I sure hope you guys still check here! I need to find people to subscribe to my zine! Lol. I would so love to see the zine world come back. D:


What is your name? Kylee
Where were you from? I was living in Arizona when I was first into the zines, now I am in Washington state.
What screen names did you have during the zine era? I had many, but my main one was jealousyride.
What zines did you have? My first memorable one was Garden of Stars. I also had Typical Teenager, Acrimony, Stars &Skulls, Silver Side Up... too many to remember. Lol.
How long were you into zines (approx. what years)? Hmm, I know I was about 13 when I first got involved with the zines and I disappeared when I was 19, so a good 6 years?
What about zines do you remember and still sticks out in your mind? The excitement of signing on and having HUNDREDS of emails! And always wondering, "Will such and such zine be out today?!" It was a lot of fun, when all the drama and trash talk wasn't happening though honestly I am sure that spiked some of the excitement too.
Did you visit zine chats/message boards? I can't even find them anymore. =(

Do you keep in touch with anyone from zines? I have maybe 6-7 girls on my FB friends list.

How can we contact you now? (E-mail, AIM, Facebook, Myspace, LJ, etc?)
LJ would obviously be missgigglebot
Aim: missgigglebot
Facebook: Search 'Kylee Jackson' :)

Are you in a relationship? I sure am. Married too, actually... for about a year and a half now. I have been with Rodger since 10.15.08 :):):)

Do you have a job? Yes, I work at WinCo Foods as a cashier/go backs.
Where do you live now? Kelso, Washington.
Are you involved in any organizations? No.
What do you do in your spare time? Honestly, I feel like work and sleep consume most of my time. I don't watch as much TV anymore, a lot of my favorite shows have ended and I just haven't had time to get into any new ones. I spend a lot of time with my mom, sister and niece. I am now trying to get back into zines, but I still play my Sims and I got back into Runescape too. 3: I'm kind of boring. Lol.

Did you visit zine chats/message boards? Which ones? I definitely did but I can't remember what.
Do you keep in touch with anyone from zines? Who? No!

SURVEY [Dec 31st, 2005]
springbreaka
At the suggestion of meowsayskitty, I'm going to put together a survey/questionnaire for any old school ziner to fill out. That way, people can know who you are/where are you know... All that jazz.

However, I need help making the questions! Please post anything (questions) you would want to know about other people from the zine world. I will then compile them and make an official survey for the community.

Also, if anyone wants to be a maintainer, let me know. I might let you. ;)

Umm... what else needs to be done? Layout, forreal. I'll find a free one to use. Also, tell ANYONE that was ever into zines about this community. I'll start telling people once I get a survey and layout ready. I wasn't a popular zine kid, so I don't know any of the cool people. LOL

OH, BTW THIS IS FOR AOL ZINE KIDS ONLY, NOT ACTUAL PRINT OUT ZINES AND SHIT LIKE THAT

POST QUESTIONS!!!

P.S. Here are some I thought of:
What is your name?
Where were you from?
What screen names did you have during the zine era?
What zines did you have?
How long were you into zines (approx. what years)?
What about zines do you remember and still sticks out in your mind?
Did you visit zine chats/message boards? Which ones?

Do you keep in touch with anyone from zines? Who?
How can we contact you now? (E-mail, AIM, Facebook, Myspace, LJ, etc?)
Are you in a relationship? How's that?
Are you in school? Do you have a job? What are you doing these days?
Where do you live now?
Are you involved in any organizations?
What do you do in your spare time?

LMAO THESE ARE JUST IDEAS! TELL ME WHAT YOU LIKE/HATE + POST MORE!

P.P.S. I figure people, once they join, will have the option to make these surveys friends only or not, considering they may not want EVERYBODY to read their shit.
