I have been away from the zine culture for some time (simply put, I've been treating myself to a two year retreat, deep in the mountains of montana), and while creating one thing or another has never stopped, the belief that I needed/wanted any sort of community did. Eek. (we all move in and out of things, thankfully)
Anyway, as I've been putting together a zine of my experiences in this wacky little town, inevitably I've been poking around the zinesters' contributions to the interweb. And yesterday as I'm looking at a distro, then my horoscope, then a distro, then a......wha wha what?! Doth my eyes deceive me?! A social networking website for Zine Folk???
I'll admit, I was leary at first, but all it took was a good look around this place for me to realize the same positive energy that arrives in our post boxes is coursing through this site as well.
To wrap this up, while the excitement of the increased networking via this site burns within me, (going from SLC to the middle of nowhere has been challenging at times) I am also itching for a good old fashioned pen pal (or two or three).
I will send you my sketches of turquoise-faced people and dried pine needles, I'll tell tales of a land with no traffic lights. And hopefully, I'll receive the same- only uniquely yours.
