We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

Any interest in a zine review/interview blog?

Being a zinester and a blogger, i am often conflicted as to where to where to publish my content. So today i thought "why not combine the two?"

The advantages of having zine reviews in a blog would be great, as i could easily post pictures/excerpts, and links to distros where people can purchase the zine. I could also do short interviews with zine creators and appreciators. Much like zines, a blog about zines has endless possibilities.

I just wanted to see what other people thought of this.
-Would you be interested in reading a blog about zines?
-Would you submit your zine for review?
-Would you be interested in being interviewed?
-Would you like to contribute as a writer/reviewer?

any feedback on this would be greatly appreciated!

I think this is a great idea! You could read about the zine on your blog and then quickly link to a distro (since so many are online) and pick it up!
I read zine review blogs, and would read others, providing they review the sort of zines I'm interested in.

I review zines on my blog too, but I've decided to only review a handful a month rather than every zine I read. That way I don't feel pressured to review everything and it doesn't take up too much time, but I still have the chance to shout out about those zines I have strong opinions on. I know I probably won't get the readership of a blog that only reviews zines and reviews a lot, but I enjoy it and that's what counts!
enjoying what you do is the most important part!
