Last week, Amazon announced that Prime members will soon have free one-day shipping on most items.
Amazon decided to unveil the one-day shipping in an attempt to make the Prime membership more appealing. With other stores 'upping' their game in terms of delivery, Amazon needed step their game up.
Amazon has been testing out the one-day shipping on a few items this year, with more items being added within the last month. There is no word on when the shipping changes will become sitewide.
My Two Cents
I've been a Prime member for years and I love that they have the one-day shipping. It's actually available on a lot of the baby food my son eats.
If you are a mom, you definitely need to look into Amazon Prime. Prime will definitely save you a lot of aggravation.

In Florida on Easter Sunday, everybunny was kung foo fighting...
Okay, maybe not everybunny, but the one in this story was.
A person in a bunny suit hopped to a female's defense after she became involved in an altercation with a male. The bunny jumped in, piled itself on top of the altercation, and worked like an energizer bunny to break up the fight.
Turns out, no one was arrested in the brawl. However, it was later found out that the bunny has a criminal record and is currently wanted by police.
(I wanted to post the video footage, but it looks like it has been removed from the internet)
It's no secret that Roseanne Barr has been having a rough time lately. She was fired off of her show "Roseanne" over a year ago, and people always have something to say about her.
Well, here's some more wood for the fire!
On Sunday, Barr, 66, made a YouTube video (which has since been taken down), where she may have actually 'come out' as queer.
The bulk of the video was her talking about her disdain for the word "f-g." Afterward, she took a long pause, and then said this:
"Especially when it’s, like, one gay calling another gay guy that. Hooo, have you ever been in the middle of one of them hate marriages? It’s like, ‘Wait a minute, we’re not supposed to say that word. How come you’re saying that word?’ … But it is a hateful word and you should get rid of it. Get rid of it being spoken. All that LGBTQ stuff, I put the ‘Q’ in LGBTQ, OK? ‘Cause I am queer as two mother–kers. I’m queer. I’m alien. I don’t belong here with all these people. They make no sense. They are very queer. And that makes me … a queer, I guess?"
This has led people to wonder if she 'came out' as queer, or if she was using the word in a different fashion (for all you youngins, in the past, people used the word "queer" to describe something peculiar).
My Two Cents
If Roseanne is, in fact, trying to 'come out,' I encourage her to live her truth. If she is using the word to describe herself as "peculiar," she needs to clarify that for the younger generations.
Pink is one of the most well-loved music performers in the world. She has hit after hit. However, her biggest hits happened to be her 2 beautiful children. You can tell she is a loving and devoted mom, based on the pics she has posted in the past.
Sadly, we won't be able to enjoy seeing her two kids grow up, as she will no longer share their pics on social media. The reason being is because she received a plethora of criticism over one pic.
Pink and her family went to a beach resort and her kids were feeding a pelican. Her son removed his swim diaper and was naked. After posting the uncensored pic, she received a lot of criticism. This prompted her to remove the pic and post a censored version. Pink still received a ton of criticism. Many critics slammed her for circumcising her son. Pink did sound off on everyone criticizing her, saying:
"There’s something seriously wrong with a lot of you out there. Going off about my baby’s penis? About circumcision??? Are you for real? As any normal mother at the beach, I didn’t even notice he took off his swim diaper. And the negativity that you bring to other people’s lives. There is something seriously wrong with a lot of you out there. Smfh. Here’s a picture of the pelican we obviously caught and abused for hours before dangling baby penis in its face."
Pink sat down with Ellen Degeneres recently and said it was a nasty experience, one that has led her to abstain from posting pics of her kids on social media. She now keeps her family and children off all aspects of social media.
She told Ellen during the interview that people wanted to call social services on her because her son wasn't wearing a diaper.
My Two Cents
I completely agree and side with Pink on this one. She didn't know her son pulled his swim trunks off. Also, I'm sure many parents out there have kids that used to remove their clothing and run around nude and giggle. It happens. Also, to go off on a young child's private area and talk about circumcisions, that's just plain rude. Some people get their boys circumcised for religious reasons. Some do it because their are health benefits. Regardless of the reason, it is no one's business.
I stopped sharing pics of my 11 month old son back in January because I had people saying horrible things about my son (mainly because I'm a single mom, unmarried, and my son's father left me a month after I found out I was pregnant). Some even threatened physical harm against the two of us. It's devastating because I am so incredibly proud of my son, and I want to show him off to the world.
It breaks my heart that there are sick people out there that have nothing better to do than to bully kids, bully moms, and say just horrible things to people they don't know.
I wish we were leaving our children with a better world to grow up in.
Dawson's Creek alum Michelle Williams and Phil Elversum have ended their relationship. The pair had secretly married last summer in front of a small group of people, which included William's daughter Matilda, and Elversum's daughter.
Williams recently sat down with Vanity Fair and said that after Heath Ledger passed away in 2008, she never gave up on love. She even told her daughter:
"Your dad loved me before anybody thought I was talented, or pretty, or had nice clothes. Don’t settle. Don’t settle for something that feels like a prison, or is hard, or hurts you. If it doesn’t feel like love, it’s not love."
Williams and Elverum split up early this year and remain close friends. The reason behind the split has not been revealed.
