Street Artist

Street Artist – Pixbay

The ache that settled in

his kneecaps, forgotten.

His artist hands steadily

captured his prophetic

dreams that transitioned

into nightmares, depending

on the happy hour drink

served at some low-class bar.

Tequila brought visions

of the Messiah opening

arms wide to welcome

a drunkard home, forgiven.

Jack Daniels filled his sleeping

mind with childhood, a sister.

He ignored people gathering

around him on the sidewalk.

Money tossed in a western hat

would buy more bourbon, warm

sheets for a night in a cold motel.

It wasn’t that he didn’t appreciate

contributions from admirers.

His focus was to put his thoughts

on paper, rid his head of noise.

Earn Cash Back with Ibotta

This is by no means a get rich quick scheme.  It is however a way to earn extra money on items you purchase everyday from stores.

Ibotta has certain items listed such as a gallon of milk (any brand), a dozen eggs (any brand), and Dove Shampoo. These are just examples.  When you purchase the items, you open the app, select each item you purchased, and then scan the QR Code or take a photo of your receipt. It’s that easy! The money is applied to your account.

The payout starts at $20 so you can have cash sent to you via PayPal or you can choose from a number of gift cards, ex: Walmart, iTunes, Amazon, and other online and offline stores.

What’s great about this app is that it normally has a rebate for any item so even if you don’t purchase any of the products they have listed, you can still earn cash for buying anything.  Also, if you link Ibotta to your Facebook account, any friends you have that use Ibotta become your teammates and you can earn bonuses that way.

Another way to get money added to your account is through referrals.  When someone uses your referral link or code, you earn $5 (sometimes more) once they scan their first receipt.  The person using your referral link/code gets a $10 bonus for signing up putting them halfway to the $20 payout.

Reaching the $20 is pretty easy because Ibotta offers rebates on items most people purchase anyway and the brand name stores are listed. They also allow you to receive cash back on purchases made at select online stores such as Amazon and Sephora. They even offer rebates on alcohol beverages and wine.

So far I have used $40 and selected Walmart gift cards because I shop there often. I’m heading to my next $20 now.

Here is my referral link in case anyone wants to try Ibotta.  Let me know in the comments if you are an Ibotta user or if you give it a try and what you think of the app. I can say that they do pay out and they make it very easy to reach the payout mark.

You can go to https://ibotta.com/r/cqlhuob

to sign up and get started now earning money. There are so many false leads to earning money from home that I wanted to share a way you truly can earn money.  While you won’t be quitting your day job using Ibotta, who doesn’t want to earn cash back on groceries and household items that we have to buy anyway?

44 Feminist Literary Magazines & Journals

Trish Hopkinson

In past years for National Women’s Equality Day, I spent some time compiling a list of feminist lit mags and journals and have recently updated the list! You can support these organizations by sharing, reading, submitting to, or donating. Submit your feminist writing and/or contribute in any way you can:

  • share on social media
  • read them regularly
  • submit using the tip jar options when possible
  • donate when appropriate if possible

Feminist Lit Mags and Journals

What is a feminist lit mag? A feminist lit mag or journal publishes writing that supports equality across all gender identities and acknowledges the lack thereof. They try to support and encourage work from minorities, such as women, LGBTQ, and people of color.

Per my interview with The Fem in 2015, I personally define feminism as “being fair and just. Feminism is not an ideology that should be used to condemn any one…

Dirty Villains Anthology
Release Date: October 24th
Photog: BT Urruela
Models: Julie Mick-Schalm, Chelsea Kristine and Reagan Hollow
Cover Design: T.E. Black Designs

>BLURB<<
Ask yourself, what makes a villain? Is it a skewed moral code or lack thereof completely? Is it the motivation of darkness burning within their soul or is it how they choose to embrace it? To get what their black hearts desire, they may have to give in to temptation and consume the light coming their way.

Follow your favorite villains as they finally get a chance to unveil their side of the story. You may find the heroines painted a bit more vexing than you recall. As you take this journey, allow your mind to remain open and your thoughts might just surprise you.

You may find, you’re a villain, too.

We won’t judge you, if you don’t judge us.
