A few weeks ago i posted my personal zine goals for 2010 in a thread on We Make Zines. Here they are:
- Finish 3 more issues of All Things Ordinary before Portland Zine Symposium
- Help organize the Portland Zine Symposium
- Table at Chicago Zine Fest and Portland Zine Symposium
- Complete collaborative zine project about bad house-mate stories with Cortney
- Buy a paper cutter
- Finally become a member of the IPRC
- Get my zines into stores and distros around the world
- Get better at replying to mail more quickly
- Start making my own envelope
- Make a 24 hour zine in July
Thanks to an early birthday present from Cortney, i can already cross one thing off the list (she bought me a year membership to the IPRC). I plan on trying to make my own envelopes out of old maps i have any day now. I have a stack of zines packaged and waiting to go out to stores and distros for consideration. I’ve been checking craigslist every few days for a decent paper cutter so hopefully i’ll find one soon.
As far as All Things Ordinary #2 goes, i have three pieces written and edited for it. Hopefully this week i will get those printed and laid out.
