Confessions of The Daily Sampler

I have a confession to make, and it pains me to say it. I’m not so sure about The Daily Sampler these days. Don’t be scared, it’s not what you think. I love my little project and am proud of how it’s grown in just a year, but I’m finding less and less interest in commenting on celebrity gossip and some of the other silliness of the entertainment world. I think that’s one reason I’ve had a bit of a block the last few weeks, especially after living through life and death situations. It’s just not as fun anymore to ruminate over whether or not Kim Kardashian has had more plastic surgery (she totally has, and it looks freaky.)

Don't be sad, Kim. We'll still analyze your face from time to time.

I had to get that off my chest. You may notice the direction of The Daily Sampler shifting in the near future, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous that you’ll follow me in whatever that direction ends up being. I like to write, and call me shallow, but I like to write about things that both you and I find interesting, engaging, and helpful. I want to take it in a more positive direction. But I’ll still sass you- so, things won’t be that different.

This also doesn’t mean I won’t ever write about entertainment. I’m going to write about entertainment tonight, so there ya have it. Already breaking promises.


Brian Williams Raps “Rapper’s Delight” (NBC YouTube) – I have been heartily enjoying the reboot of The Tonight Show, and I’m excited to tune in every night. Last night was no exception. Whether you’re sad about the women’s hockey loss today or just need to kickstart your weekend right, this is your link.

    I would look forward to reading your perspective on other points of interest. How about your take on the heart-breaking loss to Canada for the Women’s U.S. Hockey team? Don’t need an in-depth analysis but just your thoughts?

      I confess, I did not watch the entire game. I also feel the need to tread lightly on US/Canadian relations of any kind, ESPECIALLY in hockey haha! Maybe I’ll reveal my true feelings come April when we’re back home. 😉 But, thank you for your support, as always!

    I think it’s a great idea, and you have moved away from some of the gossip in the past already. I like the new approach, a mix of entertainment world news (I mostly haven’t even heard of the people you write about), and other stuff. Excited to see where you’re headed, but make sure not to lose your sassiness! 😀

    Every once in a while I start thinking about the same thing and just go for it. It’s always good to diversify…. Although, somehow my posts always end up with female celebrities in lingerie.

    Excited to see your take on a wider variety of topics!
