We're All About
Welcome to This Awful/Awesome Life. My name is Frances Joyce and
my co-creator/editor/ publisher and all things awesome is Jay Speyerer.
Jay and I are both writers. After searching for a place to write about
things that interest us and hopefully you, we decided to create one.
Life can be awful. Life can be awesome. Sometimes a little awful makes
you appreciate what's awesome.
Imagine one online magazine bringing together people and places. What
do we have in common in Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Vermont, Florida,
California, Georgia, Sweden, and Australia? We have people like you
making their lives and the lives of everyone they encounter just a
little bit more awesome. Unlike traditional magazines, we'll have
articles, stories, book reviews, pictures, videos, and some links
to other websites. If you have comments, please send either of us
an email. Be advised that email comments may appear in a subsequent
issue, so watch your spelling.
We have questions, and we are going to look for answers together.
We are looking for people in the Pittsburgh area, all around the country
and the world willing to share their ideas on particular subjects
and contribute articles or videos to our magazine. If you have writing
chops and something to share contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We don't
currently pay for submissions, but send us your photo, and we'll put
it with your by-line.
Jay and I will choose the subject for each month. We'll post the topic
for next month in this issue.
We are also looking for sponsors who want to advertise to an audience
with unlimited potential at very affordable prices. If you own a business
and you think your advertising dollars should buy more than a couple
of inches of space on a page, you've come to the right place, but
more about that later.
I don't know about you, but I'm so tired of hearing about problems.
I'm ready to try some solutions, and I'm ready to see the world as
the awesome amazing place it can be. We have billions of caring wonderful
people out there. Why should we focus on a few individuals and give
them their fifteen minutes of fame? Let's take back this awesome life
and celebrate each day!
Who's ready to get started? Tell your friends and start following
This Awful/Awesome Life.
Our best to all,
Fran and Jay
