VOGOFF Sep 2014 hits newsstands!

I hope you're all fainting with excitement. Yesterday I finished VOGOFF, Fact, Fiction, Fraud, September 2014 issue. I. am. satisfied.

To VOGOFF contributors, thank you for your participation. Your individual submissions are what made this collective work possible. Your talents make my head spin!

I haven't been on the blogger radar for a little while with my time divided between work and putting this together, with bouts of rest and relaxation in between, but since some of you have been popping up on my monitor regularly in the past days during editing, I don't feel too far removed. At over 55 pages, time-wise it's been like putting together about a year's worth of blog posts, but with more laughs. Oh yes. I need to put out another edition with the edits I DIDN't put it. Heh.

So read. Spread the VOGOFF word if you can. Isn't our new cover girl smashing? Thanks, Curtise!


I didn't put this issue on the other VOGOFF website yet. I need to take a breather from technicalities; I might up it later. I have put up a JPG version at the VOGOFF website HERE.

Below is a sidebar image of the magazine. I don't know how to do those automatically-linking downloadable sidebar images without subscribing to another service, so I hope this will do if you are interested. The link to this post will have to be done manually. If you need help, let me know.


That's all. I'll ease back into my normal blogging routine soon. Again, thank you contributors! And I hope that you enjoy reading this as much as I enjoyed farking around with it. Mwah!

That is bloody brilliant. You have contributors who are even as creative as you, Melanie - who would have thought it? I love it.

It's too much for words! Each page is a treasure. I'll be returning over and over. And buying lipstick too! You must be creatively exhausted and understandably so. That picture with Pao and her shoes looks so much like a Dali! I could go on and on......wouldn't these be fun to frame and hang on a wall?

So much for my blogging break - now I must go visit all these schtars and tell them how much I love their submissions! And you, my dahling, have done an exemplary job pulling it all together and adding the fizz and wow and pop that truly makes it VOGOFF! I love your cameos, and I adore your calm little drawings in the midst of all the madness - I want a little smiley kitty leaning against my cheek. Fantastico!

Rosalind said...

So many brilliant, inspiring, creative women. Oh this is good, SOOO good. You're quite simply a genius.

une femme said...

OMG, this is the Best. Issue. Ever. And...Morris Dancer!!!

Jean at www.drossintogold.com said...

I've already read my issue cover to cover several times, and I'm still taking in all the wonderful details. It amazes me that you were able to take such disparate elements and craft such a wonderfully cohesive project. Truly the sum is even greater than the (wonderful) parts. I agree with Rosalind; you're a genius. XXOO

Jan Graham-McMillen said...

MY DAR-LING !!! Just saw it, and it's the best ever! I'm so happy I know you ... all of you.
I laughed, I cried and then did it again because it was so wonderful.
I'm always a fan. Forevahhhh!

Krista Gassib said...

After speaking with Shelley tonight I realized that I never told you what a great edition you put together. It looked like it took a lot of time and sometimes being the force behind these things you get lost, but I see you and that was a creative piece. Thanks for creating cool stuff
