Share Your Own Review

Over on the Survivors News and Review blog, we’ve setup a page for you to submit your own review of books, documentaries, movies, etc. that you have found really helpful. Naturally, there are rules about what can be submitted, but if you have something to share with the survivor community and don’t want to be bothered going and creating your own blog, submit a review and we’ll consider sharing it!

 

New Email Newsletter

If you’ve been getting posts here by email, never fear, I haven’t turned that off. You’ll still be getting those, but I have hidden away the signup form for new subscribers. Simply put, the default email subscription tool for WordPress just isn’t doing it for me. All it does is send out posts when they are published. I have been toying around with some new things I want to try, and wanted something a bit more flexible, so I’ve created a subscriber list using Mailchimp. Right now, if you sign up for that list, you’ll receive one newsletter per week, on Monday morning, with all of the week’s posts from this blog and the News and Reviews blog.

Eventually, I will be adding some new features, perhaps running some contests, surveys, or making some special content available to newsletter subscribers. I can’t really say for sure because so much depends on what kind of interest there is in the newsletter first! So, if you’d like to start getting weekly updates, and more surprises in the future, sign up now!

Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse for August – Change

I’m going to be hosting the monthly Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse here this month. Since this is a month where I am facing some big changes in life, including moving across the country at the end of it, I thought why not look into the topic of change. As survivors, change can be terrifying. We are comforted by control and predictability, so change isn’t something that we naturally look forward to. But it doesn’t have to stay that way! I’d love to hear from some folks this month who have managed to embrace change, make changes in their own lives, and how they’ve overcome this fear of change!

As always, we will have the regular topics as well and I look forward to seeing all of you submitting a post, old or new, for this month’s carnival!

-Advocacy and Awareness
-Aftermath
-Healing and Therapy
-In the News
-Poetry
-Survivor Stories
-Art Therapy

To submit an article, you can fill out this submission form. To find out more about this “Blog carnival” thing, you can check out Tracie’s page for more details. The deadline for submissions is Weds. Aug 27.  The carnival will go live on Friday Aug 29, the day before I move actually. ;-)

Now let’s put together a chorus of survivor’s voices for this month’s carnival and show the world that we’re out here!

Flipboard Magazine

If you are a Flipboard user on your iPhone or iPad, you can now get all the content from this site, as well as various links that I share throughout the week, in the Child Abuse Survivors magazine.

You can subscribe in the app, or on the web, and then follow along with the things that are being shared here and among many other resources covering all kinds of topics, in an easy to read online magazine type layout. I use Flipboard on my iPad as a way to see what my Twitter followers are sharing, as well as the “big” news over the subjects that interest me.

If you have a Flipboard magazine that is also sharing information of interest to abuse survivors, let us know in the comments!

Now on Tumblr Too

Tumblr IconIf you’re a regular Tumblr user, you can now follow this blog, including all of our posts, on our tumblr blog. Right now it just has a link to the latest posts up, but eventually I’d like to start getting involved with other survivors over there, the same way that we do on Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus, currently.

If that’s your place to hang out and you want to keep up with the site, by all means, follow us over there – http://childabusesurvivor.tumblr.com/
