Why would anyone want to discuss bullying online versus in person?
Bullyville.com is the first anti-bullying website that helps victims of bullying, whether they have been bullied in “real life” or online. The website offers a safe haven for victims to share their stories, find emotional support and connect with experts who can help them through difficult times. Fact of the matter is that in today’s society, bullying is far more prevalent online than it is in person.

Which user story has surprised you the most?
I was very surprised by Dj ASHBA’s (lead guitarist for Guns N Roses) story. He’s a good friend of mine, however I didn’t know how severe his bullying was as a child. It just goes to show you that anyone can take a negative experience and use it to fuel their continued success in life.

Do you think bullying gets worse over time?
It definitely can get worse over time and often many victims are left feeling as if their only option is to take their own life. I want victims out there to know, they do not need to take this extremely devastating and drastic action. There is a community of people out there who care about them. Cyber bullying is a major issue in our country right now and in fact, we just launched @bullyblast, a new platform to turn the tables on bullies and make them accountable for their actions. There was a guy on twitter recently who was telling a 15-year old girl that she should kill herself. We went after him and thanks to Twitter’s swift action, his account was closed and one can only hope he’s gone for good. Unfortunately in the online world, ten more people are lined up ready to take his place. It’s a battle worth fighting for, we will never quit.

If a school or workplace doesn’t want to do anything about taking bullying seriously, what should you do?
Talk to your parents or an adult that you trust, in some cases it may be a teacher, an aunt, uncle or even a neighbor. They can help you to ensure that you will be able to clearly communicate the issues at hand without fear of verbal dilution. If you are able to, document cases of bullying and present them to the school. It might be in the form of a Facebook message, a tweet, a video shot with your phone or a photo.

You have created a couple of websites and earn a living from the web. How can someone follow in your footsteps? What gets involved in setting up the actual website?
Step #1 – Come up with an idea/concept that you believe in, something that will make you want to work 80 hours per week. If you’re not passionate about your idea, others most likely won’t be either. Step #2 – go to uspto.gov and see if anyone has an idea that is similar to yours. Look for patents and trademarks, if you can’t find either proceed to Step#3. The most time consuming; believe it or not, is Step #3, coming up with a clever name for your company and immediately checking to see if the .com is available. Try to keep it short, the less syllables the better. Step #4 – go make it happen and don’t forget to protect your intellectual property along the way, that’s so important.

And the big question: how can someone earn enough money from websites to quit his or her day job?
With hard work it can absolutely be done. However be careful what you wish for. Your definition of a “day job” will change dramatically and it’s not as glamorous as one might think.

Amber Riley Performs Beautiful Tribute To Naya Rivera On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

Published

RIP.

Whenever Amber Riley and Naya Rivera combined their insurmountable talents on the hit show Glee there was an almost tangible magic that left fans in awe of the powerhouse duo. Playing Mercedes Jones and Santana Lopez respectively, the two characters may not have always seen eye to eye but when they joined you knew you were in for a memorable performance. It is sad to think that we will never get another “River Deep, Mountain High” or “The Boy Is Mine” moment after Rivera’s passing last month but there is something special in knowing Riley will carry the torch for her fallen costar forever.

On Thursday night introduced by guest-host Lil Rel, Riley virtually appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!  to perform a new song from her EP entitled “A Moment” which was dedicated to Rivera. “Not too long ago we both lost a really amazing friend in a tragic accident and we both will miss her forever,” said Lil Rel. The performance is displayed in black and white and features Riley singing in front of a montage of photos of her former co-star. It is truly stunning.

Check out the tribute below.

You Will Have Hearts In Your Eyes When You See Cardi B’s New Hair Do

Wait till you see her WAP (Wonderfully Artistic Pigtails)

Cardi B has never shied away from a bold look and her latest hair do is proof of that.

The 27-year-old “WAP” singer…song of the year IMO…took to Instagram Tuesday night to show off her pink, heart-shaped pigtails and people are loving the look. In the short video Cardi asks fans if they would “go to the club with your hair like this” and I think we can all agree that this look would definitely turn heads at the clurb.

The artistic hair do was crafted by Cardi’s long time longtime stylist Tokyo Stylez and took at least three hours to complete. Fans commented about how beautiful the unique hairstyle is but questioned how the rapper was going to sleep that night. Let’s hope those pigtails can be twisted off and be thrown on the nightstand.

Check It Out, Joe Jonas Has Shocked His Fans With His New Look

Published

I’m a sucker for his new do.

It doesn’t matter if you are more of a “Nick” or a “Kevin” or a “Joe” when it comes to loving the Jonas Brothers. All that matters is that you all agree with me that Joe is obviously the most attractive of the three brothers and that’s just a fact. I’m sorry but I don’t make the rules.

The 31-year old stunned fans today earlier today when he debuted a shocking new look on his Instagram. Sporting a black t-shirt and those signature dark, furry-Murray eyebrows, Joe flashed his new platinum blond buzzcut. I know I might be in the minority here but I do love when these Hollywood hotties switch it up and do the blond thing. I loved it on Adam Levine. I loved it on Zac Efron. I even found myself oddly drawn to the OG platinum stud, James Michael Tyler aka Gunther from Friends.

Perhaps the new do is a part of Joe’s daddy-makeover as he and his wife, Sophie Turner, recently welcomed their first child, Willa. A source told ET “Sophie and Joe have named their daughter Willa. The couple’s bond has gotten even stronger since the addition of their daughter. Although circumstances are different right now because of the [coronavirus] pandemic, Joe was there for the birth of his daughter. The couple is happy they now have time to spend at home with their daughter and get used to their new life together.”

Be still my heart.
