The Editor's Journal
Danger – Work in Progress
Greetings and Salutations!
A new year often brings new beginnings, and for me 2015 brings me to the helm of PinkPlayMags, taking over the duties and responsibilities of Editor-in-Chief from Jeff Harrison. Jeff had been with the magazine from its inception seven years ago, and was instrumental in getting it to where it is today as a publication.
My goal is to continue in that direction, by providing outstanding journalism from a great collection of writers. We are calling 2015 “The Year of Sequels”, as we’ll be going back to revisit some of our most popular issues from the past, and bringing them back to life once again.To begin, we’re going back to Spring 2010 which was our “geek” issue. Five years later and “geekdom” continues to flourish with gaming, comic books, and new technology exciting throngs of dare I say, “nerdy types”.
I’ve thought of myself as a word-nerd on occasion, but I’ve never thought of myself as a geek. I haven’t the slightest idea how to play video games, the last comic book I read was in my childhood, and I still hesitate when adapting to new technology. Perhaps a better term to describe myself might be a “luddite”. So working with everyone to put this issue together will be an enlightening journey for me, and I hope it will be just as exciting for you to read.
Another area of focus that I’m looking to expand on is our Bloggers section on the home page of our website. This was spearheaded by Jeff and launched in the spring of last year. He had graciously passed me the torch of overseeing this project last summer, and it’s been great working with such fantastic contributors. We began by covering a wide array of topics that includes fashion, physiotherapy, parenting, finance/insurance, spirituality, and fitness. Since then we have added law, and our new addition is feminism. If you have a topic of interest that you think our community might be interested in, please feel free to get in touch and pitch your ideas.
In conclusion, may I suggest that you have a look back to the year 2010 with our original Geek issue, while waiting for the sequel to arrive. From all of us here at PinkPlayMags – writers, publisher, designers, volunteers, and those behind the scenes – we welcome you to 2015!
