Happy Monday, everyone! How were your weekends? I spent the whole weekend subsisting almost entirely on Cadbury Creme Eggs, so that’s what this Daily Goodie is devoted to!
Welcome to another fantastic week at Persephone Magazine! If you’re new, we’re so happy you found us! And if you’ve been around, thanks for sticking around! We love our readers and commenters. And to start us off this week in TDG, I just want to say â€¦ thank you for being a friend. Continue reading
Good day, Persephoneers!
I am still bursting with Spring Spirit. Continue reading
It’s officially spring! Sally J. has made a little map of the locations of all our editors and thankless interns. Not only does that mean that I can show up unexpectedly at everyone’s house, but I can also post spring pictures to represent all of us. Fun! Continue reading
Good morning! It’s March 15th, also known as the Ides of March if you’re a Julius Caesar fan. Continue reading
Today’s Daily Goodie is brought to you by the letter P and the number 20: Continue reading
Good morning, Persephoneers! As many of you know, last night we had to make the move to a shiny new server. It was a tad bit more complicated than we had anticipated (as these things tend to be), and so our diligent yet exhausted editor-in-chief and her army of server gnomes need to take some time to regroup and make sure everything is spiffed up and ready for company. So we’ve taken the liberty of extending the weekend one additional day, and hope you’ll join us in this open thread until we’re 100% back in business.
To get us started, and as a tribute to our HBIC getting this server nonsense squared away pretty much by herself, I leave you with some Aretha and Annie Lennox:
Good morning, Persephoneers! It’s Thursday again already, which means we’re all in the home stretch of this week. Yay! We’ve got a pretty good day in store for you, lots of good pieces to read are stashed in the hopper. Plus, day 3 of Middlemarch voting @7p EST. Continue reading
Are you a searcher of original content or do you mostly rely on your Facebook and Twitter feeds to get your Internet jollies? Continue reading
It’s not a leap year, that means that today is the last day of February! You know what happens in March? That’s when Spring starts! Woohoo! So, on that note I have a delightful little tune to start off our last day of the month on a good note, by our unofficial Persephone Magazine band. Enjoy! Continue reading
As we are encountering a glut of open threads, we’ve decided to consolidate the nightly open thread with the morning open thread, because replacing one open thread with another is (like the Oxford comma!) a little redundant. (Copyeditor’s note: It. Is. On. -PoM) So in the morning if you want to chat, jump back in here until we get things rolling with the Daily Goodie, now playing at 11:30 AM. Continue reading
It’s seven o’clock here at the Persephone offices, which means we’re done filling up the page for the day, and now it’s your turn. Enjoy this thread all weekend, but keep in mind it may take us just a little bit longer than normal to approve the newbies while we attend to our pesky real lives. Continue reading
Well, it’s a day late, but I wanted to wish all you Persephoneers a Happy Chinese New Year! The new year actually began yesterday, but since Fridays are my territory I figured we could rehash it. We are now in the Year of the Rabbit. Kiss the Year of the Tiger goodbye. Continue reading
It’s the first day of the work week and the last day of the month! I prefer it when the last day of the month falls on a Friday because it feels like everything is wrapping up nicely and it doesn’t make my dayplanner look out of order. Alas, that will not be happening until September this year. But, the last day of January does bring us Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day! So I brought some bubble wrap pictures to you all.
Happy Friday once again, my dears. Today’s Goodie is for all you bookish nerds out there. I’ve just been made aware of Book-A-Minute, a years-old website that provides short, slighly snarky summaries of classic books. I’m aware that y’all hate clicking through to external websites, but believe me that this is worth the click. Here’s probably my favorite summary, which will hopefully entice you to click through for more. Continue reading
