Rule of Thumb is a freeform online magazine that features content on a wide variety of topics.

These topics include, but are not limited to: art, music, literature, sports, politics, current events, travel and work.

We will consider publishing anything that isn't stupid, and welcome reviews, lists, essays, memoir and original poetry and fiction.

Rule of Thumb is geared toward people who would occasionally like to read something interesting, funny and with a point of view. We believe that there are a lot of interesting people out there, with interesting things to say, and that it would be nice to provide a forum for them to share their thoughts and discuss the issues of the day.

The opinions expressed on Rule of Thumb reflect the views of the writer, but not the publication at large.
