a place for zinesters - writers and readers
I semi-retired from zines and went into blogging about 2 years ago, simply because I couldn't afford to make zines;
Hahahaha! I'm glad that this started a discussion!
Anyways, Kelly Rose some blogs are very layout driven. I know this because actually those bloggers DETEST RSS feeds which discourage readers from actually visiting the blog because they get it in an feed burner. Also I love feedback which is why I love blogging!! You get INSTANTANEOUS feedback, and furthermore you can have a discussion. Take the TLo blog. 30 minutes after a post I've seen over 100 comments. Depending on what blog you're on you'll see the comments are a discussion between the readers and sometiems they are just reactions to the post.
Smog City Ed... I wouldn't buy. Hahaha. I know others who would though. It's a very nice concept. You could even change it up and not limit yourself so much and have like an accessory for that month. This way you'd switch it up so you could have sneakers, then maybe a handbag, then earrings, then a man's shirt.. you know just change it up. You could even just have a hankercheif for crying outloud. I say start a blog first then once you get the money from like ads and stuff go on to your hard copy(no pun intended) which is probably what people will want. Prisoners would be an amazing market man!!! And don't for get your friendly neighborhood stylist over here!
Also, I need sneakers to appeal to the "urban" market. You know what I'm saying.

That's not clever, nor is it ironic. It's offensive.
Yeah, right. And when either one of you writes something ironic OR funny, trust me - it'll be the first time.
Carry on, though...this is a hell of fascinating discussion. Especially when you go on and on about "transcending the blogosphere", Lotte. I'm riveted.
