Jenny Lawson, “The Bloggess” began writing a mommy blog for the Houston Chronicle, but quickly found that it wasn’t enough.
To truly fulfill her desires, she created a blog where she could write about whatever she wanted: ninjas, sex, zombies, William Shatner, - just - whatever. She also developed a satirical sex and advice columns.
Because some people consider her content controversial, Lawson has received her fair share of hate mail. She told WebProNews she turns it into something positive: free entertainment.
For example, people have told her “your retarded,” but in all actuality, the joke is on them since they misspelled “you’re.” She said:
“If you’re not entertained by your own blog and both the people that love you and the people that hate you, then I think you’re missing out.”
When Matt Sloan and Aaron Yonda created the first Chad Vader film, they had no idea that it would turn into the Internet sensation that it is today. The very first episode reached over 100,000 views on YouTube the first day and has gone on to exceed 9 million views today.
The storyline is based on the younger brother of Darth Vader, Chad, who is a grocery store manager. Yonda plays the role of Chad Vader, while Sloan provides the voice.
The Chad Vader phenomenon has now turned into a series with a finished season 1 and a nearly completed season 2. Both Yonda and Sloan have been able to quit their day jobs and devote all their time to Chad Vader. The two are very appreciative of the opportunities the Web has offered them.
