Saying 'Bye' to My Old Freelance Writing Website

A Throwback Thursday in Honor of My Former Online Presence 

I've had my personal freelance writer website for about two years now. It's been offline for many months, but I've finally gotten around to revamping it. I am paying for it, so might as well use it.

Looking for Quotes on the MTV Movie Awards

I have a few articles in progress about the MTV Movie Awards. (On right now--check it out!) I've decided to try out Survey Monkey, which has been recommended by several writers looking for a large selection of quotes. I'll post my findings tomorrow.

Meanwhile...If you caught the show, feel free to answer the questions on what you liked, loved or hated for a chance to be quoted in the article. (Yep, that was shameless.) The first five or six questions are for an article for YCN, that is likely to appear on Yahoo! Movies. The next two questions are for two separate articles for YCN News/Entertainment.

You can find the survey here

Feel free to share the link (, anyone can answer. Taking answers until Monday, noon EST. Thanks!
