I’ve had a productive day. I’ve already published one short blog post and I’ve started my deep breathing, flexibility and stretching exercises in anticipation of karaoke at Sonny’s Tavern in Bloomfield (Little Italy) the first Sunday night of August 2016 (and I’ve mulled over the songs by The Doors that I’ll sing that night). I cooked four thick turkey necks in my crock pot today. I did some hand laundry for tomorrow. I hung out at Armand’s in Little Italy for a couple of hours. Then I bought a 12 pack of 12 ounce beers at Armand’s and caught the bus back home. Then I assumed my favorite position (flat on my back on the sofa with two pillows under my weary head) and I sipped on beer as I listened to the local 24/7 all sports talk show and continued to read my library book on Hugh Hefner and Playboy Magazine. And I came across this: “What Sort of Man Reads Playboy?”
That got me to thinking: “What Sort of Person Reads The Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette?”
Well, I really have no hard statistics on who reads The Gazette. The following short list is just my imaginative list of the ideal reader for my little girlie magazine.
- Both men and women read The Gazette.
- People who have an appreciation for erotica read The Gazette.
- Bloggers and writers of flash fiction read The Gazette.
- People who sing karaoke read The Gazette.
- People who watch porn read The Gazette.
Now these are only a few of the people that I figure who read my little girlie magazine; because the magazine covers other topics, too; but this list is a good start.
Hail to Pitt!
