Over at Torn World, I've got THREE new items for you today, including an article on Beads in the Northern Culture, a new character, Tobern, created by the late valdary, who I still miss horribly, and a new bonus for registered readers, a downloadable coloring page of this piece. Last week, my poem In Natural Time went up, as well as a canon-eligible mystery portrait. (The non-canon gallery becomes visible to logged-in folks.)
Artists! I am in need of artwork! Portrait Adoption needs portraits! The Arabian Nights coloring book needs linework in that theme (submit in the lilypad, inquire if you are new)! EMG-Zine needs artwork in the theme of Dryads, Jewels, Butterflies, Owls, Mushrooms, Scandinavian Mythology, Frogs and Ships! I need folks interested in being involved with Commission-Control to upload artwork for the gallery!
I will probably be removing the Project Wonderful ads from EMG-Zine. I had 19 ads to approve today, and only allowed four of them, rejecting the 'free articles' spam site, the left-leaning political propaganda (I would have rejected any right-leaning political propaganda, too...), the obnoxiously bright BLINKING BLINKING BLINKING humorous t-shirt ad, and the viagra sites. You're welcome.
Considering these ad spaces have only gotten up to about .03 in months, I really don't find them worth my time. If you'd like to advertise on the site, please consider a subscription, which comes with free advertising and counts directly towards our survival goal:
$541 / $900 total funding by June 2011. 60% done! If we haven't made this goal, the December 2011 issue will be our last!
I have added straight donations as an option at the EMG-Zine site, and today I added that donation option to the sidebar.
Health-wise, I am still staggeringly underpowered and coughing, but I think there's improvement. I plan to strap on my snow-shoes later today and stagger out into the snow with my camera - Jake and I took a hike yesterday that was utterly gorgeous and worth the resulting wipe-out, and I was wishing I had my camera the whole way.
