I started blogging in 2010 as “lizard” at 4 and 20 Blackbirds. In 2015 the absentee landlord of that blog decided my criticism of Democrats wasn’t in line with his own political brainwashing, so I was kicked off the blog and started Reptile Dysfunction, where I continue to express my opinions about political corruption.
Up until late 2020 I was writing posts under the pseudonym “William Skink”. I am now writing my “reluctant journalism” posts under my real name, Travis Mateer. Creative content, like poetry, will still be authored by William Skink. You can learn more about William and his fictional home, “Zula”, at his Substack page.
For other ways to support my work, please consider purchasing my book of poems, titled WELCOME TO THE COVAXICON, at the Zootown Arts Community Center artist shop. Hard copies are also sold at the Loose Moose in Missoula (219 N. Higgins in downtown Missoula).
Another way to help out is a one time or recurring donation. See the donation box below.
Thank you for reading.
