    I have this project in which I'm supposed to be making a couple of four page newspapers and a magazine. The newspapers I am not worried about, but the magazine concerns me as I can't decide on a particular theme.

    So I came up with this idea today. I'm planning to make a bloggers mag, in which the best of various blogs will be published. Now I have a page limit of 32 which I gotta fill. Of this I can have 40% ads (trying to have as less as possible).

    Here is the part where I need help. First, please tell me whether you like the idea of a bloggers mag. If not, then please suggest an alternate theme. Please don't suggest the usual travel, tech, fashion, music, movies, celebs, etc. The evaluation is not based on the content, but majorly the layout. Secondly, if bloggers here are willing to allow me to publish (with full attribution ofcourse), I need to know.

    As usual, all feedback welcome. :)

    I thing the idea is good!! It's different and yet interesting!!! Try to have different genre of bloggers...that'll be interesting!!

    Or you can fill the magazines with Swears of South Park!!

    I want to try that sure! But SP swears won't earn me accolades IMO. ;)

    I'll definitely try diff genre of bloggers! Thanks for your reply. You want to contribute something to my mag?

    For noobs or not, I need to make it. I'm interested if you have written the articles, else even I can google up some delicious curry.


    I didn't quite catch ya there mate. Btw can I use your blog content? I'll attribute it to thewisecrab or your real name... Clear isn't it? Anyway, this is a project and totally non-commercial, so don't worry I won't be making money out of your hard work. :)