Coachella is one of the biggest festivals in the world, and everyone who is anyone goes to Coachella.
Lisa Rinna went to Coachella with fellow 'Housewives' stars Kyle Richards and Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave, and the response from fans was not positive. Many lashed out at the women for being "too old" to be at Coachella.
Lisa Rinna, God bless her (and I absolutely LOVE her btw), clapped back at the ageism, saying:
"I got paid to go for Amazon — I’m usually there — but I got a check, honey! Honey, I made serious bank by going. F— you guys, I made serious bank! F— the trolls, f— you, trolls! I’m not kidding… I made a f— fortune."
On 'Watch What Happens Live,' Rinna told Andy Cohen that she was also there with her daughters Delilah (20) and Amelia (17), and that she's been going with her girls for the last 6 years.
My Two Cents
Since when do music festivals have an age limit? All of you who slammed Lisa Rinna for being "too old" can only hope and dream that you look as good as her at 55 years young. Or, is your saltiness due to the fact that she got paid to rock out with her favorite people, and you didn't?
Lisa Rinna, go 'head gurl! Slaaayyy!
Singer/Actress Jana Kramer is getting slammed for comments she made about hiring nannies.
Basically, Kramer said on her podcast that she refuses to hire nannies who are attractive. Kramer then slammed any woman who has ever hired an attractive nanny for their child, and even said that women are "playing with fire."
Kramer talked about how she went on care.com and scoffed at the young women on there, saying they will never be a nanny because of how they look.
It is no secret that Jana Kramer has been through a lot in her marriage. Her husband, Mike Caussin, has been struggling with sex addiction. He even committed adultery in their marriage. Kramer opened up about the addiction recently, and on her podcast she said
"Not that I don’t trust my husband… I just think it’s not smart. I mean, you look at some of these nannies, and I’m like, ‘Well, you kinda asked for it, she’s kinda hot.’ You know what I mean? You’re in close quarters."
Many slammed her for discrimination.
My Two Cents
Jana, babygirl, you are hiring a nanny for your child, not your husband. Hire the one who has the best qualifications, regardless of what they look like. If your cheating husband can't keep it in his pants, divorce him! Keeping a cheater around is only telling him it is okay to keep cheating. That says more about YOU than it does about HIM. He knows how to manipulate you, and you let him.
You know, I used to be a fan of yours. After this, you've lost all my respect. You are one of the most insecure females on this planet!
Attractive females are NOT the problem in this world. Men like your husband are. Women like you who enable his behavior are also a problem.
Actress Katie Holmes, who rose to fame as girl-next-door Joey Potter on Dawson's Creek, has decided to break from Hollywood (for now) and pursue other interests. What people do not know about Katie Holmes, is that she has a beauty business. It's been in operation for some time now, but it has grown bigger than she expected. Holmes, 40, wants to focus on her business. Her growing beauty business includes a skincare line, Elliesse Serum (anti-aging).
The anti-aging serum was sold out within 10 mins following its launch. Holmes created the serum as an alternative option to plastic surgery.
Along with focusing on her popular beauty business, she is 100% focused on her family, especially her 13-year-old daughter Suri Cruise.
My Two Cents
I will buy anything she develops. She is always so well put together and she always wears her makeup the correct way. Also, I'm a little over 3 years younger than her. I'd like to start using Elliesse so I can look like her at 40!
After suffering a cancellation, and then coming back from the dead, beloved comedy series Last Man Standing has been renewed for an 8th season! The news broke on Thursday afternoon, and it was to the delight of millions of fans.
The move from ABC to FOX proved to be a lucrative one for the series, which was halted in recent years due to pro-Trump content. The TV show saw record numbers in viewership on FOX, and looks to be more popular than ever.
Last Man Standing airs Fridays on FOX. This week, the TV show will reach a milestone 150 episodes!
Congrats to Tim "The Tool Man turned Outdoor Man" Allen, and the rest of the cast! I have been a fan of the show since its debut (and a fan of Tim Allen's since the premiere of Home Improvement).

With Chitika shutting down at the end of the month, many are wondering what ad revenue sites they can use in order to make money off of their sites. Some you may have heard from, others, not so much.
This is the most popular ad revenue sites that many online businesses, bloggers, and vloggers use to make money. While Adsense is the most reputable site to use, it is also the hardest to get approval for. The process can sometimes take months. My first blog site, which is still active, took 3 months to get approved. Adsense offers a minimum $100 threshold. If your site generates a lot of visitors, this is an easy threshold to meet.
CJ (Commission Junction)
One of my fellow web writers/close friends told me about this site yesterday. She seems to love it and I trust her. This is an easy sign up, but you have to wait a while to get approval from advertisers. The minimum cashout threshold is $100.
I have been using LinkShare for years and I love it. The application process is easy, and you also have to wait to be approved by advertisers. With LinkShare, you often get private offers from various advertisers. You do have to be careful with some of the ads, as they are generated for a limited time (holidays, specials, etc).
The same friend that recommended CJ also recommended ShareASale. The application process is not that hard, but you have to wait to be approved. The wait is not as long as the one for AdSense, however. I'm still waiting on approval (I applied yesterday so it will be a wait). I will be writing a separate piece on this ad revenue site once I am approved.
