What story are you most proud of writing or working on?

My coverage on viral culture has launched careers. I profiled Ben Lashes, which gave him a huge boost in recognition and business.

Which type of weed is right for you? — Marijuana has grown a reputable name for itself in the past few years. Gone are the days when the leafy plant signified stoner-status. Weed is a booming industry that's toking up millions in tax revenue. As more opportunities arise for legal experimentation with the popular drug, so do various types of marijuana.

Creative 'Twin Peaks' fans make a damn fine art show — RICHMOND, Virginia - is a bizarre piece of cult-cherished art that's inspired many artists to express their inner David Lynch. At a local bookstore in Richmond, Virginia, the Twin Peaks art show highlights the work of creative fans this weekend.

10 more clever 404 error pages for Hillary Clinton — Hillary Clinton wants everyday Americans to know she's one of them, and so far, she's doing a good job showing it. Like other Americans, she eats Chipotle in secret, likes Saturday morning cartoons and loves a good #TBT.

'Game of Thrones' assembles as the Avengers — Winter may be coming, but the future is pretty bright for nerds these days. The hype is bursting at Hulk's purple pants seams as Marvel and Game of Thrones fans wait for the return of their beloved vices. Dark nights are undoubtedly coming to Westeros this season, so the houses could take a tip from the Avengers on fighting for survival.

'Goodnight Westeros' is your twisted 'Game of Thrones' storybook

Why Kristen Bell works to live, but lives for her kids — While parents can thank Kristen Bell's character for putting the earworm "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?" in their toddlers' ears, her own daughter would much rather listen to dad rock. "She has heard the music, but very much favors '70s and '80s rock above anything else.

15 new emoji that look like celebrities — Finally, we've been given the proper tools to express ourselves more accurately when talking about pop culture. Apple released a more diverse set of emoji in its latest update, and celebrity gossip between friends just got a whole lot more visual.

The Netflix watch is the only smartwatch worth buying — Apple, schmapple. Give me a device that allows me to forget about time and fall into a binge-watching black hole. While all eyes are on the latest shiny smartwatch to hit the market, Netflix cheekily released an ad for its own wrist-ready device.

Cocktails 101: A simple guide to making mixed drinks — "Just make me something strong," is the worst thing you can say to a bartender. There is a fine art to crafting cocktails, but that shouldn't deter anyone from making drinks at home. In fact, less is more.

Norman Reedus crashes college class to surprise students — In New York, actor Norman Reedus from Walking Dead crashed a TV production class at St. John's University. Mashable was invited to the star's teaching session, and as it turns out, Reedus is much easier on the brain when he's not bashing in zombies' heads.
