First post here.
Ok, so I have been using Linux for many years now...since I was 11. Of course, Mint was not my first distro. I have used numerous distros over the years, and two years back, I tried Linux Mint and haven't looked anywhere else ever since.
I am not an open source puritan, though. I work in web design/dev, and I sometimes have to turn towards non-free tools (sadly).
That said, for the past month or so, I have had an idea about starting a website or online mag about Linux Mint -- not Linux in general, not open source in general, but entirely Linux Mint. Much like Full Circle.... though of course, the focus will be entirely on Mint.
Unlike Full Circle, I intend not to offer the mag as a PDF or anything, but instead follow the lines of an online magazine site. A good specimen might be OMGubuntu.co.uk or Mobilemag.com or even (dare I say) Macworld.
This can, obviously, not be seen as a replacement for the community sites or tutorials. Just an additional non-official site for those interested. WordPress has got many -- wptavern, wpbeginner, wplift, wphub (add .com to each).
I can write a few articles (I have experience with Linux/dev/design, etc.), even manage the web design or development or management part (most likely will employ WordPress), but obviously, I can't write everything single-handedly.
I am posting this thread to invite all/any who are interested in being part of this. You can contribute articles (tutorials, short pieces, even opinion pieces), possible logos, or even suggest a name for the site? This is a non-profit, non-commercial venture -- I am willing to invest in hosting and other site management expenses, but I got no dollars to pay you for your articles/time. Sorry!
I am really serious and keen on this website -- I have been using Mint for a few years, and no other distro has come even close to this (not even Ubuntu -- yeah I mean it). I really wish to start a website about it. My initial idea was to just write a one-person blog about all things related to Linux Mint, but then I thought it'd be wiser to get a pulse of the community and see if there are any folks who'd be interested in being a part of this.
Guess I have typed enough. I will be waiting for all replies and feedback. How does this idea sound to you? Thanks!
