Eldercare, Family Caretaking, and End-of-life Logistics: Stuff I Learned

My mother died this year, after a long decline in her health, and I was one of the main people who helped take care of her. While caring for her, preparing for her death, and handling logistics afterwards, I learned a lot from online resources (including MetaFilter), various professionals, and friends. So I'm trying to pass on some things I learned -- about paperwork, patient advocacy, body donation, delegating to friends, coping with Mom's delirium and incontinence, and more -- by sharing them in a blog post I have been working on for months. It was pretty hard to write in places, and I hope it saves people a few unpleasant surprises. [more inside]

Incredible Doom: Eternal September

You can read Issue 1 free online today, and you'll be able to read the entire series for free as it's posted to followers. No ads, no trackers, no middlemen, we're going back to our roots on the open web. [more inside]

The Calm Life

4.26.17 I recently had to do a complete lifestyle change, move from the big city to a small town in the mountains. My website is to launch next week on Wordpress, and will be focused on living a calmer life. TheCalmLife.net will need some guest posts, and I am looking for a few writers who wish to guest post. There is no pay but I encourage your articles to be beneficial and "pretty" with original content and photos. The best part is you can link drop to one good link in your article for posting.

barrl: gusty winds may exist

I started one of those blogs people have where they write about all the stuff they care about. Topics include, among other things: social justice and feminism, video games (especially Dragon Age) and menstruation. Also, there are jokes. [more inside]

The Portland Tarot Forecast

A free weekly reading for the whole city. I got the idea because sometimes I'd noticed the same card or cards showing up in different people's readings in the same few days, and I felt like I was glimpsing larger spiritual currents. I wanted to more fully examine that, and also to combine my writing flair with my divinatory reading skills. Warning: Contains mysticism

Who Are You Supposed To Be?

I have been blogging about the creation of my latest play, a Doctor Who-themed romantic comedy called "Who Are You Supposed to Be?" that is set to debut at the Edinburgh Fringe in August. There are five posts about the project on my blog so far, tagged appropriately. We are also running a fundraiser and there is an IRL event for the show.

The Long Bleep, a podcast and blog about taboo language.

The Long Bleep will be a public forum for discussion of four-letter words, "dirty" words, swearing, cursing, obscenities, and more. The first step is a questionnaire. Its results will be used to create podcasts and blog posts structured around things that really happened when taboo language was used: confrontations, first encounters, eureka moments, learning situations. Those stories will lead us down cultural and historical paths as we tease out the complicated relationship English-speakers worldwide have with "dirty" words. More information on the blog.
