Hello again, dear reader, I write to you from the blissed-out coma of my bacon-wrapped polish brat with its warm blanket of spicy onion, garlic, and bok choi, all nestled into my soft, hotdog bun…and yes, I ate the whole thing! I needed it! Today has been a day for the record books.
First up, I finally finished the first phase of the REDzine store. You can find it here, http://www.womeninredzine.com/#!__mag-swag, it is a fun, hopefully likeable, little store with only a few items, but it is a place to pick up a subscription to the magazine, or a single issue…or multiple issues and subscriptions. *cough* take the hint *cough* As well as a few cruelty-free, humanitarian earrings, necklaces, scarves, etc. that manage to do so much more than look beautiful, but also provide a living wage for families on the other side of the world reclaiming their lives after suffering unspeakable horrors. These products are only a sampling of the offering to be had from http://www.madebysurvivors.com/ but, because of our demographic, I felt these were the ideal pieces to be carried by REDzine. So, buy something for your mom, your girlfriend, your teacher, the girl who babysits for you…anyone, and do something for two organizations in one stroke. I call it the Feel-Good Support, because it is support that feels good!
— The second phase will be to fully populate the Team Red Gear section with our REDzine t-shirts, bumper stickers, coffee mugs and various other accoutrements designed to make you smile… and look good while you’re doing it. Give me until next weekend and hopefully, that section will be full of swag.–
Second up, we’ll be launching our REDzine App soon…in a matter of 2 weeks. Meaning you’ll be able to get us on your Kindle, Nook, Ipad, Iphone, Smartphone, PC etc,… if you can browse the internet from it, you can get a subscription to it from REDzine. Meaning the KICKASS Autumn 2011 issue will be yours for the viewing on the go! I’ll talk more about this once it’s live and in living color.
Third up, and this is possibly the most important, for now. REDzine is at the Wisconsin Book Festival next Sunday, October 23rd, 2011. We’re also going to be at the Zine Fest, the day before on, October 22nd, 2011. Check us out here, https://www.facebook.com/#!/event.php?eid=299808423367092 and I’ve also attached a copy of our flier. Feel free to pass it along! Feel free to attend. Normally this is where I’m supposed to say that we have punch and pie…but alas…BUT, we do have Magazines and you can certainly come and purchase one, or more, and sign up for a subscription while you’re at it.
I know there’s more, and if I remember, I’ll update you, but for now that is all. I’ll return to my coconut water and allow you to get back to the business of Facebook stalking, or Mag Swag hunting 🙂 or whatever it is you were doing.
Until we meet again, I remain, as always, your intrepid (and fearless) leader,
The Editor-in-Chief, Women in REDzine
