Magical Milestone!

I am in total shock.

Several months ago, I downloaded an amazing app called Flipboard and used it to compile all of my social media subscriptions, as well as articles from my favorite blogs, together in one single service.

Shortly after that, when I realized I could create and compile my own magazine, I decided to put together Writerlicious, a mag devoted to helping out writers of any skill with any goal.

For the longest time, I had about 25-31 subscribers, but I kept plugging away and continued to add articles to the magazine.

Then about a week ago, the number of readers skyrocketed.

As of the time of this post, Writerlicious has 17, 106 subscribers!

Thank you to everyone who reads and supports this Flipboard magazine!

For those of you who do not have a tablet or smart phone, it's a-ok. You can read Writerlicious online here, for free!

Once again, thank you to all of my readers, old and new, and please spread the word--we're all about writers helping other writers!

Good News Quickie!

Craziness! I won an internet contest!

I'm a huge fan of geek-related websites, like Nerd Approved, Fashionably Geek, and Geek Tyrant; but I have a special love for geek sites that are all about trivia and spreading the knowledge: Listverse, Cracked.com, Mental Floss, Today I Found Out, and Neatorama, for example.

I like to enter all sorts of contests on these websites, even though there's a long shot of winning...because hey, you never know.

Neatorama partnered with Today I Found Out to celebrate the release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. They had a contest where you could win a box of Captain America swag and an Amazon gift card, and then clothing prizes for second and third place.

I WON THIRD PLACE! Yay tee shirts!

I have amassed an impressive tee shirt collection. I love to wear shirts that have gorgeous prints on them, or shirts that celebrate all the dorky things I love, but in an unusual or artsy way.

My favorite places include Tee Fury, Threadless, and Etsy. And now I get to welcome two new shirts to my collection--one from the Neatoshop and one from the Today I Found Out Shop!

I've made my choices and I can't wait for these shirts to come in the mail.

From Today I Found Out: Prepare to Be Blinded By Awesome shirt

From Neatoshop: EJ the Titan Killer shirt

I'm particularly excited about the Attack on Titan shirt. I've been looking for something unique to celebrate the anime (also known as Shingeki no Kyojin), and although I like the shirts that have the different troop emblems on them, they didn't fit my own personal style.

Check this baby out! Eren Jaeger, killer of Titans!

I think I've found my new favorite tee.
