Ever feel that there’s so much going on in animal rights that it’s impossible to keep up? Or that you miss all the useful information on facebook and end up reading nothing but posts from lolcats? Well, we have the answer you’ve been waiting for — the resource that is going to get you, and keep you, up to speed.
When Our Hen House expanded to an online magazine last month (was it seriously only last month?!), I promised that from time to time I’d point out some of our fab new features. We already told you about our new This Animal On This Day section, which encourages you to upload photos of an animal (please keep those coming — paying particular attention to wildlife and farmed animals). Each day, a different animal with a compelling story is featured on our homepage, warming our hearts, and sometimes breaking them.
Today I want to remind you (or perhaps inform you) about our breaking news ticker, which you can find at the tippy top of our website. Since my darling Mariann is the brains behind the ticker, I can tell you without hesitation that this little nook of our online magazine is like a third person in our relationship, constantly being considered and ruminated upon, kvelled about and doted on. The news ticker is where we publish breaking news from the world of animal rights and veganism. Some of what winds up there also makes it to the popular news section of our podcast. The items are updated constantly, and we like to think of this area as a go-to place for finding out what’s up in AR. I know you’re busy, but challenge yourself to read at least one AR-related news item each day.
I hope that you bookmark Our Hen House on your browser, and visit us daily. We’re unendingly spouting out content, and we hope that you are on the other end consuming it.
