About Me

LADYBUG ZINE BLOG - ladybugzine.blogspot.com

this could use an update, right? haven't been around WMZ that much lately, mainly due to having to divide my time between my crappy job, training classes on Photoshop, procrastinating on Facebook (you know what i mean!), and reading a bit, zines and books (not as many as i would like though). not much money to spend on zines anymore, because of the crisis, and, again, my crappy job that doesn't pay that much for me to live large and such......

if you check out my facebook, or my zine's facebook page, you can keep up with any updates on my zining adventures!

2010-08-22 updates:
thank you to everyone who's been responding about my first zine, your comments are always appreciated :))
i just started a new blog post to keep track of when & who i send Ladybug #1. if you bought a copy or we arranged a trade, check this post...

i've been (slowly) working on a first zine and i'm looking for places to read about what zine-making is like these days, and also looking looking for fellow zinesters to exchange ideas (and in the future, zines maybe?), contributors to future zines, etc etc...

there are so many things that interest me, that it would fill 2 pages with topics hehe!
anyway, i sign up for Ning in the first place, because of this community.

a few of the things that interest me:
zines, fanzines, art, music, literature, cinema, magazines, books, artist journals, sketchbooks, comics, gothic culture, graphic novels, vampires, photography, vintage, collections, stamps, street art, guerrilla art, handmade crafts, paper crafts, design, graphic design, typography, fashion, photoshop, printing, diy, etc...

right now , i seem to be the only one from Portugal here at WMZ and that feels kinda lonely, you know? ;-(. i wish there could be more Portuguese folks in here. if you're Portuguese and i didn't found you before here on WMZ, feel free to comment on my page!
»»» até logo! ;-)

Flier Exchanging

I find that there is not enough of us exchanging zine fliers. Flier exhanging is perhaps one of the most effective ways to promote zines. This group is for anyone who is looking to promote their zine and promote the zines of others.See More

Revenge Of Print!

2011 has been declared the Revenge of Print, because we're all tired of "the end of publishing as we know it" stories. Revenge of Print is a campaign to get as many people as possible to self-publish in 2011!

Olá Yvonne! Eu acho que conecço o seu zine de "nome" no blog do Fernando - UNIZINEFANZINE. O mundo cada vez menor por causa da internet. Meu zine, Janela Poderosa é em português, mas os quadrinhos (banda desenhada), estou passando para o inglês para ter um contato maior com mundo. Se você quiser pode baixar um arquivo do Janela no meu blog (www.janelapoderosa.blogspot.com). Lá tem uma versão em PDF da edição 2. ;)

It says in your letter that you're going to write me again soon, so if you do that, I'll send you a reply back with what I thought of Ladybug if you like..? I'm looking forward to reading it, as well as everything else you sent me :)
Thanks again :)

cheers, I've been a bit lazy with it for the last few months though. Too many distractions!

I received your zine in the mail today. I thumbed through it (haven't read it yet) and am loving how it looks. You really have an eye for design. Plus all the little goodies you sent along with it just made my day! I can't wait to sit down and read your first issue. Let me know when my zines arrive. I hope they get there safe.

Hi Yvonne would love to trade, might be a few weeks till my zine is ready as I wasn't too happy with the b/w printing of my last batch - will let you know when I have my new printer and better copies to send... all the best! Jean
