Learn More about Mikey Magazine
Mikey Magazine is a brand new free magazine publication created and published by The Crochet Crowd. It’s a dream publication of wanting more from a magazine than just high end projects and featuring people who we don’t really know too well. In a brainstorm in the summer of 2014, we thought to ourselves,
“What if there was a magazine that was made by an everyday crocheter for the everyday crocheter and include featuring everyday crocheters?”
How cool would it be that Crochet Crowders could be featured in a magazine for doing everyday projects, using … wait for it… everyday yarns! I know right, it seems like this is meant for us to stumble across the idea.
In keeping with the everyday crocheter and keeping in mind budgets. Why not let the crocheter use their extra money to buy yarn instead of a magazine subscription! Brilliant! Now… what do we need to do to make this happen?
Daniel and I aren’t publishers and so we had to start from the ground up. Nearly a year in development behind the scenes to learn new tricks, programming and purchasing software support to make it happen. Mikey Magazine was born.
Each week a new edition comes out, primarily on Tuesdays. It’s a huge task but we understand the importance of having everyday crocheters acknowledged for the work they accomplish. We randomly select photos from our Facebook Page that aligns with our theming and, of course, extend credit to the photographs being featured.
The magazine is completely digital as we are not doing any printing and mailing of our magazine. Printing magazine is a thing of the past. With us being able to show you the magazine on your electronic device and with options to download or print, you don’t have to worry about the environment for us wasting paper. Doing this electronically also keeps our costs down and allows us to provide you invaluable links throughout our magazine to steer you to trusted sources. It just makes sense in today’s generation.
