Some progress is still progress, right?

We’ve sold about 14 zines so far, despite having over 305 views of it on Magcloud. I don’t want to think that people are just reading the preview instead of buying it, but we’re starting to wonder if that’s the case. That would make us sad. 

If you haven’t grabbed a copy yet, show your support at: http://www.magcloud.com/browse/issue/349728

We’d also like to note that JABR offers both sidebar advertising on our website, as well as advertising in our issues. Pricing details can be found at: http://justabitradical.com/advertise-with-jabr/ this starts cheap at $3.00 USD and goes up from there. 

The zine also accepts donations, which help keep us going–at: http://justabitradical.com/donate-to-jabr/

Hoping to see sales pick up. Thank you to everyone that’s supported us so far!

5 reasons why you should buy JABR

1. It’s amazing. No seriously. It’s got interviews from some wonderful LGBTQ* initiatives, famous musicians, and did I mention it’s pretty? Really. It is. It’s very aesthetically pleasing. 

2. Three people spent their entire 2012 working on this. Seriously. It was day in day out for 7 months, and to see we’ve only sold 8 copies so far kind of makes us sad. 

3. It’s not done yet! We have great stuff coming up in issue two, but we can’t bring that to you without support! 

4. It’s the 4th of July and what’s more patriotic than supporting an LGBTQ* youth magazine? I mean, that just screams ‘OEEER THE LAND OF THE FREEE, AND THE HOME OF THE BRAAAVE to me. Maybe I’m alone in that. Oh well. Still, seriously…Equal rights are everyone’s rights. LGBTQ* youth have been wanting this zine for a while (we did surveys!) and we can’t get it to anyone without some serious signal boosting!

5. Did I mention it’s really pretty and will help a lot of people? Oh. Well. Can’t hurt to mention it again.

 

If I’ve convinced you, check out: Magcloud, where you can buy an issue or leaf through the zine!

Ironing out some kinks…

On the website. It’s ‘live’ technically and most of the features work, such as the donation page and whatnot–but there are a few hiccups that are preventing an official launch. 

As a sneak peak for anyone interested, you can purchase the zine on Magcloud here:
