Hello from Otola

We're so glad you're thinking about sharing your voice on this platform.

Feeling a bit intimidated?  No worries, you don’t have be a writer or an expert to share.  There’s room for your voice, your experiences, your insights, and your stories right here on Otola. And our editing team is committed to making sure you look great. 

Join the voices from around the world that are sharing their stories on this platform. 

Readers and writers are all welcome to contribute and share.

Spend some time on our site, deactivate the goldfish syndrome, and reactivate your theta and alpha state. 

Ummmm so yeah, we decided to remove Likes and Views.  They’re cute, trendy, and they add a spot of color, but we thought it best to remove those visual elements.  Why??? Because on Otola we’re really into neutralizing the Liking Culture, by elevating the voices of all.
