Hey There, Strangers

It has been a while. Hey there, all 3 readers! How ya doin’?!

The end of the year was a big ‘ole mess for me, so excuse my lack of any content since October. My bad. However, I’ve taken some time to think about this site and how I want it to go into 2018, so let’s discuss.

I was trying to have an article a day which, for me currently being a one person operation, isn’t feasible. I couldn’t keep up and looking back, I wasn’t happy with a lot of the stuff I put out last year.

I still want the lifestyle and representation angle to stay, but with it comes a new schedule and some new content ideas.

I begin the Disney College Program at the end of the month, so there will be some content from the eyes of a DCPer. I have many things written/ideas saved thus far for entertainment reviews, thinkpieces, etc. that I am very excited to share. Fashion will still play a big part, but with larger pieces. I really want to try and make some video content, but that’s more of a hope for the year, so maybe expect some of that, too.

Starting this week, my schedule will be a new post every Tuesday and Friday. This way, we can get into the swing of things without me stressing and putting out a 3 word piece paired with a video.

I would LOVE to have more voices on this site, as that was the goal the entire time. With more voices involved, we can have more content. PLEASE send me samples of your work and ideas for content to disneybop@gmail.com. I want to hear your thoughts on Disney fashion trends, on your representation issues with Disney films, with your thoughts on whatever!

So, that’s the plan. If you have ideas for content or what you want to see, comment below or send an email to the above address. I’m thrilled to be back and until tomorrow, Life Live Magically!

Welcome to disneyBOP!

Welcome to disneyBOP, a new website under the LaughingPlace umbrella. I am also excited to announce that I will be creative director!

So, here’s the gist: Some articles I’ve written in the past have received such positive feedback that it made sense to expand on them. Things like the independent Disney shop community and Disney Channel articles warrant more discussion, as they are larger topics than we at LP have room for. On top of that, I was inspired by Teen Vogue’s ability to pair lifestyle and fashion with pieces discussing representation.

That’s the goal with disneyBOP. We hope to bring you coverage of new Disney fashion trends and collections, lifestyle pieces (like crafts, home decor, etc.), entertainment (music playlists, Disney Channel, Shondaland), and items on representation. We want to be able to talk about things like LGBTQ rights, feminism, racial equality, etc. all through the lens of Disney. Think about honest discussions about “gay LeFou” or the Maui costume debacle. We hope to offer constructive criticism when needed, along with congratulations when Disney excels.

Overall, we hope to allow you to Live Life Magically.

I am so excited for you the see the site and what we have in store, but we are also looking for writers. The Disney blogging community needs diverse voices from all walks of life. I would love to have someone living on a Native American reservation giving their real thoughts on Pocahontas. I would love getting a member of the LGBTQ community discussing Disney’s commitment to helping the Pulse nightclub monument come to fruition. I would love a ton of college students sending in how they add Disney to their personal wardrobe. I want all races, sexualities, genders, backgrounds represented.

If you have any desire to write for disneyBOP, send your pitches to disneybop@gmail.com.

We are looking for TV recappers, fashion bloggers, lifestyle gurus, crafters, and op-ed writers. Also, if you have an idea for something that you think would work great on the site that isn’t listed, send it our way! Be sure to send a pitch for the article you’d like to write and some examples of your writing!

I am so excited to share the site with you and create our community and hope you join in the fun. Be sure to follow us everywhere @disneyBOP.
