Hi all, today's post is about blogging
, media, and the freelance market. Since it was pretty long in typewritten format, I decided to record it; listen up, and then leave me a comment about what you think!
(The transcript is available below, and it includes links to some things I mention)

"Side by Side,"
a new double-sided accordion mini-zine of visual observations and
projections of social isolation.
It's waiting to be read at the palm of your hand!…

Drumroll, please! Today, I am introducing first installment of my serial science fiction project, The Observer. As a writer, I have gravitated mostly towards science fiction in the past, and wanted to re-visit my love for it through producing content regularly. So, this serial fiction is coming to you in parts, just like your favorite… Continue

Viva La Slut #1
This zine is about slut-shaming and taking back the word slut as a derogatory remark. This zine is also about sex positivity and body confidence also, it is about rape and the phrase "what was he/she wearing,saying or were they drunk". For right now this zine is up for trades and i'm not selling it unless a distro wants to sell… Continue

I'm not sure if this is the appropriate place to make a post like this, but i want to record it somewhere. I had a similar experience a few years ago I recorded on eHealthforum.com, and was going to do it there, but apparently my last post dropped off their "archive", so I decided to do it here. I've "whined" about it on Vegan Fitness Forum often enough, that I thought I'd better not bug them about it anymore.
Last night I had one of the worst bouts of "burning, aching, numbness" in… Continue

This weekend, I had the pleasure of attending an all-day set of writing workshops at Richard Hugo House in Seattle. Since I have been learning to beat writer's block
, this day was a necessary shock to my system - an entire day of learning, writing, and revising is just what I needed! And, because I believe in the power of sharing, I thought I would disclose…

although theres been some incredible articles written in zines lately-i mean,who ever knew how tough it was for white people out there-but one thing that has never been mentioned in any of these great,amazingly god like zines of mass distribution-is semiautomatic guns,and thier place in the zine world.now,most zines are devoted to way more important issues facing the world-like the author,or thier opinion,or thier sexuality,or the author,or,sometimes a zinester(or,"loser")might write about… Continue

In this perzine bitchfest, I force myself to relive my ever-so-brief glory days of working at a comic store (two weeks worth) and paying the price of watching The Gong Show in public. Plus, very brief notes on surviving Mardi Gras and the vortexes in Sedona, Arizona…and then yer standard reviews.
This sucker is 12 B&W pages, 8 x 11 and comes with a $2 price tag. No trades to prisoners!
Send interest, money and good trade to:

As I was trying to rouse myself from a literary stupor this week, I searched around the internet for some inspiration
to fill myself up until I could no longer stand the feeling of not writing. One of the articles that I came across that most inspired me was The Rumpus

I love to browse the classifieds in the Zine Worlds and send out random postcards and notes to the people that are looking for penpals, submissions, mail art and the like. So, I'm playing with the idea of making a zine centered around classifieds like the Classifieds section in the Zine Worlds. I would love to hear what people think about this idea. If you think it's a good idea, send me some info for your own zinester classified ad. It could be for swaps, handouts, mail art, penpals, or… Continue

I made my first zine (and so far the only perzine I have ever finished) back in 2002. I was about 16/17 and was very proud of it even though I rushed to get it finished in time for a concert.
The last zine I made was back in 2005/2006 (I can't remember which year exactly).
With 2011: The Revenge of Print I was all set with enthusiasm and ideas to do zines this year.
I have various bits of paper around with what I wanted to have in issue two of On A Sugar High. Skipping… Continue

My Creative Every Day hopes this week were somewhat diminished as I found that I had a lot of ideas, but nowhere to go with them - thus, next week's goal will be implementing those ideas and seeing how it all turns out. The pictures this week reflect my new sweaterdress project at different stages of its completion, my urge to draw bears, and some design changes to The Cowation logo in order to fit with the Facebook parameters - speaking of which, you… Continue

As I noted briefly in the last Caught My Eye post
, my boyfriend and I have been watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer like fiends ever since I was blessed with the power of Netflix. Since there's nothing like a little '90s programming to get my… Continue

Poems written in late May of 2011
[poem notes in brackets like this]
1. [What if???]

it's hard to see
Moon you conjuror you -
taking in rays of the sun
into your gray and barren land.
