Lunchtime Poll Topic: Downloadable Vintage Related Magazine?

Those of you who are signed up for my newsletter have already seen (and hopefully filled out!) the little poll I created over the weekend - for the rest of you, here's the scoop:

Back when I started this blog what I really wanted to create was an online magazine - here's the post from December 10th, 2007 to prove it. I let the idea die though when I realized the time and work involved in a project like that, and honestly the same issues I had with the idea back then are the same issues I have with it now.

But everyone's reactions to Country Home and several of the other "shelter" magazines going out of business put the idea into my head again - apparently there are a whole lot of folks out there just like me who love magazines! So, I decided to get some opinions from my regular visitors in the form of a little poll - just to gauge the level of interest in the idea.

Here's the poll - it's just a few questions, it will only take a couple of minutes to fill out.

Here's the results so far - if you are curious ;)

Thanks in advance!

PS - Brownie points to everyone who can name the movie my Lunchtime Poll Topic reference is from!

Took the poll when I got the newsletter.

And "Office Space" was my guess, too!

Mitzi said...

Thanks! And nope, not Office Space, its a little older of a movie than that...

Hi Mitzi - just found your sweet blog and you sound like the kind of thrifty diva I've been looking for out here in the blogosphere! I also have an Etsy shop and LOVE to discover vintage and retro treasures, but I also really enjoy sharing beautiful garments and accessories with my customers, even if my little "treasure trove" of items are not all over 20 years old, or a designer label, and don't cost $200. Looks like you are open to all kinds of thrifty, frugal, and budget-minded beauty! I'll be back to check out what you are up to with that magazine idea . . . . I've done quite a bit of free-lance writing and could offer an article or two once in a while if you are interested! Nina @ Gossamer Wings Studio

I think an online magazine would be great. I wonder if you know of NEET magazine. Maybe something like it for vintage would be great fun. http://neetmagazine.com/

Nobody guessed by now that you're referring to HEATHERS? Oh, the humanity.

Mitzi said...

Hooray! Finally someone knew Heathers - I really thought no one would ever guess! Oh the humanity, indeed ;)
