Introducing Miss A’s Guy Friday

I’m excited to announce a new feature on AskMissA.com called “Miss A’s Guy Friday” written by my good friend Mike Carson, who is always cracking me up with his sassy comments on people, fashion, and relationships. Many of you may know Mike as my manager / web producer and the owner of Mike Carson Creative, but he’s so much more than that – he’s my Guy Friday. Mike is my right hand and helps me in countless ways with both the business and media sides of Ask Miss A, in addition to other services performed in a crisis – like when my car battery died and he came over to jump start it for me on his way to a date!

As Miss A’s Guy Friday, Mike will take the helm every Friday answering select reader questions in addition to providing his views and advice on a variety of topics including quirky news stories, personal grooming (especially for men), fashion and relationships. As part of this special feature, Mike will also write one feature article every Friday that examines the various sides of a particular topic in his signature no-nonsense style.

I hope you all will enjoy his unique perspective as much as I do.

– Miss A

An Introductory Message from Guy Friday

Hey Miss A Readers,

I’m very excited about this opportunity; Being asked personally by Andrea to write for the site is an immense honor and I will do my best to entertain and not offend too many of you. (My mouth has gotten me in trouble before!) As Andrea mentioned my perspective lies on the spicier side of life – Think of me as the sassier, brunette Miss A!

Entertainment and outrageousness aside, I hope my columns help those of you out there who are going through many of the issues I’ll be addressing and that the content sheds new light on the way you look at and feel about certain situations. While most of my advice pertains to platonic and romantic relationships, I’ll also try and keep things light by using a generous amount of humor and also covering lighter topics such as fashion, grooming, and recommendations.

I hope you enjoy the column and please leave your feedback in the comments section – Miss A and I want to hear what you think, be it positive or negative!

~ Guy Friday
