Write for Me! A Letter to My Readers

Dear Readers,

As you may have noticed, the posting here at Anti-Choice is Anti-Awesome has been spotty over the last year or so. At first I convinced myself that it was on temporary hold while I planned my wedding, but the wedding is over and I find myself with a conundrum: I don’t have the time or the energy to produce a reasonable amount of new content for the blog.

In its heyday, ACiAA had a pretty reasonable audience, and it did pretty well for a blog largely about abortion access in the Maritimes. I don’t want to get rid of it, mainly because I think there are things that still need to be said and it would be a shame to waste this platform. It has become increasingly clear to me that I am just not the one to say those things.

So, I’m opening the blog up to contributors. I would love to hear from anyone, but am particularly looking for young people, particularly in the Maritimes, and especially activists and clinic escorts. ACiAA has mostly dealt with abortion and related issues but I’m open to posting on any number of related topics, including (but not limited to): pregnancy, birth control, adoption, childfree/parenting, sex, sexuality, gender, reproductive justice, access to sexual/reproductive health services, challenges of activism, etc. The most important thing is that we're not just re-hashing American abortion news - this is a Canadian content blog.

If you would like to contribute to the blog, please contact me. It can be as frequently or infrequently as you like (one-time guest spots welcome!). Ideally I would like to be putting up weekly content, but I’ll see what kind of interests this gets. Please feel free to spread the word - the more interested people, the better!

Email me at pedgehog (at) gmail (dot) com.

Your humble blogger,
Peggy (the Pedgehog)
