Still mostly taking time off around here -- particularly from the boards -- but wanted to toss you users a few new links at the main site in case you wanted/needed them.

Since so many of you are so helpful to others, I made the "cheatsheet" we volunteers use to easily link users to articles publicly viewable this time, and that's right here: http://www.scarleteen.com/message_board_cheatsheet

You'll see it's alphabetized, and all you do to make a link is cut and paste those in UBB code, starting with the "[" under the bold title, and ending with the "]" at the end of each link.

We also have a new page for information on the book: where to get it, new reviews, etc. here: http://www.scarleteen.com/article/read/all_about_s_e_x_the_scarleteen_book

Too, we upgraded the previous main site advice section, so it's now form based, staffed with four different sexperts (including myself), and available even for people who aren't registered users, so for those who want it, that's here: http://www.scarleteen.com/article/advice and the form for submitting a question lives here: http://www.scarleteen.com/question

Lastly, there is a pile of new articles that went up with the upgrade, and those are:
- Hey, Boyfriend! Male Reproductive Choices
- Me & HSV
- Reciprocity, Reloaded
- What is Feminist Sex Education?

And our anatomy articles also have new illustrations from the book to make things clearer, including one of the only side-view female anatomy illustrations to actually include ('bout bleedin' time) the internal clitoris.

Don't forget! I've also now made it very easy to submit a first-person piece to Scarleteen -- http://www.scarleteen.com/article/words/in_your_own_words_how_to_speak_up -- and I'd love to publish you.

Back to housecleaning (which likely seems like a bummer of a thing to do on a mini-vacation, but I find that seeing the floor really is quite calming, even for a slob like me)!

Just to clarify, when you say first-person piece, does it have to be in first-person narrative? Or can it be third-person, so long as it is something from personal experience?
