The baby was just born last night and the second issue is now safely swaddled onto issuu.com. Whew! Delivery is always a little messy, but no satisfaction quite equals seeing your creative baby born on the web.
I hope you will check out the latest edition that is a takeoff on Alice in Wonderland and the Matrix. Fun stuff.
Now that I am finished with this issue, I have about a million things to do: create the website, set up email subscribes and notices, learn that (dang) SEO, contact my contributors, etc. It's all good. It's usually in the administrative-management process that I start forming the next issue in my head. I also want to work on those home projects of mine that have been cooling on ice. Nothing like recovering dining room chairs and stripping a coffee table to clear away any cobwebs on say, links and embed code.
Anyway, if any of you have used WordPress for a standalone web, I would love to hear about your experiences and what you think of it. Actually, let me know of any good or bad experiences you have had building a standalone site with templates.
And to all of you who have encouraged and supported me in launching the magazine, I just want to say thank you, thank you, thank you!
