If You Got Some- You Gotta Give Some Back.

The only reason I’ve had any success in my life is because a woman has helped me. It started when I called the only person I’d ever met at CBC radio and asked her if I could do a “secret internship” for 2 months. She said yes. She let me in the back door every morning and she showed me …

The Rules to Staying Sane and Keeping Your Soul Intact Online

This might hurt a bit. I’m playing tough love coach here. You don’t have to…but I’m asking you to consider – considering these options to get you back on track of why you put your heart and soul online in the first place. Here we go!

The Hypocrisy of the Light Leaders.

I’m a hypocrite. Let’s start with that. I’m imperfect. I’m fucked up. I have righteous intentions about how one should behave to be a “good” person and then I go have a smoke. And I have beliefs that are important to me like ‘becoming vegan’ and then I eat pizza with cheese on it cause the kids are having it …

Shonky online business owners are like drug addicts (a guest post)

Hi, Emelia here. In my 7 years of posting weekly at TTBG not once have I invited a special guest post. Until now. I read this online and was so impressed with her compassion towards addiction and creative slamming of ‘Spiritual Capitalism’ I needed to get her message out further. I’m also really into women bigging each other up right now …

If all men could hear this….

For us to rise, you must fall. It’s the natural order of our system, to keep in balance, on the teeter-totter of the world.  And you won’t want to. Because things will be different. And that’s really scary.  But we promise you we will not hurt you. We will not rape you. We will not punish you. We want to …

White People Can Change the World

Yes. That title was click bait. But it’s true. I’ve had nothing to say this past week. There’s nothing a privileged white person can say right now. It hasn’t been my time to speak. I’ve been listening, learning, copying down messages that make me uncomfortable in my seat of power and if you are curious, I’m pasting them below. I’m …

People are Complicated

This morning, I was sitting in my car in a rainstorm checking the ole fb and this woman popped up. A hard working, not yet uber famous, but probably making a decent living musician. An inspiration to many of us out there busting it. Play it loud with headphones on. And then I found out she was a Trump supporter; active …

Judgements from the Quote Queen

I love me a good quote. I’ve got one pasted to the back of my bathroom mirror right now and it’s been there through three moves, for about a decade. So I’m committed. This being said, there are some royal bullshit quotes flying around the internet and today I’m taking the time to lay some opinions down. #1. “You can …

#blacklivesmatter #whitesarescared

I’ve been soaking up as much social media and essays and articles about #blacklivesmatter as I can. I want to be informed. I want to be useful. And then I read this: Malcolm X was approached by a white woman at a rally and she asked him “what can I do?” and he said “nothing” and turned back towards the …

Selfies And Other Fibs That Women Tell (an unsolicited rant)

*This was a rant I wrote that didn’t get the traction it deserved so I’m re-writing it. I’ve been seeing a lot of dissent on FB lately from women who are getting pissed off about being sold stories about money and dreams and  sparkles and they’re not buying it anymore. Tides are turning and it’s a fucking relief. People are …
