New series, Miss Guided focused last week’s episode around a blog called “Lindsay Lopez”, a gossip blog focused around the high school in the show. The characters even go so far as to say that the URL is lindsaylopez.net.
While watching, I fired up the laptop to see how well done the site is. Thing is, there’s no lindsaylopez.net.
