If you could make and publish your own magazine, what would it be about? I know a lot of people are into anime and comics, would you be interested in doing one of your own? Several others would be really good at putting together an animal magazine, or one about tips for taking care of your pet. So many mylotters have different talents, and I imagine a whole lot could make an incredibly publication if they had the chance. What would you make your magazine, and what would the name be?

We actually DO publish a few small regional publications/mags...one on health, a couple for different sports and we hope to do a wedding one, too. We also do a small Christian newspaper. I sometimes think I would like to do one on rubber stamping/scrapbooking, but that is so much work- to come up with new and fresh ideas each time! I guess not much more than what we do now...just hire out some of it, but wow- it makes my head spin to even think about doing it. Maybe I will just do an article for the newspaper about it...lol. I bet you will get such a wide variety of fun answers- you are right there are so many here with so many interests...it is so wonderful!!!

Hehe--would you believe that when I was in Junior High school I did actually do a little magazine? Circulation...2 people...it was mainly between my friend and I and I suppose it was our own version of like a Glamour magazine, where we drew out the latest fashions, had fashion and makeup tips...LOL Mmmm...as for now? I guess an animal type magazine would fit the bill for me, no? Have one section of the taking care of pets (all kinds), an animal activist alert page or feature and gee I wonder and guess who the main photographer would be, now gee, who would that be? hehee

If you had the financial backing, I know you would have a huge legion of readers!

If you cover all that then I think everyone would forget the other magazines because they could get it all with you!

Well, I would only be able to put a little of each in at a time otherwise it would be costly to publish and buy but I would want it to be fun, have recipes that people would be able to make everyday not just those fancy ones that you never would make that they have in alot of them now. I would want it to be a magazine that everyone liked because it would have something for everyone. I have alot of magazines and my mom is always buying this and that magazine and some have such useless information in them or stupid things that I doubt alot of readers would even consider doing and the decorating tips are outlandish and I doubt alot of people would even want to do their house in them. So I would have to do a survey on what others would like to see in a magazine and what they expect and go from their.

Truthfully if you had a magazine named for the love of food I would probably subscribe!

Oh that is easy, "Prophetic Dance" is what I would call my magazine and it would have clothes you can buy along with accessories and books, DVD's and CD's you can buy to help you experience a closer relationship to G♥d. Plus it would have awesome articles from those who have a prophetic vision in what G♥d is saying today..

Your idea sounds intriguing. There wouldn't be anything else like it out there.

Now this discussion is like a spring breeze Ambie. =3 Heck yes I'd be interested in doing something like this. If it was from my own interests, I'd probably need two different magazines after awhile (Pro-Original and Pro-"Gamer" =P, just the 'beta'/working names). One would have the various interests I have: art, cooking, life, people, music, nature, light technology; and reactions to things happening in the world. Of course there would be jokes and humor... maybe I'd put more humor/light type manga in the back too. The second would have the more esoteric interests: gaming, computer, technology, anime, manga. In this one I'd probably dedicate a good amount of section to a manga series, or two or three. Unless someone else could think of other names I'll go with some of the following. Original/Open Magazine - Profection Gamer/"Geek" Magazine - Protaku

That's a nice thought. I would make magazine of writing reviews on movies since i am very fond of writing reviews of movies and i guess i am very good at it (not bragging). I would invite readers to write their own reviews on the movies and give away free goodies to the best writers. ~pinks~

I'm pretty good at stretching a dollar as far as it will go, so if I were to create a magazine it would probably be about frugal living in some way. It wouldn't be anything modern or contemporary, just good, clean living on the cheap. I love older homes, country kitchens, french country, that sort of thing. I'm sure there's a way it could all be brought together. As for a name, I wouldn't have a clue!

Sounds like a magazine we could all use.

I would create a magazine for budding writers so that they could have their work published. I'd call it Writing Senseless. Probably an animal one too. More about the animals adopted from shelters and how owners found their perfect match etc. Call that one Petflections. Oh, then a needlepoint magazine where people can showcase their finished works, ask for tips, share advice and review products etc. United Needles might be a good title.

Mine would be about being thrifty/frugal. There'd be a section for recycled crafts, because I love that you can make craft from items that others would throw away. Of course there'd be a coupon and refund/rebate section. Gosh, I could go on forever. What an interesting idea you have here.

I'd probably do a magazine with short horror fiction and artwork. I am actually in the process of setting up a blog for just that purpose. Magazines have almost become outdated now thanks to the internet and blogging. It is so easy to set up a blog now and almost do it magazine style. Very good question

I think I would have to make a magazine by the name of This, That, and Everything else. It would have random info, helpful tips for everyone, and maybe some recipies for those who have little time and little money. I'd probably not sell anything though. lol

I have thought many times about creating my own magazine. I would love to be able to create one, but I am not sure what it would be about. I have so many different interests it would be hard to narrow it down and focus on just one topic.

I would publish a magazine all about fun, with articles that would tell how to get the best out of life. I would include sections on food, outdoor and indoor activities, newest, and free stuff, and fun helping other people. The goal of my magazine would be that anyone who reads it would find in every issue something that would expand their capacity for laughter, love, and enjoyment. I don't know what I would name it, but it would have a happy title.

hmm that's a very good question that deserves a lot of thinking. to make and publish a magazine means i must be really passionate about something. it's not easy to conceptualise, let alone publish a magazine. after going through all the usual, and unusual, choices of magazine, i think i'd go for one that is all about happiness. it'll be about how to be happy, what are the steps to find what makes one happy. i find that we are all too absorbed with making money that we forgot all about happiness. ultimately, isn't the aim of having money to make us happy? if we totally forgot about happiness, what good will all the money in the world do?

I would probably call it "Heather's Hobbies" and it would be full of all kinds of things that people can do. It would be filled with trivia, and tips, and opportunities to make friends.
