For a while, I wasn’t sure if I would say anything on the matter. However, seeing that I have provided updates about it for the better part of a half year, it made sense to follow up on it.
It’s been six months since YOMYOMF got shut down, and since then, I’ve been struggling with finding a new outlet to venture out to. I’m happy to now say that apart from now being a contributor to my job’s blog, I’ve also become a part of not one but two other outlets.
As of this month, I am the newest contributor to The Nerds of Color. For those who are unfamiliar with it, The Nerds of Color is an outlet established by Keith Chow back in 2013, that focuses on everything pop culture and geeky – books, movies, TV, etc. – from a culturally critical point of view.
Much like YOMYOMF, this is a blog that I’ve been reading and following for quite some time before finally making the leap of faith to join them. So far, I’ve had two pieces published on there, and I’m currently in the midst of trying to land my first interviewee for them. While I probably won’t be posting as frequently as I did with YOMYOMF, still expect to see my presence on there grow over time. It is truly an honor to be a part of them now.
In addition to The Nerds of Color, I’ve also taken to agreeing to also occasionally contribute to asienne magazine; an online publication highlighting Asian women in the arts that was established just within the last year. If this outlet sounds familiar to you, then you might recall that just last month, they did a feature piece about me. Since then, I’ve been in communication with the editor, Anna, and we’ve since agreed to having me occasionally write for asienne too. So far, I haven’t written anything for it yet, but watch the space, and see what has yet to come.
So we are just about halfway through with this year, and I am so grateful to find myself in the position of having a hand in several different outlets. The fact that I’ll having some breathing room to work on my creative writing makes it all even more worth while. I await to see where these journeys lead and I hope you’ll come along for the ride.
If you are able to, I hope you can go support me in all that I do by leaving a tip over on Ko-fi. I do a lot of writing that I get paid very little for or not at all, and so this is a way of showing your support other than just reading my content. Donations of varying quantities and frequencies are greatly appreciated.
