This book made me sad and angry, yet inspired and excited at the same time. Ryan Holiday’s book Trust Me, I’m Lying: Confessions of a Media Manipulator is as eye-opening as it is depressing. A journey through the world of digital media and what drives it – namely, as the title suggests, manipulation for the sake of greed – the book reveals how some of the biggest, most well-known and respected blogs on-line use to drive readership.

Last night my family and I went to one of our favorite restaurants. Normally we have an excellent meal without any kind of hassles or disappointments. But not last night. When we arrived there were only two other tables of people. Soon after we sat, another three tables filled up and soon after that, a table of 10 came in!

I used to want to write screenplays but I never imagined I could ever do it because I wasn’t born a writer. Writing doesn’t come easy for me. In fact, most of the time it’s PAINFUL and I ask myself, “Pam, why the heck are you trying to do this when it’s so hard?” But I realized that artists in general are people who have to “work” on their craft, whether it’s writing, painting or playing an instrument.
