Indobrit & Smoke
Today I discovered two fascinating new magazines - one called Indobrit - aimed at young British Asians - and the other called Smoke - a London Peculiar (from Annie Mole’s blog - originally thru Diamond Geezer’s blog) which is aimed at Lodon-o-philes. Both have particularly unique qualities - in both style and coverage - and I am eagerly looking forward to getting them in the post soon!

“It’s the honky tonk women
Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues.“
The Rolling Stones - heard on the radio in my car driving down the A1 from Cambridge yesterday
well have to say, i’ve never seent aht mag around should i be blushing?
Hey! Thanks for visiting my blog! you have an amazing blog. Ur blog actually gives me a complex! Will def visit often!
Hi Shobha - thanks for visiting!
The comments in your blog entry were sort of infectious - and I felt that a bit of “viral networking” would contribute to the ego boost you mentioned.
Hey - hope the “complex” doesn’t put you off too much! It’s sort of funny you say that because I sort of go to great efforts to keep my journal (not blog) as un-complex as possible! And truth be known - I was taken by “I, Me & Media” - what a great title!
No - thanking you - the pleasure is all mine!
sweet of you to plug the mag. I love blogging, the face of new media? Looks like the future of news and networking.
Hey - thanks for commenting.
‘tis the future indeed …
Idea: How about all your magazine subscribers get exclusive access to an online version of the mag - that way you can supplement the content with interaction - e.g. editors/writers blogs, subscriber opinions, feedback etc. - get some sort of community going, subscriber reviews of issues/topics - etc. etc. On the costs side you prob only need to employ a reasonably competent webmaster - or outsource this to a web shop.
You see - in my view - the print version of the medium is just a convenient “bearer” for the content when you can’t be online - e.g. on the bus - or sitting on the sofa at your inlaws. And even then - with wireless these will become practical in a few years anyway …
