Something positive for a change.
Not that I haven’t been thinking about this for some time, because I mentioned my intention to start up a magazine a few years back when I was interviewing for a editorial position. I’ve had this idea floating around for nearly a decade now. But it’s still going to be a while before I can launch this thing.
It’s the economy, that’s part of it, but it’s also a question of research. Of figuring out how to raise the funds and where to find a good printer and how to do this thing right. I don’t want to open with a flimsy pamphlet and hope to move up to something with status, I want to come out of the gate with this thing being the best. If it doesn’t fly it will at least live gloriously.
So I’m casually beginning my research. There is much to learn about publishing, the business side of things, the raising of finances. It may not pan out in the long run but it won’t be out of shear laziness.
I’m gonna do this. Eventually. And it’s gonna rock.
