I was poking around our stats and numbers on QL today and I came across something really cool that kinda made my day. I discovered today that we were footnoted and cited as a reference in a Wikipedia article! The lucky author was our very own Travis Acreman and it was on a post he did in June of last year.
So I think this will be my last official post on QL about Robin Williams. He’s been put to rest and with everything in me I hope he finds the peace that escaped him here. I missed the Emmys this year but I heard there was this tribute. I watched it and I decided I wanted to post it along with some of my final thoughts…
So Costco rolled out a low calorie version of their pre-mixed margarita. I gave it a try a couple weeks ago and it’s made the cut for happy hour!
Starting this week, we are moving our direct email list. This is going to be a big endeavor but it’s definitely time. Our email list is just too big to continue to handle manually. We have needed to go back to an opt-in email format for a while but testing different email systems just took longer than expected. We’ve settled for now on Constant Contact for our direct email list needs and we’re super excited and motivated to get it all done so we can move on to migrating QL to the downloadable version of WordPress.
A while back I had the idea of posting a “Top 10″ list on Tuesdays highlighting the most popular blogs over the last 7 days. I can’t remember where I heard or read about this idea but I’m pretty sure I can’t take all the credit because I’m pretty sure I got it from somewhere. At any rate, this has been an idea for a while now and I wanted to give it a try. Click the link below to find out what’s been hot on QL this last week. You might be surprised!
When Sebastian Youngstrum (Ryan Kibby) meets the older, handsome Max Taymer, (Jon Fleming) a forbidden world awakens in the mind of the young man. Both Sebastian’s best-friend, Gina Claremore (Shoniqua Shandai) and Max’s best-friend Natalie (Jaclyn Marfuggi) know something has changed. With a growing feeling of distrust towards both men and a paranoid feeling that someone is stalking Sebastian, Gina and Natalie try to intervene. But it’s too late. Sebastian is in love with Max and will prove to him that they share the same violence of the mind.
I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and reflecting this week since the passing of Robin Williams by suicide. I’ve asked myself what more can I do to help people battling depression and other mental health issues. More specifically, being Chief Queer here at Project Q, I’ve asked myself what more can I do to help combat suicide for our community. I’ve decided to donate some advertising space to one of the finest suicide prevention organizations I know: The Trevor Project.
