Girls will be girls, and when Natasha Olenski and Angie Heyward get together for a slumber party, there are pedicures and pillow fights before tucking one another into bed.
Hello hello hello, fans of Naked News who live all over the world! It’s the Old Soldier reporting for duty.
I just came back from a food shopping expedition to the supermarket in Little Italy (It’s an overcast day and the high will be in the 70s). But I’m anxious to get the fun money I’m expecting later this week so that I can get back to covering my beat (Armand’s and Nico’s) in Little Italy.
In the meantime I have plenty to keep me busy: the three books (D. W. Griffith’s The Birth of a Nation by Melvyn Stokes, The Time Before History by Colin Tudge and Silent Stars by Jeanine Basinger) that I checked out of the public library and my continuing efforts to educate myself as a publisher of an online girlie magazine.
Actually, I try to use everything to make myself a better publisher. The books I check out of the library teach me a great deal about life (which I add to my experience of life) which is useful to any publisher. But of course, I can learn some immediate lessons about publishing a girlie magazine from other much more successful girlie magazine’s like Maxim. This is what Wikipedia has to say about Maxim.
“Maxim is an international men’s magazine, devised and launched in the UK, but now based in New York, and prominent for its photography of actresses, singers, and female models whose careers are at a current peak. It is the largest young men’s lifestyle brand in America, reaching nearly 9 million readers each month. Maxim Digital reaches more than 4 million unique viewers each month. Maxim magazine publishes 16 editions, sold in 75 countries worldwide.”
How did Maxim come to my attention? Well, of course, I’ve seen it on the shelve in the CVS/Pharmacy down the street and on the magazine rack of the dollar store across the street; but it wasn’t until I saw it in the lobby of my apartment building with the mailing address of the young woman who lives above me that I figured it was time for me to take a closer look at Maxim. I like to think that women enjoy reading my little girlie magazine as much as men do. As a matter of fact, my little girlie magazine is aimed at women. The Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette is a magazine published by a heterosexual man to celebrate female sexuality. That’s my niche.
So, I have plenty to keep me busy until I get my fun money.
This is the Old Soldier reporting for the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette.
Hail to Pitt!
