Summer... kids hanging out in my house all day being bored... Thank you September for giving me my space back.
I was sitting in bankruptcy court this morning (with an unfortunate in-law who went on an $8,000 dollar shopping spree involving her phone, a home shopping channel, and a credit card she should never have had in the first place) when inspiration struck. I had just finished the most recent issue of The East Village Inky and started on RatBrat when I had this crazy urge to… Continue

Here are the comments that Laura-Marie wrote about my zines in Erik and Laura-Marie Magazine #45
A Poem a Day
by Chantel is a zine of poems that Chantel wrote in January. Reading them gives me the sense of a life.
Candy Box: An Adventure in Sweets from the UK
by Chantel is a review zine of candy from the UK. Included are photocopies of the candy wrappers, and she rates each candy on wrapper, visual appeal, and taste, with bonus points for being easy… Continue

I finished and/or printed three new zines this week! Scatter Gram No. 4 is the latest of my library school journal zines. 'Ciuschidda' is a one shot quarter-size zine that tells the story of my grandpa’s nickname for me, and how I found out what it meant years after he died. And Winsome & Wise is a cut-n-paste perzine that's hopefully the start of something I'll continue for a while. They are all available in my etsy shop, http://welshrabbit.etsy.com.

I've updated the Rebel Grrl Zine
site. I've added the youtube video I made talking about the zines, and added a link to buying Rebel Grrl Zine t-shirts and badges and such.
Two new zines nearly done (50:50 #2 and Change the World in 7 Days).

This month, people gave me a lot of great things to give away with orders (bunches of cd's, zines, buttons, stickers...even shirts and posters), so if you've been thinking of placing an order, just know that'll I can promise to send along a few extra things. Also, on the website, we have a new music player! Which means, you don't have to download 50 some songs individually to check out all the music we have to offer, you can just play it right off the site, super easy. This is what's been going… Continue

The answer to, and winner (if any) for,
our last contest question of:
Galileo, in his book 'Two New Sciences' talked about music theory.
He said that the octave sound was "rather too bland and lacks fire.
But the musical interval called the _______ , he describe as
causing "a tickling of the eardrum so that its gentleness is
modified by sprightliness, giving the impression simultaneously of
a gentle kiss and of a bite." Name the musical interval… Continue

I just set up a new group: "German-Writing Zinesters" is meant to be for all zinesters who write their zines in german, whether it is because German is their native tongue or it is a loved foreign language.
If you write German: come play! :-)

The second mini-zine I've made, this one for a swapbot-swap "Mini-Zine of Craftiness": "On Writing - a mini-zine about the awesomeness of creating texts".
I am very disappointed with what I came up with.
I love writing, but I found it impossible for me to put the feeling I have while writing in words or pictures.
I am wondering how I can manage this better than that, but I have no idea at all on what to do or how to even try.
Probably it is just not possible, and it… Continue

An Ezine as you know is an electronic newsletter or magazine, which is sent out by email. Yet this standard definition of an electronic newsletter has changed and so too will the true definition of an Ezine in the future. How so you curiously ask?
Well, the reason I say this is because in 1995 we put our newsletters for my company online at our website, because well because not everyone was using email yet and the attachment thing… Continue

i found this cool video on YouTube, by SamProof, were he demonstrates how to make a zine (small format, about 7.5 cm by 10.5 cm, that's about 2"95 by 4"13) without using glue/staples/stitching/etc, just by a special but simple folding process!
see it here:

following my last post, on SamProof's video tutorial, he talks about zine trading and he has had a great idea i feel i must share you (even) more people!
according to his own words, if you would like to have a copy of the zine but are short or out of money, you can send a drawing with a self-addressed stamped envelope and you will receive a copy of the zine back! also, your drawing might appear on the next issue of the zine!
i think this is a very good idea! usually, zine… Continue

Hello all - been lurking for a while, but finally joined instead of just obsessively reading the forum.
Managed to force/convince myself that the second issue of my Clash/Joe Strummer/punk(ish)/related zine that I managed to scrape together wasn't a total waste of ink and double-sided tape and people might actually be interested.
Got some extra emergency high quality photo copies done at the local art shop before posting it off to be printed,
prices have gone right up now… Continue

well, i've spent the last hours browsing trough WMZ, searching for groups & blog/forum posts about stuff i'm interested in, updating my page, etc etc. i've already done some shopping thanks to some members i found! (that's because i'm addicted to shopping - online - for zines!)
i've started by adding 1 friend and joining a few groups and by now i've got 3 friends, and i'm starting to exchange nice messages with interesting and friendly people.
so this community feels… Continue
