish sentences while talking. [...]

Does Blogging Make You Depressed?

31 Comments 26 July 2012

  I like following popular blogs. Not so much in that I find the material interesting (by the time I’ve found the blogs, the authors have already begun posting less than engaging material because they’ve reached a success that doesn’t demand time or quality), but because I’m intrigued with their lives as popular bloggers. Recently, [...]

When Sharing is Too Much: Tips on Healthy Self-Promotion

11 Comments 15 June 2012

Recently, The Austin Post was kind of enough to write a feature on me. It was very sweet of them considering I’m about as interesting as a ADD-tainted squirrel these days. In the comments someone bemoaned that I “brag too much about my connections” and “whine about turning 30″. I would be lying if I [...]

Most people and my raunchy self seem to like it, but the lady in me is saying, “What the fuck, Lauren? Do you seriously have to swear all the mother-fucking time?” My first post [...]

Help Me Pick Out A Title For My New Blog!

43 Comments 21 May 2012

Hipstercrite isn’t going anywhere. I will be chained to this mo-fo for the rest of my f’ing life. I decided to start a new blog though. One that I felt didn’t fit the confines of Hipstercrite. It is a neighborhood blog about East Austin. Sort of in the same vein as Fucked in Park Slope. [...]

38 Comments 20 March 2012

I’ve had Hipstercrite for over three years now. I’ve watched it go from 10 visits PER WEEK to 10 visits every five minutes. Though my traffic is not in the big leagues just yet, it still boggles my mind that as many people read it as they do. My blog was initially read by one [...]

How Social Media and Blogging Can Help You Get a Job

12 Comments 18 January 2012

As I’ve mentioned before, back in September, I went the freelance writer/social media marketing route. It’s been such a rewarding and educational experience. To do what I want to do, finally, for the first time in my adult life has been so incredible. Going freelance has given me the confidence in knowing that I’m capable [...]

Are Bloggers Journalists?

19 Comments 08 December 2011

Mashable featured an article today about Oregon blogger Crystal Cox who negatively blogged about The Obsidian Finance Group who in turn sued her for defamation. The blogger, who represented herself in court, lost the case. According to Oregon media laws she is not considered a journalist and therefor not protected. A large deciding factor in [...]
