Hi all - So I have been brewing ideas recently for an E-Magazine for luthiers. I want to get a really good idea first, though, of who might or might not be interested in this. The idea came because I had set up a blog just for my own stuff about a year ago; I was surprised to find that it got 13,000 hits, and definitely I did not think there was that much interest in Lutherie (aside from the small forum communities that exist). So I wanted to put this out there to see just how much interest there might be in something like this. If there is not much interest, I won't waste the time. If there is a lot of interest though, I will make it and set up a proper website for it. The general idea is that it would be based on submissions from many people for techniques, tricks, ideas, tools, etc. (as well as featuring the work of luthiers), so that any luthier capable of writing a good (well-written and helpful) article can submit something. An issue would be released probably once or twice a year. The idea I had was that it would be set up similar to an Academic Journal, where people make submissions that are then accepted or rejected based on both the quality of the submission and the suitability for the issue (assuming there were enough submissions to make a full issue). The only one that I know about that exists at the moment is American Lutherie, which is from the GAL. This would be a journal open for submissions for any professional (or semi-professional) luthiers, so long as the articles are written in English. It would be available for free as an E-Magazine (and possibly in print in the future if there was enough interest in having print versions made). Just wanted to put this out there to get a feel for two things: a) whether anybody would be interested in it, and b) how many people would have an interest in writing submissions. Thoughts?
