Über Mich

punmonger, content-monkey & perennial over-sharer

Hello my name is Natalie. Sometimes I like to pretend I’m a Proper Writer & chuck articles at people. I’ve been published on & offline (do we really still differentiate between print & digital?) in The IndependentThe Sunday TimesNew StatesmanSkeptic Magazine & Liberal Conspiracy. I mostly write about feminism, pop culture & politics. One time I sent a piece to The Guardian’s Comment is Free but they told me it was “a bit too meta for CiF”. I thought that this was the funniest thing anyone had ever said.

If you want me to write a thing you can find me at natfguest[at]gmail[dot]com, although you’ll probably get a faster response by tweeting me @unfortunatalie

My day job is in copywriting & digital marketing; these days I can mostly be found writing about publishing technology & content management over at Ixxus. They’re good kids; I don’t hate it.

I run the BBCQT Tweet-a-long (AS FEATURED IN THE LONDONIST AND TOTAL POLITICS) at Hackney Attic, an evening of politics, twitter and beer, with appearances from comedians and political speakers.   It’s kind of niche & was basically an accident.

I am interested in: left-field music, left-wing politics, the internet, digital rights, social media, feminism, gender, critical theory, webcomics, fandom, queer space, etymology, wordplay, puns, anomalous psychology, quantum physics, technology, publishing, subculture, alternative comedy,  sleep disorders, mental health, scandinavia, germanic languages, pop culture, pop psychology, pop music, fairweather freeganism, protest tourism, imposter syndrome, cups of tea, buffy the vampire slayer, wine.

I dig: thinking too much, drinking too much and being thoroughly inappropriate in almost all situations.

I can: play the spoons, type at over 100wpm and deliver a lamb.

    Hi Loved the critique on DIY erotic drama. I struggled to climax on reading the words alone but had a handy 1965 bra catalogue to hand which helped. I may send you some nonsense of my own. I have O level English grade C BTW so please be kind! Following on Twitter (baa baa), Steve

  5. Loved your post on ‘tiny man erotica’ – we talked about it on the podcast (and said nice things about your blog). Link here if you care for a listen: http://www.murphy.no.com/?p=1199

  6. At the risk of being totally last-century – any chance you can put the address of your RSS feed on here, so I can subscribe?

  7. Awesome blogs, you’ve got a really appealing style! i normally get a bit bored reading blogs but your writing is very entertaining, nice one :D

  8. Do you like Grace Petrie? You should definitely like Grace Petrie.
