Sometimes It's Okay To Submit (To The Riot) (Hi, Everyone)

Well, okay.  So, last Friday this Tumblr had around 87 followers.  After an explosion this weekend, I’m well aware that this post is going to reach over 300 readers. 

I’ll be honest, that’s a little intimidating.

So, um.  Hi.

ANYWAY, on to the point of this post: I would LOVE to be able to use The Riot as a means of getting out as much information as possible to readers.  I can only cover so much of the internet in one day and I’m sure there are events/happenings/concerts/articles you have that you would like to share.  Have a ‘zine you wanna promote?  A band playing a benefit show?  A rally/protest you’re organizing?  THAT SHIT IS IMPORTANT.

So I’m inviting all of you to feel free to send me shit through either the “Submit” or “Ask Me” page or you can e-mail me at theriotmag at gmail dot com.  I’ll do my best to help share what you’ve got.  I know I don’t have a huge reader base right now, but it’s something and I’d like to do what I can to help. 

So, yes.  Feel free to send stuff in.

And…yeah.  Hi, again.  Hope you enjoy your stay.
