I love zines and think that they are such a great way to self publish and get your ideas out to more people. I was talking to a friend of mine, who writes a zine and runs a zine and bookshop, the other day about blogs, she personaly doens't like them, which at first surprised me because I thought the idea of getting more people writing and more people sharing would be high on her list of good ideas. At the same time she makes her zine on her type writer and is not a fan of computers so of course it should have come as no surprise. Her actual reasons for not liking blogs is that people don't put enough thought into them, as a result they are not as truthful. The idea of it being too easy to put something out there before you might really know if it is how you want to represent yourself. And that the quality of what goes out is not as high as you would get in a zine or anything that you sat with edited and re-edited till you got it right.
She lent me the other day this zine http://www.dorisdorisdoris.com/, not being a punk I have missed out on the having the common knowledge of all these great zines that everyone seems to know about. There is this other one I started to read a few years back that is great, all cartoons. I didn't realise that EVERYONE knows this zine
