I’m not a writer! How else can I get involved?

Wow. From the bottom of our hearts THANK YOU. It means the world to us that you’d want to help. We’d love to have your assistance in getting the word out because frankly we believe that what we’re doing here rules too. Here are a few easy ways you can help us as we continue to grow!

1) Signal boost us!
The algorithm comes for us all! The best way you can help us is to share our content on Instagram and Twitter and interact with us when you see something you like! Your likes and comments make us more visible! To make talking us up online easier we make super cute and sharable graphics on Instagram to make this easier! Post those to your story or on your feed and be sure to tag us! It helps a lot- PROMISE!

2) Sign up for our newsletter!
That’s right! We’re launching a newsletter that is coming soon and we’d love to have you sign up! We promise to never spam you & you can opt out anytime if you don’t like our content! We won’t be mad!

3) Get in touch!
Got an idea for a story? Know of someone who would be a great contributor? Just want to say howdy? We’d love to hear from you!

As always— you are the reason we do this. We are a humble team of two and we do this to make you feel more normal, more seen, and more understood! We love this place and we’re excited to share it with you.
