I may have mentioned before that I want to start a windsor/SW Ontario/Canada-centric online magazine, called The Loaf.  I have been discussing it with [livejournal.com profile] geeky_linz over the past few months, but life kept getting in my way of REALLY pursuing it.  

What I have in mind is sort of a blog/collection site, with weekly/monthly contributors that will be creating dynamic content.  I envision 4 main sections:
  • Read - book reviews, original literature (short stories, micro-fiction, poetry, drama, creative non-fiction, essays)
  • Blog - 3-5 bloggers, plus weekly "side-by-side" blogs that will discuss an issue
  • Look - photo essays, travel, webcomics, and art
  • Hear - music reviews, and a Podcast (to be started at a date TBD)
Overall I want about 10-15 regular contributors, plus an unlimited number of guest contributors who will provide additional content. I have a few potential people who are interested whom I know locally, but I really want to get new writers and artists to contribute content.

What we are looking for:
  • 10-15 regular writers and contributors who will generate daily, weekly, or monthly content
  • 5 serious and steady bloggers to contribute daily or weekly content
  • an Assistant content editor
  • guest writers/artists to contribute content on a single-time basis
Even though I want to focus on Canada, I have NO problems with getting international writers to talk about international ideas. So if you have friends who may be interested in contributing, please pass the word along and point them over to me.

8mmdesign.com will be creating our website for us, they have done some FANTASTIC dynamic community-based websites in the past and I am really looking forward to working with them to create an online presence and brand for us.

If you are interested in contributing, please either leave me a comment here or email me at helbich@gmail.com and we can organize content review and delivery.

  • 00:11 Marvin peed on the floor earlier - not sure what caused it, I think stress from us forcing him to take medicine. #
  • 00:12 @loristleone boo on teething! Give Rosie my love (my grandmother swore by a little whiskey, and noone turned out awful! J/K!!) #
  • 10:38 morning = sadness. Also, Marvin snored at the foot of the bed all night, he was very cute. #
  • 11:49 Marvin is definitely still snoring when he sleeps, it is really cute <# #
  • 19:00 grocery shopping went well today, also went to the library. Need to stop by mom's and pick up fabric for making diapers. #
