Indie Newsstand: Pure & Papercut

I’m a big fan of independent publications, so when I come across magazines I enjoy, I like to share! Right now, I’m reading Pure and Papercut.

Pure is created in Portugal and available online (free, baby!) as a downloadable PDF. Fine, I don’t actually read it since my knowledge of Portuguese is limited to Teena Marie songs (RIP Lady Tee), but it’s fun to look at the pictures and see what they’re up to on their blog.

Papercut is dedicated to the emerging fashion community, and focuses on art, culture, and current events. Also: pretty pictures!

The Editor

Even if you don’t run an indie magazine, you can run your blog like an editor! I have a weird, lifelong love for forms–when I was little, I used to take stacks of deposit slips and mailing forms from the bank and post office and fill them out for fun. Yes, that IS as sad as it sounds. Go ahead and laugh. I’ll wait.

Luckily, Terra Black developed The Editor, a blogging planner that helps satiate my slightly OCD organizational tendencies by providing plenty of boxes and lines and note-taking space to scribble ideas and strategery.

Have I ever mentioned the time I spent, like, two hours picking out the perfect planner and portfolio at Staples ON MY BIRTHDAY? No? Let’s forget I mentioned that, then…

    As another person with slightly OCD organizational tendencies, I am delighted to see you mention The Editor. I saw it in the PR Couture newsletter last week and I knew immediately that I had to have it! I will definitely be snagging it sooner rather than later; your testimonial only serves to further solidy my intention to get it 🙂
