I Had A Cunning Plan

MAL: I don’t plan on any shooting taking place during this job.
JAYNE: Well, what you plan and what takes place ain’t ever exactly been similar.

My health has very not been on board for meeting launch deadline with the amount and type of content I’d originally intended to have ready. I’m going through another bout of sleep issues and that fucks everything over, basically. Like, I had such plans and intentions and my brain and my body have been like, OH HELL NO.

So what I do definitely have for you right now is the bits and bobs I rolled out the past few days, including the IKEA trip recap and yesterday’s “Firefly is responsible for my marriage” post, plus a couple easy features scheduled to publish later today.

I’m not sure how the day is going to look from my end of things; as I write this, it’s around 5 am PST and I woke up just before noon on Tuesday. I did get a decent chunk of sleep yesterday so at least I have that going for me. Right now all I can think about is getting this post done and getting back to the coloring page I was working on earlier.

While this isn’t how I’d hoped for things to go, this is certainly an honest beginning.


This box on fire I drew for Owen the other day at his request really speaks to me right now.


Launch Day: March 8th!

Official launch date and time: Wednesday, March 8th, at 9:00 am PST (12:00 pm EST, 5:00 pm UTC)!

Leading up to launch, we’ll be publishing a couple items of the getting-to-know-you variety, and then on the big day we’ll have several new items to share with you.

Types of content you can expect from us: personal narrative, editorials, reviews, and links (resources, things we love, happenings, etc.).

Major areas of focus: education, family (marriage, parenting, faith and culture), feminism, health (mental and physical), LGBT+ issues, media (mostly literature, film and television), and social and political issues. Expect some overlap between topics; just as life doesn’t sort these topics into perfectly distinct, separate little boxes, neither can we as we explore and reflect upon the issues we face.
