Happy (Almost) New Year!

Happy New Year!

2013 was a warm-up act for most of my projects. With new contracts — including a bigger role at The Best of the Left Podcast (which everyone should go like/follow/subscribe to) — and a more writing-conducive schedule, expect periodic announcements, updates, and new, awesome ventures I can’t even tease yet. Thank you for being early readers and listeners! It’s about to get exciting…

With the increased activity, more frequent posting and more diversified projects, regular email subscribers to KatieSpeak may find getting an email EVERY TIME something new goes up on the website to be a bit spammy. Unfortunately, WordPress (my host) doesn’t have an email preferences option or a way for me to do a once/week blast. But! There is always a solution: email newsletters.

I’ve got my KatieSpeak Mailer rolling and you can subscribe there instead of my blog. I promise, I won’t take it personally if you unsubscribe from the WordPress site. I don’t love constant emails from anyone either. My current mailer is available to view — Click HERE — if you want to check it out. I’m still getting good at the code and layout at Mail Chimp (I’m a writer not a web designer!), so if you have feedback I am happy to have it. You can subscribe by Clicking HERE!

Also, if you like what I do, consider supporting my work by clicking HERE to donate. The more support I have, the faster I can turn this into a full-time gig and the more effective my advocacy and activism will become. You can do a one-time donation, which is SO helpful and is crucial to funding new equipment, travel, expenses, etc. You can also click the “Make this a recurring payment” box to become a sustaining supporter. I don’t like paywalls; my work should be available to everyone. But I can only work so much without regular contributors. Help me say yes to more of this increasingly important work in 2014!

Also, look for periodic announcement posts during January as I start incorporating new elements into my platform. The plan was to have that out January 1st, but cool shit just keeps showing up and I keep saying yes. So, there’ll just have to be more than one. I can’t wait for 2014 and I’m psyched to have you along for the ride!

If you found this post informative, entertaining, helpful, etc. you can subscribe to the Katie Speak Mailer which has all my posts, Tawkers live chats, radio segments and activism info. You can also click SUPPORT to keep me speaking and follow me on Facebook and twitter. Thanks!
