About: Founded in 2010, P.O.V. is an editorial-commentary e-zine focusing on current events, politics, issues, trends, celebrities and pop culture.
It is written by women for an almost exclusively female audience.
P.O.V. began as a creative exercise for its founder, Melina Druga. At the time, it was a blog entitled Fantastic Fabulous Mom and focused primarily on motherhood and slice-of-life pieces, all with a commentary slant.
Eventually, Melina decided to differentiate herself from other blogs and move away from the dreaded "mommy blog" label. The topics of posts began shifting to appeal to a broader audience.
Fantastic Fabulous Mom was renamed P.O.V. to better reflect the blog's focus. P.O.V. now focuses not just on parenting but also current events, politics, social issues, trends, celebrity news and entertainment reviews.
In late 2011, P.O.V. began accepting guest blog posts, attracting a whole new group of writers seeking to express their P.O.V.
P.O.V. has slowly evolved into an e-zine. Early in 2012, contributing writers Dana Arevalo, Rhonda Ramsey, Jessica Snow and Shaunda Wenger were added. Each writer has brought her unique voice to P.O.V., and the popularity of P.O.V. has been steadily increasing.
In November 2012, P.O.V. launched a fundraising campaign with the hopes of raising enough funds to become a true magazine. Unfortunately, we failed to raise the money necessary, and P.O.V. ceased publishing on Jan. 11, 2013.
P.O.V. accepts comments on posts less than 60 days old. Comments are moderated.
