Welcome to Neon Moonbeam!
Hey!! I’m excited to kick this thing off! Thank you to all the people who have been following on Instagram and supporting Neon Moonbeam before our launch. But we’re live now, and it’s only going to get infinitely more awesome from here.
As a quick intro, here’s a bit from the “About” page:
Neon Moonbeam is an alternative fashion and lifestyle blog that shines a spotlight on indie artists and businesses. We support the odd, the off-beat, the freethinkers, and those who aren’t afraid to break a few rules, and let their freak flags fly. We decorate ourselves, support our fellow creative souls, and embrace the strange and unusual.
If that sounds good to you, you’re home.
That’s just what it is on the surface, like our “elevator speech” if you will…
If you look a little deeper, you’ll find a place that cares about things like raising awareness for things like mental health and self-love, as well as fighting things like racism and sexism. It’s meant to be a safe place for everyone. The goal is to build a community of people who support each other.
Getting too deep for ya? (never!)
Humans are multi-dimensional, and this online magazine is run by humans, for humans. Not robots.
With that said, since Neon Moonbeam isn’t just a one-trick unicorn, here is a run-down of the topics you can choose from…
Art & Artists
Creative inspiration. Artist spotlights. Want to be featured or know an awesome artist who deserves the spotlight? Contact us!
Alternative beauty looks. Cruelty-free beauty brands. The best products at the best prices. Alternative fashion looks. Fashion inspiration. The looks at the best prices.
Astrology. Numerology. Spiritual stuff (we’re non-denominational).
Out and About
Featuring small businesses in and around Kent, Ohio USA (Northeast Ohio). If you’re a creative and cool small business located somewhere else, that’s cool too! If you want your businesses featured, contact us.
Deep stuff. Stuff that affects us in our personal lives. Real shit. Do you have questions or want to share your real life stories (you can remain anonymous)? Contact us.
Who runs this place?
I never wanted Neon Moonbeam to focus on me personally, but I guess you probably want to know who’s talking to you! Here’s a semi-formal introduction:
My name is Angela McElhiney, and I live in Kent, OH with my son, boyfriend, and his son. 🎔 I’ve been working as a copywriter for 7 years and doing graphic design and art as a hobby for way longer than that. I have no regrets in life, and I believe there are no coincidences. I’m a workaholic, as long as it’s something I enjoy! A dream of mine has always been to create a magazine or collaborative blog, because I love to write, and I adore online publishing.
Have a question for me? Email me.
As of right now, we are working with 2 print-on-demand services to sell our original designs as apparel and accessories! Help support Neon Moonbeam (help us continue to make it better and better!) and wear cute stuff. Win/win.
Go to the SHOP PAGE to see the shirts available. We will have lots more in the future, including handmade clothing items. Stay tuned.
We also have a Red Bubble shop with stationery, stickers and other cool stuff.
We’ll have even more stuff in the future, like jewelry and other accessories!
Write for Us
Have a story to tell?
You can submit an article for the Real Life topic. We’re looking for personal experiences and your thoughts on relevant real life issues.
We are looking for guest writers, as well as regular columnists to write on a certain topic every month.
This is different from getting featured as an artist or brand/shop. Guest writers or columnists get all the glory as the author of that post (Or go anonymous! It’s up to you.).
This place is brand new, and we have a very meager start up capital, so we can’t afford to pay our writers yet….
The more you refer people to your posts, the more traffic we get. The more traffic we get, the more we will all benefit as a whole.
Interested? Go to our submissions page to find out more.
