There's a new online-only magazine for women launching next week. It's called Knot So Subtle. Here's the URL ---> www.knotsosubtle.com.
If you go there now, you'll see this:
|Not that men aren't allowed. |
But, yeah, this is a chick site for chicks.
Not a lot of money. News flash: Most writers make very little, if any, scratch from their efforts. If we were doing it for the money, we'd be some hungry SOBs.
Still. You guys. This totally makes me a professional blogger.
|Here's my card. Nyuk nyuk nyuk.|
But this is the first time I've been paid to do the kind of writing I do here at Always Drunk. I write this blog because...hell, I don't really know why I write it. I have a compulsion to write and just enough ego to believe someone, somewhere might want to read it. I do it mostly for love of words and am utterly thrilled that I've attracted a small, kick-ass group of regular readers to share them with.
And now, with any luck, my poor words will be exposed to a larger audience. And maybe I'll be laughed off the Internet. But maybe, just maybe, a few more lovely people will join the Always Drunk family. I'd like that a lot.
So yes, this entire post is a shameless plug for a new online magazine that will feature content from yours truly. Knot So Subtle. It's from Canada, and Canada knows its shit. Going live on Monday, October 26. Maybe give it a click, not so much to support me (because I already feel your love on an overwhelmingly regular basis), but to support the talented writers, editors, and others who are trying to carve out a new destination for women's voices in cyberspace.
And I've already had three more pitches for future articles accepted. I'm scared to death.
(Confidential to Bestest Friend: This post veers dangerously close to the humblebrag model you dislike on another, very popular blogger's site. Don't worry, my essential insecurity and self-loathing remain intact.)
