Last Call For January Birthdays! And More!

Hello everyone!

With the new magazine set to roll out shortly (see Countdown in the right sidebar), and Debb and her editor working very hard to put out a top-notch premiere issue, I’m putting out a “last call”.  No, not one to fill up on your favorite drinks before the bars close.  🙂  I am wanting to make sure I didn’t miss out on anyone’s January birthday.  If you have not contacted me yet with news of your birthday or someone else’s January birthday, please write me today:  stantonsunshine@gmail.com.

And believe it or not, I am already laying out the February issue.   If you have ANYTHING you want to share (the sky is the limit), contact me at stantonsunshine@gmail.com with your suggestions or proposals, and I will be sure to consider them.   I consider this blog and my future magazine to be my community.  I hope you feel comfortable to call it YOUR community as well…that is why I look forward to hearing from you.  🙂  The more our community interacts with each other, the more interesting our community will be…

Sincerely,

“The Courteous Curator”

(see the post so-named for an explanation)

The Conclusion of the series, “The Adventures of Debb’s Blog…”

Ahhh.  The Great Launch.  It’s coming soon on January 4th!   I’m still keeping The Sunshine Factor blog, but it will published within an online magazine, called Stanton Sunshine.  This is where my writing trail has brought me, and it feels like a very nice place!

How will this be different than a blog, you might be asking.  This one will be a community effort of like-minded individuals willing to share their particular kind of sunshine to make up one big place where everyone can participate.   But why participate?  To give and receive emotional support in a world that seems to be getting darker by the day.   You can be published here if you want to be! You can submit artwork, or that of your children or grandchildren.  Like a great recipe?  Please share with the author of the magazine, me, and I will look into getting it out to the community.  Prefer to just read and enjoy?  That’s great, too, but hopefully we can each get the word out to our friends about Stanton Sunshine.

I’ve always believed that to be a museum curator would be an awesome job.  I could decide what would be displayed and what wouldn’t.  I could gather friends together for a good time while enjoying art (and in this case — art AND literature). I would be hot on the trail, and new finds would pepper my museum.  So actually, I can be a curator after all – just in magazine format.  And in a community format, where all people are loved and welcome and can find a positive spin on their lives.

Together we can be strong — that is my motto.  This is how we will begin the new year.  (Start now by signing up for my new Facebook page:  www.facebook.com/stantonsunshine.  I will keep you abreast of the latest developments and trailmarkers on this Facebook page as well as on this blog.)

More soon!
