We love our readers! And we want to thank them. This is why we'll be doing an on-going roundup of the sites that link back to us — mostly because we want to link back at them (quid pro quo!) and because we find it amusing to see how our stuff is making it into the world. Like, for instance, Luna Luna on Teen Vogue? Cool! Luna Luna referred by someone at Bing? Weird. Who uses Bing? But that's ok. We'll take it.
Plus, it's a lot safer than releasing the search terms that lead people to our site: halloween sex poem and manifesting scam are just a few.
For now, here's roundup #1:
This week, The Huffington Post's Trends Editor Jenna Amatulli penned a piece, "What I Learned As A Straight Woman At An All-Female Sex Party" that linked to our own — about Skirt Club (which, if you have not yet, please check out). Thanks, Jenna! We agree that Skirt Club is amazing. And thanks to Skirt Club, for sharing our piece.
Kind of LOVING this awesome shout-out about anxiety & horror films in Teen Vogue. (Like, our entire editorial staff's teen selves are collectively freaking right now). It was also syndicated over at MSN. Yay! Check out the article here.
A bunch of witches talking over at MetaFilter. Thanks, loves.
Trista Edward's amazing list of Luna Luna content.
Joanna C. Valente — our managing editor — talking about gender and labels over at The Berry. You can read her wonderful piece there!
Oh and thanks, Entropy!
Thanks to Boston Accent Lit — we like you too!
Lit Hub on inclusivity.
Emily Neie, who is FABULOUS, has a blog called The Literateur, and it's about everyday magic. She kindly wrote about us!
She writes, "Luna Luna Magazine is not a magazine specifically about magick, but they have a wonderful occult section that often includes personal essays from witches, historical essays about the Salem witch trials, or features on people who live in close community with magick and alternative belief systems. I've been reading them regularly for about four months, and I'm particularly fond of their confessional style pieces in the "Dark" section. It's free to access, and a great way to discover new writers and artists to follow on Twitter or Instagram."
