For the past couple of months, I’ve been really thinkin’ hard about the future of Sonic Blume– it turns out that it’s a LOT of work to run a zine by yourself (even with the amazing work that our contributors and readers send us!), and there’s absolutely no way I can continue on at this pace and in this digital format. I’ve considered a bunch of things- posting less, moving strictly to print, or even completely ending Sonic Blume (sooooo dramatic, I know.)
BUT BEHOLD! THE NEW SONIC BLUME!
This will mean that you, dear pal, shall receive 2 amazing ONLINE posts per week! We are still taking submissions for online posts, so no worries! Your platform is intact and ready, as always, for your genius.
BUT THAT’S NOT ALL!
WHAT?! DID YOU READ THAT RIGHT? IS MY TERRIBLE ATTEMPT AT ANIMATION MARRING YOUR VISION?
- YES! YOU DID READ IT CORRECTLY!
- Also yes. You should probably see an ophthalmologist.
But for real, guys, Sonic Blume is going to be in print! Our first of many quarterly issues will be released this fall (late July to mid-August) and it’s gonna be AWESOME.
SONIC BLUME ISSUE #1 IS AVAILABLE FOR PREORDER NOW! And it only costs $6 domestically (that is, for United States addresses), and $8 internationally, for shipping reasons. There are NO hidden shipping costs, ya’ll. So basically, for the price of a Subway $5 Footlong (including tax and like, some chips maybe?), you can have 20+ PAGES OF PURE MAGIC, INSPIRATION, AND THE COOLEST MUSIC #CONTENT AROUND DELIVERED STRAIGHT TO YOUR MAILBOX! Can you believe it?
If you’d like to contribute to the print zine, by all means, please do! Submit juuuust like normal, and I’ll get back with ya to let you know if it works for print. Can’t wait to hear from ya!
Thank you all, times like, seven kajillion, for all of the love you’ve blasted Sonic Blume with for the past two months! It really is appreciated- this site would absolutely not be here without your contributions, whether they’ve been in the form of actual posts for the site or a sweet comment on our social media.
LOVE U, MUSIC 4EVER, & SEE YOU (AND THE INSIDE OF YOUR MAILBOX) SOON!
(PS- y’know that cute heart photo in the header of this post that you were just oogling at? It’s by Maddie Keyes-Levine. Thank you, Maddie!)
