‘5 Strategies For Watching Live TV (Just Like In The 1980s) ‘ | Inside Voice 8

Susan Maccarelli from Beyond Your Blog reads her hilarious essay about ditching cable and watching TV 80’s style. Which basically translates to no DVR, (AIS) ass in seat, planned snack and bathroom breaks and ‘Donald Trump making you his bitch for weeks on end’ while you tune in religiously to Celebrity Apprentice.

Pecked To Death By Chickens is Susan’s humor blog, though occasionally she’ll author a poignant post revealing her soft underbelly (a euphemism AND a literal description). Susan also helps other bloggers get featured on the sites they aspire to, on her blog resource site Beyond Your BlogFeatures on sites like BlogHerBlunt Moms, BonBon Break, In The Powder Room and of course Scary Mommy, help feed her attention seeking behavior. She still hasn’t figured out what Instagram is, so check her out on FacebookTwitter and Google+ instead.

‘Transitioning From One Child To Two: Hello, Shit Show’ | Inside Voice 5


Alessandra Macaluso reads her sidesplitting hilarious essay about the shitastrophy of going from one child to two.

Alessandra Macaluso is an author, freelance writer and blogger. Follow her blog PunkWife.com for more information about her upcoming books and projects.

What’s a “punkwife?” I like to describe her as a slightly intoxicated yet ambitious Martha Stewart. Her house is not perfect, she has trouble keeping houseplants alive, and she sometimes burns dinner. But she still pushes on forward pinning every great idea she finds because she has a passion for trying, for doing things her way, and for laughing at herself when she fails miserably. A punkwife is the modern day housewife. And – just so we are clear – by “housewife” I mean the over-worked (be it at an office or with her children,) under paid, party loving hot mess you are. Welcome home.
