My Newest MY LITTLE PONY project: MY LITTLE PONY COLLECTOR Magazine!

 I've been working on this project for a few months off and on. Trying to figure out exactly what I wanted to include was the hardest part, but I feel like it is well on its way to shaping into something worthwhile. Glossi was a great platform to use since this is an experiment of sorts and I have little (other than time) invested in it. This is my first foray into a collector magazine and if you have feedback, I'd love to hear it. I plan on expanding the magazine in the future to include some past generation content, as well as possibly bringing a few other people on board to edit and write content. Plus, I've since learned that it will streamline things if I build the magazine outside of Glossi and simply import the pages and interactive page elements. As it stands, I have a bunch of raw images that can be linked by other users which isn't ideal. I wanted to keep it simple at first since I was on a bit of a learning curve.  MY LITTLE PONY COLLECTOR Magazine seemed like the perfect compliment to my other MLP related endeavors (The MY LITTLE PONY Fair and the Collector's Inventory books.) I have some other fun stuff up my sleeves as well, but they aren't quite ready to reveal. So take a moment, if you will, to read, enjoy, and share the first MY LITTLE PONY COLLECTOR Magazine.

This is too perfect! A couple years ago I thought of proposing something like this to Hasbro, but having you head it is just beyond amazing. :)

If you don't mind, I'd like to propose a couple of ideas to help expand the project...if you don't have the time to consider these things, I totally understand. :)

-a section dedicated to the profile of a long-time collector (changes every issue). I wouldn't mind volunteering. ;)
-a 10-or-so question quiz on your pony knowledge (every issue)
-a highlight on a specific pony line (i.e. Twinkle Eye ponies) or animated feature (also every issue)

I had a few more ideas and wrote them down, but don't remember where I put them.

Again, this is a wonderful endeavor and as a fellow collector, I truly appreciate all you are doing, Summer, for the rest of the MLP community!

God bless,
Bernadette (PrincessStarlily on the MLPArena)
