Slut Schemes and Machinations: A Letter From The Bitch-In-Chief

23 February 2016 by 4 Comments

Shit’s been going down, y’all. Good shit, hopefully.

During our relaunch in October, I basically wore myself out. I pushed myself to the limit and then I was broken for a little while. (Mental illness, yaaaaaay.) I wasn’t the only one struggling during the holiday season; it’s a hard-as-fuck time of year for a lot of people, so we lay low for awhile and tried to regroup. We wrote a lot about music–mainly Laura, who is now our main lady for the Weekend Listening column. She is good at music so you should probably tune into that if you also like music.

I also finally talked myself into not trying to be everything to this website. I have a team of people here who are capable and trustworthy and who want to help me do shit. I didn’t want to ask for help for a long time since we don’t make money (and may never, idk). It’s a labor of love and you can only ask so much labor of your loves.

Then, I found myself moving house. Buying a house, for the first time in my life.

(Shit’s still in rough shape.)

As we went through the process, I started to get a better feel for the energy I have and the energy I don’t have. I started realizing that I was pretty garbage at keeping a schedule and getting posts edited and also trying to do all the other things that I wanted to do behind the scenes at IB, not to mention in my real life. I had plans and dreams and ideas and I needed help, dammit.

So I tapped sj, who has been my righthand lady for ages. I asked, hey–do you want to become the managing editor and do the editing and scheduling stuff that I have been failing miserably at? Cos I know you would do the best job. And she was like, ‘kay.

So, say hello to your new managing editor. You may know her as sj here, you may know her as @popqueenie on Twitter. You may know her from when she ran a blog called Snobbery or from the drinkalongs she hosts, but I’m 500% sure you know and love her already. She’s already hit the ground running and will be bringing you new content when we get back from hiatus.

(Oh right, we’ve been on hiatus a bit. Because holidays and moving and seasonal depression and any number of other things.)

We do have more plans to tell you about in the future, but we’re going to keep mum about the specifics until we get them all hashed out. In the meanwhile, we’re still here, slutting it up in the book world.

Love, kisses, and happy endings of all sorts,
Susie
