  • uproar - indie finds for your uncommon life

I just wanted to let everyone know about my new blog, - indie finds for your uncommon life.

You can also read via your LJ friends list by subscribing to malaprop_rss.

I'm focusing on independent artists and businesses, both in New Orleans (where I live) and elsewhere, as well as other New Orleans & Gulf Coast-related issues and events. I'm trying to use this blog as a way to let people everywhere know about cool independent businesses in the Gulf Coast region...trying to show a brighter side of stuff that is happening down here as a way of getting people interested in and thinking about the current state of things in this region.

The focus will definitely be on indie artists and businesses from all over, though, so if you've got suggestions for future posts, I'd love to hear them. I can't guarantee a post about everything, but I will definitely at least check out every site and consider it. I've been keeping a list of websites and artists that I'd like to post about in the future.

If you have any other feedback or comments about the site, I'd love to hear those as well!

Rat's Reading

Now that my reading blog is one year old (meaning I haven't gotten bored with keeping it up to date), I figure it's time to give it some promotion. All it contains (aside from occasional administrative entries) is book reviews. Books reviewed are an eclectic set.

Original web site is Rat's Reading.

The Livejournal syndication is ratreading.
