An In-Between Post!

ErinBlog Maintenance2 Comments

My last post on self-injury knocked the wind out of me. I’ve been writing the follow up post for over a week, but my emotions are building me up and knocking me down. I can’t talk about the reasons not to self-injure without examining the reasons I started self-injuring to begin with. And that’s overwhelming. I feel like the next … Read More

Thank You!

In my last blog post I wrote about being desperately broke yet needing money to renew our domain name, remove ads from the site, and then pay off my zine photocopy expenses. I spoke of saving up for a laptop with any extra money so that I can write blog posts on the go. I was so shocked by your … Read More

Thank You! Zine Pre-Orders Open

I woke up from a nightmare this morning to feel the sun on my face. Without even opening my eyes I recognized its warmth, and with a stretch that cracked several bones in my body, I reached out my foot while opening my eyes and pulled the blind down enough with my toes so that it rolled up toward the … Read More

Writer’s Regret

ErinBlog Maintenance11 Comments

In writing this blog, I go through cycles of being proud to being unsure to being downright confused. Today I’m confused about my responsibility as both a writer and a human being. My last post was a giant warning to my readers to avoid a faux documentary called A Necessary Death. I received two comments from readers, one on WordPress … Read More

100 Feelings

ErinBlog Maintenance7 Comments

On the 100th day of school in Grade One we had to bring in 100 items of our choosing. I brought 100 pieces of popcorn. I don’t know if I ate the popcorn after, but probably not because everyone touched it while counting. This is my 100th post. Yay! I would never¬† have guessed that I’d written that many but … Read More

Housekeeping & Snail Self-Talk

Isn’t that a rad typewriter? It’s my sister’s, even though I’ve tried to get her to sell it to me a zillion times. I thought it was fitting for this post because those little yellow snails on the top are my various negative-self-talk voices. “You suck!” – snail on the far right “This is way too depressing to post.” – … Read More
