New collaboration…

New collaboration…

I’ve always been sucker for getting involved in new projects, ever since I started blogging. 
Whether it’s taking part in Stream of consciousness Saturday Sunday, making up groan-inducing puns for One liner Wednesday, co-writing an ongoing space opera, or helping to curate a weekly interactive photography challenge, it has never taken much persuading to get me fired up about new ideas.

So the idea of working with a team of fellow writers on a completely new platform, on a blog dedicated to short fiction, well, it was an opportunity to good to pass up.

Just over a year ago, whilst idly scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed, I spotted a post from a site called FoulEnt, with a somewhat inflammatory but amusing headline, (I forget exactly which one it was, but as I have since discovered, that description could be applied to most of their output) so I clicked the bait and read the post. It was hilarious, I do remember that, so I liked their page and have followed the anarchic, sweary, laddish, occasionally near the knuckle but always entertaining posts ever since.

Soon after I read that first post, I sent a friend request to Frank King, (also known by his considerably more offensive, four letter pseudonym) one of FoulEnt’s small team of writers, and we immediately hit it off, sharing a similar sense of humour, a love of words and writing and a talent for talking bollocks.

It wasn’t long before I discovered that “Frank King” is in fact a sort of gestalt entity, made up of at least two different people (who, rather confusingly for me at first, all use the same messenger account) and that “he” was interested in opening a profile on the relatively new blogging platform, Niume.

The site gives writers, photographers and creatives in many other spheres of interest access to a ready made community of fellow users, with whom to share your work (the categories or interests on Niume are split up into a number of these Spheres, to enable you to target the right audience for your content, then you can follow whatever combination of spheres you choose, which then appear in your home feed, much like the WordPress reader) with the added bonus that the pages are pre-loaded with unobtrusive advertising, meaning you can make money simply from generating page views.
Each post must have a picture included, for use as a thumbnail, making the site very eye-catching and all you need to set up a profile is an e-mail address, which we have now done, the blog going live a couple of weeks ago.

I should warn you, (unnecessarily and rather belatedly, if you have already checked the FoulEnt link above) that there is adult humour and strong language in a lot of the posts, but they are also very well written and great fun to read. So far I have only contributed stories that were already written and published on this blog, as I’ve been too busy with promoting The Wrong Stuff recently to do anything else, but the Franks and co from FoulEnt have been coming up with some real gems and I really do recommend you go over and check out their work; it’s a totally different kettle of fish to their usual LadMag style and I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised, not to mention impressed with the quality of their storytelling abilities.

Oh, and what was the name that was chosen for this new venture? Well, you know the sort of books you find in the smallest room in the house, the ones a considerate host will, if you’re lucky, provide for a comfortable read as you unburden yourself? What would you call that type of easily digestible, fun-size literary chunks?

How about Toileterature?

Yep, that’s us, so click the link or the logo above and come over to visit our lovely new Niume page and let Toileterature entertain you.

      Cheers, it’s a bit of fun, but we’ve already generated a fair amount of interest (The Franks are masters of self-promotion) and it’s a good looking platform.

    Sounds interesting. I’ll come and have a look as soon as I have a chance. 🙂
