By Helena Bequette At the recent Democratic National Convention, a delegate got so excited during a speech that she held up her Medicare ID card. As soon as the cameras picked this up, her name and social security number were broadcast to millions of people. This information is enough to allow a thief to steal […]


This has been a crazy couple of months for me. I have gone back to school, tried to push through my shyness and social anxiety issues, and have dealt with a variety of life changes. And now, its time for another period in my life to be over. And that’s okay; times change. Today will […]

I’ve shared before that I love games. Computer games, board games, you name it, I probably enjoy it. Some games I love so much that I’m involved in communities that talk about games. Some of these communities are very generic; others focus on certain companies or even particular games. Usually in these communities are some […]


Going Viral

by Martina Wormuth on October 25, 2012

Viral videos are all the rage. I work with teenagers and one of the most common statements I hear is “Marti, have you seen the video about (insert topic here).” Some are hilarious, some are mildly inappropriate, and others are profoundly inspirational. If you’ve never heard the term “going viral,” it essentially means that a […]


The Holidays and the Internet

by Martina Wormuth

The internet wasn’t a part of my life as a kid. It didn’t really exist, other then dialup, which was just laugh worthy because you couldn’t do a whole heck of a lot with it. I did play some games and stuff, but most of the time was spent waiting and browsing the web. I […]

Where Do You Get Your News?

It’s no secret that I enjoy the internet. I regularly enjoy online gaming, I work from home, I do a variety of things that all require me to be online. I’m not sure what my life would be like without the web, really. I wouldn’t be able to keep in touch with some of my […]

Is the Election… funny?

by Martina Wormuth

I know, I keep talking about the elections, but only because that’s the big buzz on social media nowadays. I’ve made the decision as to who I’m voting for (but not going to tell in case people have a fit at me), and I don’t think anything could really change my mind at this point. […]

Tips on Getting Blog Traffic

by Martina Wormuth

I’ve been writing on my own blog for about 2 months now, and I have finally started to get a consistent flow of traffic. I get about 15-19 views a day, which equals about 100 to 135 views a week. Not bad for a startup, right? I’m shooting for 300 views a week (or 1000 […]

Music Streaming and Money Making

by Martina Wormuth

I absolutely love music. When I was younger, I was obsessed with music; I was in my school’s choir and every kind of band you could think of. I took music theory and thought I was going to go to college and become a music teacher. Needless to say, it’s been almost 10 years since I graduated […]

Social Shopping?

by Martina Wormuth

I’ll be the first to admit it; I love online shopping. Amazon is one of my most visited websites. I can look through all of the fun things that Amazon has to offer, and I also earn gift cards from this site in order to splurge on fun stuff every once in awhile. Online shopping […]
