I’ve added a few things to my portfolio. Can you find them?

Hint: go to the Portfolio tab. 

For your trouble: here’s one of my favourite songs at the moment.

Annabel by the Duhks

Annabel, Annabel, where did you go?
I’ve looked high and Ive looked low
I’ve looked low and Ive looked high
Tell me where does the spirit go when you die?
Oh where does the spirit go when you die?

I have packed your satin gloves and lace
All the pictures of your pretty face
And I kept the ones of you on skates
And a picture from your wedding day

Annabel Annabel way up high
Are you kissing the starry birds in the sky?
Will you come and visit us down below?
Oh Annabel Annabel where did you go
Annabel where did you go?

You will miss the humming of the spring
And the winter wont mean anything
And the summer is a lonesome dale
I am lost without you Annabel
I have lost my faith in everything
Annabel Annabel are you free?
Will you wrap me in your legacy?
In a blanket with your sweet perfume
I am always thinking thoughts of you.

My friends are awesome

I’m super glad that of the millions of blogs out there, y’all are following my blog—you’re blowing up my ego to an almost insufferable size. So to counteract, I want to share with you some pretty ding dang darn radical (as in awesome, not crazy) blogs belonging to my friends:


I am a writer who rambles. Go figure. This blog is {mostly} about books, publishing, and all that fascinates me in between! —Rosie


Well, well well. Aren’t you lucky to have stumbled upon my blog! As you’ll soon learn, I’m judgmental, and a bit of an asshole. Love it or hate it, these posts are my unfiltered reactions to popular books and movies. Good luck, and enjoy!—Kendra


I am a creative writing student at Capilano University; lover of words, art, fashion, travel, the outdoors and life. Available for copy and freelance writing. —Mikhaila

Kate Scallion

I am an editor and writer based out of Victoria, British Columbia, although I’ll always call Nova Scotia home. When I’m not working, I enjoy being outside, running, biking, and skiing; baking and eating cookies (and other food, too); reading; travelling; and indulging in cheesy television shows. —Kate

Pete Kohut

Over the years his drawings and paintings (oil on canvas) have moved through a series of stylistic and theoretical explorations without ever veering away from a distinctive, highly recognizable personal aesthetic that has been, perhaps, most deeply concerned with representation of the human form. —Pete

Hi.  I’m Sydney Jane Barnes.  Or just Sydney. I am a 24-year-old self-taught designer/illustrator from the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia. I tend to do things that I love regardless of anything else. —Sydney


Design junkie. Book hoarder. Local music supporter. Keen volunteer. Whitecaps FC member. Half-marathon runner. Outdoors enthusiast. Vancouver devotee. Sartorial opiner. SadMag Web Editor. MPub candidate. Wields red pen with panache. Amanda

I create ebooks and websites. I build marketing campaigns. I have strong opinions about publishing and technology. Hi, my name is Alex Sutcliffe. —Alex

Alexandra Forman Artistry doesn’t have a biography or an about me page, but take it from me—she’s an incredibly talented makeup artist. And since she would never say “HEY HIRE ME”, I’m going to say “Hey, hire her.”

These are my friends. They’re all talented, they’re all cool. Be kind, rewind (and/or follow).

I changed it up a bit.

I like to keep things fresh, so I switched up the look of my blog a bit. Everything is still accessible, but you should probably have a look around to see what else you can see. Did you know I have some of my old articles from the Virden Empire-Advance posted? And the redesigned cover for The Shining that I did for the MPUB? There are even some pretty decent photographs, if I do say so myself. Seek and you shall find, my friends.

For your trouble, I present to you my favourite Hump Day song:
