Things are looking promising for the Kickstarter campaign. With one week to go, we are just $300 shy of the $6,000 target. It looks like this magazine is going to happen!
I really can’t express how excited and appreciative I am of everyone’s support, both through your financial contributions as well as your offers to help promote and contribute to the magazine. I have literally had to turn people down for articles for the first issue because there’s just no more room! I WILL be back in touch with you for issue #2 though! 😉
This has been an amazing process that has opened many new doors and friendships with people and websites I didn’t even know last month. There is clearly an audience out there just waiting for a magazine like this, and I hope the Cool & Collected Magazine fills that need. Like I said, we’re almost there, but I want to really see this thing pushed above and beyond the funding goal, so that the future of the magazine will be that much more clear. Tell your family, friends, co-workers, pet sitters, local comic shop owners, — you get the idea.
This project is not only being funded by the crowd, the magazine itself is being crowdsourced — all the articles, photos, and illustrations were contributed by fellow collectors — and it would never have happened without all of your support. Thank you!
