Check out Some New Trend… today

Some New Trend stickersBlog fiction has remained, as described in its Wikipedia entry, an “isolated… fringe activity” area of the blogosphere. Well, there are a few writers here in Birmingham, AL that are hoping to change that with their latest collaborative effort, Some New Trend

This full length fiction story blog also doubles as a collection of posts in which contributors review books, music, and movies geared toward young adults. The site started in February, with the first chapter of the story being posted earlier this month. They have a presence on Facebook, MySpace and Twitter.

Elisa over at Bike Skirt did a write-up earlier this month on SNT and some of the folks contributing to it. After you’re finished checking it out, go over there and read the first two chapters (or at least consider supporting them by buying some schwag)!

What’s BiCiCoop?

We’re hoping that you heard about last week’s fundraising effort for BiciCoop on Valentine’s Day. We’re also hoping you’ve heard of this effort born in Birmingham’s cycling community. If you haven’t yet, you’ve got a chance next week (February 26 at 7 p.m.) to learn some more about what they do courtesy of a community interest meeting at Nomad Supply Shop (916 23rd Street South). This may finally be Birmingham’s equivalent to Bikestations on the West Coast.

If you’re still looking for more information, how about checking out this interview with co-founder Elisa Munoz courtesy of Bike Commuters from February 4 and the blog worked on by Elisa and Anna Carrigan, called Bike Skirt.
