heads-up for UK people with overdrafts
So, the UK financial regulator tried to simplify the way banks charge people for overdrafts and make it fairer. No more daily fees, no more punitive fees for unarranged overdrafts. Just one clearly advertised interest rate for all overdrafts. The changes happen in April.
BUT, because banks are bastards, they are almost all planning to set that rate at around 40%. If your account spends most of its time overdrawn, this will really affect you.
The Money Saving Expert blog has a guide to who's announced which rate and also info about possible options for switching bank and getting a bit of respite that way. If you're permanently overdrawn, it's really worth doing something before April.
looking for a sensitivity reader (paid!)
Currently looking for a sensitivity reader for a ~1,200 word short story. The issue at hand is a fantasy analogy based on a real-world trope that impacts Black communities, particularly Black women, in the US.
This would be a PAID GIG, so if you're interested, DM or email me ([email protected]) me with your bio/rates/timeframes/etc. Also happy to answer further questions, as required.
(Retoots also appreciated!)

Hi Mastodon, could you take a look at these very beautiful #handmade #crochet blankets, made by my son J. *Proud parent emoji*
J is gay & trans & trying to raise money by selling his works of crochet art. He is working part time & does loads of community activism, so I offered to help by putting these up for him.
Reasonable offers are welcome. These are large & take many hours work. If you are interested & want to know more, let me know.

This researcher is actually my metamour so I can attest that she is careful and attentive and a part of the community she's studying.
The $50 will be in the form of one Amazon gift card or two $25 Barnes & Noble ones.
To anyone asking me how to get these - these will be available in my shop very soon! I just need to count them all up and stuff (there's a lot so it will take a while) stay tuned!
non emergency funding for love sick queer
Its not a huge deal. I mean, it is for me. My long term boyfriend (y'know, KJ) was here last September and I've been really miserable since he left. I've been slowly saving up to go visit him, but I had to quit my job as a baker because of illness, so its.. super slow.
Anyway, this is just an ask that if anyone has any spare and wants to enable me, love sick and silly, I'd appreciate the help. I need like, $300 more? 🌻
straightedge, drugs, reactionaries 1/13
I've been on the fediverse for a long time, and I've never seen anyone talking about the straightedge subculture of the late 20th century, and by extension the decentralization and de-punkification of it in our now early 21st century. But I felt like offering my perspective on it can help some people contexualize things, or maybe just be novel to hear about, so I'll say this: straightedge was a reactionary force within the punk scene.
