Welcome

Hi, I’m Jess Mahler. Thanks for stopping by!

You may know me from Polyamory on Purpose where I’ve been blogging about polyamory for over five years. I’m afraid I burned out pretty hard on that blog and finally had to admit I’m just done with it for the time being. All the posts are hosted here, and from time to time I’ll go back and edit or update one. But probably nothing new for the foreseeable future.

I am still writing Polyamory on Purpose books. The latest, Safer Sex for the Non-Monogamous, is now available.

In the meantime, I’ll be blogging about some other stuff.

Specifically, I’m going to use this blog as a kind of journal about my Lifetime Resolutions and progress thereto. As part of that, I’ll be talking about my writing process and progress, Cuil Press (the indie publisher I helped start), sustainable living, communal living, personal growth, managing cross-country moves, autistic living, life with mental illness, life with kids, indoor gardening, building intentional families, and, well, God knows what else.

I’ll also occasionally indulge in one of my Long Winded Essays about random subjects that catch my interest
