ZANNAZINE

23 Aug

I already have a blog but I’m starting another. If you are reading this, then you are here. At my other blog.  I’ll cut right to the chase and give you some context. There are a few reasons for the birth of this site, ZANNAZINE, as it is so called. They are as follows:

1. Itchiness. As all of you who read Miss Young and Restless know, I have recently started a new stage of my life where I am no longer a full-time, nine-to-fiver. I have consequently saved my sanity but also freed up some extra time. Thus I have begun to itch for new projects and new ways to express myself in addition to Miss Y&R. This blog is one of the ways in which I am doing this.

2. Y&R block (not to be confused with H&R Block as this is not about taxes. Heavens, no.): On my other blog, which is still near and dear to me, and on which I still intend to write, I have become somewhat conflicted as to what I should be posting there. It’s not really nichey, per se, nor is it focused in any one area unless you consider my stream-of-consciousness specific enough. I really enjoy a forum to communicate my ideas, whatever they may be, but I want a more focused blog niche as well.

3. Art: I am passionate about it, in most of its embodiments. I enjoy looking at it, reading it, listening to it, thinking about it and creating it. It’s something I don’t do enough of or think enough about on a daily basis and I intend to change this. This blog is going to facilitate my (and hopefully your!) discussion and creation of art, in the form of writing, painting, design, et cetera, et cetera.

So finally – “What is this blog going to be about,” you ask.

On ZANNAZINE, I will be limiting my communications to art, so not really limiting them at all. I want to write about design, paintings, movies, songs, and writing as well as do these things myself and post them here. I promise I’ll try to amuse you as well as myself so this isn’t an entirely narcissistic project.

Anywho – we’ll see how things go. Without further ado…Enjoy!
