Welcome back to Ragazine.CC, and the online world we live in. It’s always a stretch to think we’re doing something different, that we’re taking readers places you may not have been before. But it’s also a fact that no matter how well traveled you are, how well versed in literature, how many galleries you’ve been to and through, there still will be some new pearl between the shells of Ragazine’s virtual pages. So please, keep turning … and let us know what you might like to see us pull up from the depths that we haven’t explored, yet.
On the other side of this coin, we spent quite a lot of time over the past few months looking at ways to improve the appearance and functionality of the zine. There are a number of features we can incorporate, but virtually all of them have a price tag attached. Even when they don’t, there’s most often a cost involved with setting up the features, whether an additional fee for more data storage, higher speed network access, greater bandwidth on the server, or payment for web design services to help make things happen.
Ragazine.CC is a 501c3 affiliate organization. We don’t pay editors, writers, photographers, artists, illustrators or any of the scores (or hundreds) of people who have helped keep the ball rolling since the zine began in 2004. (But we’d like to.) We greatly appreciate the monetary contributions received over the past 10 years, but unfortunately we’re a long way from being “liquid.” That said, we’re asking for your support to help us put more of our ideas into effect, and to get the word out to a wider audience who understand and appreciate the freedom and creativity we work to exhibit from issue to issue.
There’s a DONATE button below; feel free to use it any time, day or night. If it doesn’t work, email me and let me know and we’ll see what’s wrong (it’s happened before). If it does work, you’ll hear from us right away with a profound (if not resounding) “THANK YOU.” If you or someone you know would be interested in becoming a sponsor, we are interested in working with you/him/her/them to develop a unique approach to presenting institutional statements in creative ways designed for impact and appearance, while adhering to the general tenor and tenets of the zine. (Basically, as far out as you want to take it.)
