Introducing Conversations from indy100: Your voice - amplified
Conversations from indy100 Community Guidelines

Today, we're announcing the launch of Conversations from indy100 - a new platform for people to share their thoughts and experiences in a meaningful way.

Sometimes what you have to say doesn't fit into a social media post, especially when you want to have a more considered, nuanced discussion. This is a space where you can have exactly that kind of conversation.

You can now submit posts on the subjects you care about, that you believe people should be reading about. From COVID-19 to the US election, Black Lives Matter to Pride, we want to hear from people who have something to say.

But it's not just politics. Maybe you want to tell the world about an easter egg you spotted in a new TV show or explain exactly why you love your favorite band so much. This is your chance to write about what you care about.

The best posts will be shared across indy100 and our social media accounts. Outstanding and frequent authors also have the chance to be featured on The Independent, one of the world's biggest quality news brands, and may even be invited to write separately for them.

Sign up here, write your first post, and start the Conversations.

Once again Peta (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) - a charity that claims to protect animals, is pushing for Staffordshire Bull Terriers - a loyal, loving family dog, to be eradicated.

In 2018, during a government consultation of the Dangerous Dog Act 1991, the charity called for Staffies to be added to it claiming, at the time, that it was, 'best for the dog.' If they had been, it would have made it illegal to own the breed in the UK.

The challenges of summertime parenting - from brain freeze to sandy cars

The best time of year to be a parent, just don't forget sunscreen

I love the sun more now than I ever did because parenting gets a bit easier in nice weather. But of course, the lighter nights and sunshine bring their own challenges too.

My four-year-old says the only thing he doesn't like about summer is brain freeze, which indicates how many ice lollies are consumed in this house. I made my own last summer from sugar-free cordial and may have to do the same again this year because they requested ice lollies for breakfast and haven't stopped asking.
