We're Not Scare-Mongering, This Is Really Happening

You know why we're awesome? I'll tell you. There is NO rhyme or reason to our posting habits, none whatsoever. Oh, we have a schedule. But we're so independant and hotheaded and drunk that we basically post when we want to post. Take me for example. I generally don't miss, but then there's days like today where I really have no time for this, and it's completely possible that this review will be completely half-assed. That's unfortunate for Problem Girl, or maybe it won't be. Who can really tell? At any rate, I think it's a passive-aggressive policy around here because we FORCE you to check every day for new content. Some days you're lucky, some days, you're not.

Consider yourself somewhat lucky today.

Problem Girl is a mom, and a wife, and loves Flight of the Conchords. At least, you seem to find all this out when you first glance at her blog. That's a lot going on, this woman probably needs a blog to sort it all out sometimes. She got a template hand-made for her, and while it's not horrendous, it's really light. I think it needs a splash of color, quite frankly.

The writing isn't bad, and quite frankly, I'm fascinated by the fact that she's going to be a surrogate mom. The sidebar is annoyingly long and cluttered, and quite frankly, I'd like to see the page length shortened as well. You can find the tip for rolling up menus below, and I'd urge a cleansing. I love the fact that she read Harry Potter, but didn't spoil it for everyone, because there were so many people (and believe me, I'd like to use a much naughtier word) who felt the need to ruin the fun. They will all burn in hell, because I say so.

So, what's the constructive criticism here? Well, it's a slice-o-life blog, and it's not really my thing. That being said, in terms of the quality of the writing and the subject matter, it's not horrendous. I would like to see more actual posts regarding your life and not YouTube videos, that's just lazy. I'd like to see the template brightened up. I'd like to see the sidebar shortened, and the number of posts on the main page lessened. I can't give it more than a star, but I'm in a generous mood and I have to get out of here, so you don't get any flaming fingers or other abuse.



  1. Phew! Not as bad as I though it would be! And in my defense, I don't usually have so many youtube videos up. I'm just shameless when it comes to FotC. Thanks for the review and I'll think about cleaning up the sidebar. I do love me some pointless widgets though.

  2. It's OK...that's all I can muster after the shitty 10 days I've endured...

    P.S. Feel free to crush on me again, as I'm fresh meat again...

  3. Me, always. Strip Uno: also fun. Particularly nasty meanings for the wild cards.

  4. You guys seemed to have died. Please say it ain't so!

  5. We're not dead. We take...sabbaticals...from time to time.

  6. Just wanted to let you all know that I'm OK if you heard about the bridge collapse in Minneapolis. Fortunately, I was no where near it, but did have one friend that experienced a near miss. I'll fer sure post my blog review next week as I'm obsessed with the news right now...

  7. I will be back this week, I just have been traveling my ass off this month (seriously, i spent ten days in the month of July at home in my own bed). It makes it hard for me to find the time to do a review...


Grow a pair.
