Reflecting on the newsletter - some changes being made
« on: April 28, 2008, 06:15:44 PM »
Hiya, for those of you who don't know, there's a schome park newsletter called MySchome. You should receive an e-mail linking to it very shortly. I just wanted to tell you about some changes and additions to it - and also to give you the opportunity to comment on it.

  • First of all, it's no longer a newsletter. It's more substantial than a newsletter, so MySchome is now a magazine. (Thanks for that Rowan! 8))
  • Secondly, you'll notice that there's two "columns" in there titled Trixxiee's tips and scrapbook - which will be in every edition. Any suggestions on what the scrapbook could be based on would be greatly appreciated.

I can't think of anything else - so I'll let you know if anything else comes up. Thanks to everyone who contributed, and who helped with "the issue". Your work is greatly appreciated - and I'm sure everyone will enjoy reading it.

If you have anything for next time, please feel free to PM it to me, or see me in world ;)

Mars.

PS: I'll link to the newsletter from here once the e-mail has been circulated.
-Mars

Just to add you should have got the link via email - if not the magazine's here.

Yup. Found it in my inbox. I was looking at the wrong email address. Having two does bug me sometimes!  :P

It looks really really good!  :)

Just out of interest, do you have any idea on the frequency of the magazine?  Is there going to be one every school term ....

i.e. one in December, March and May/June? or something?

It will probably be every few months - and I'm going to try to keep it going throughout the closure as well, by keeping in touch with people.

Argh it was smaller and in a different font - I assume the pdf didn't like the font so Peter changed it ;)

I have thought about it - but it might feel like I've lost my identity - sounds daft I know lol

Well there are only a few regular articles, such as scrapbook and Trixxiee's tips. The rest will vary from edition to edition. I haven't heard anything from Schomers about what they thought to the magazine - so what did you think? What could be improved for next time? (Which btw is coming out end of next month I think)

I'm going to organise a meeting in world for those who were involved last time and those who are involved this time so we can pitch some ideas together and make this bigger and better :)

Sounds good.

I thought it looked really good and professional. And I thought the best article was the Archaeology one, I am not biased in the slightest...  :P

I really did think it was good. If I tihnk of anything I will let you know!  :P
