….and so it begins

Hello and welcome to the site Our Arts Magazine.  Who or what are we?  Well, it is all in the name really.

This is a brand new magazine for people in the arts.  You have caught us right at the beginning….the new, fresh, opening.  I do not have backers, etc, so no setting up a ton of stuff ready for a big opening nor I do not have the patience to be one of those, ‘..collect emails of people who may be interested whilst we decide what to do first..’ type people 🙂

Also the clue is as I said, in the name.  It is OUR arts magazine.  It is what we make it.  So this first post on the brand new site is a request.  A request for people to come on board.  A request for YOU to say what you would like to see here.

My hope is a bustling site FULL of news.  Some contests…freebies.  Guest bloggers to come on and share their stories.  A Dear Abbie type page (but here she is called Fran and is very rude… sorry about that, I did ask her not to be but……)

So, what do YOU expect from a site like this?  How do you view its growth?

Don’t be shy… from the smallest acorns mighty trees grow.  Not that I am calling you an acorn or anything…. but…. um… ok off track again….

Welcome to Our Arts Magazine.  Enjoy the ride xx
