Hello, zine friends. Once again it has been a little quiet around these parts. That’s the thing about life – it just keeps going whether you like it or not. Things just keep happening whether we like it to or not. All we can do is keep trying to go with the flow.
So what’s in store for SeaGreenZines?
*Scheduled Posts Hiccup – I’m not sure how I didn’t catch this before now, but it seems that scheduled posts on WordPress don’t play nicely with the change of the clocks. Posts that were scheduled up simply didn’t post and remained as ‘scheduled’. I think I have fixed everything now.
*Resting? – A big lesson of this year already has been about health. I’m doing a lot more to improve my health and wellness, but it’s a long road. A road that involves accepting that I can’t do all the things for all the people all the time. (This irritates me to no end. Haha.)
*Zine Reviews – Yes, this goes here, too, because I still have a long way to go.
*SGZ Pages – This is definitely on the to-do list – especially the resources page. I really want this whole website to be a zine hub, so if you are a zinemaker, have a zine shop, run a zine related page or blog – please let me know because I’d love to add you to the list.
*Review Index Part Two – In updating the index, I found out that some of the reviews no longer have their cover pictures. I’m not sure exactly why or how, but I’m guessing it happened during the transfer to the new hosting. I’ll be working on getting the covers back into those posts.
*Button machine! Thanks to the awesomeness of True Zine Marin, Sea Green Zines now has a button machine. I’m so excited and have so many dreams of different buttons I can make. I need to get the swing of the machine going by my first buttons, but there may be some SGZ-made buttons coming to my shops soon.
*I’m still dreaming of finishing up Phenomena 2, Workaholic 2, Dear Anonymous 9, and Dear Anonymous 10. I thought I’d be able to finish them before the end of the year, but, at this point, I really have no idea. I’m trying to get as much as possible done each day.
*I’m dreaming of a few new personal zines as well as some things to add to the YouTube channel… but they are all definitely well within dreaming territory for now.
And here we are at the end of the list already. Not much has changed, and I feel like I’m repeating myself way too much by apologising yet again. Life just keeps coming. I keep thinking I will ‘go back to normal’ at some point, but I am beginning to think that’s not possible anymore. Now is the time to sort out and make a new normal. Wish me luck…
Until next time, spread a little sunshine.
