Scratching an itch

The desire to make a magazine is like having an itch you can’t scratch; the only relief is to actually make one.

With no funds or experience, it was only bloody-mindedness and Kickstarter that made this a possibility. The crowd funding process was a mixture of fear and elation, putting something I felt passionately about up for scrutiny kept me awake at night.

However, technology can socially connect us to like-minded people, the people who ‘get it’ and seeing the sweat and tears transform to ink on the printed page will be a wonderful moment.

Until the next itch comes along.
