Issue 18: From The Editor In Chief
Welcome to issue 18 of FEMDOM Magazine! It’s been a wild ride….
I vividly remember walking through the grounds of The Dominion late in 2008 and running in to our now Managing Editor Madeleine Broome. She said something along the lines of, “Hey, I think I can help on your magazine.” To say I didn’t know what I was doing would be a gross understatement. I had put the call out for help with a magazine, but past the initial thought had little idea of how to proceed. Madeleine talked about things like “good writing,” “standards,” and “objectivity.” My mind reeled at all the things I hadn’t considered.
“Holy shit,” I thought. “I better get my act together and take her up on this.”
It’s horrid to think what this magazine would have been like if Madeleine, with her real life journalistic education and experience, hadn’t taken pity on me. So to Madeleine, who is as much, if not more, responsible than anyone for making FEMDOM Magazine happen for over three years, thank you. Thank you for keeping us honest, keeping us fair, pushing us to raise the bar and for maintaining our standards. We couldn’t have done it without you.
When we put out our very first issue of FEMDOM Magazine we had no idea about publishing programs or even how to produce a magazine inworld. Our Creative Director, Maztor Giles, took it upon himself to figure it all out, from cutting, pasting, and photoshopping every single page (well over 100) of our first issue to custom building the scripts for the inworld version. Maz gave the magazine its look and style and continued to make amazing improvements over three years. Thank you Maz for your support with the magazine, for putting up with my last minute “emergency” demands, and for everything you have done to make this project happen. We couldn’t have done it without you, either.
To the staff of FEMDOM Magazine, past and present, who have worked tirelessly with little thanks and no compensation, thank you. You did the heavy lifting and the legwork. You came up with the image and story ideas, then went out and made them happen. Thank you for your support to me personally, and for the contributions you have made to the greater Femdom community in and out of Second Life. I am immensely proud of what we have produced together. What else can I say, but well done everyone!
As we announced in issue 17, this will be our last “regular” issue. We look forward to special releases and occasional articles on our website, FEMDOMmag.com, but in future will publish when inspired, not according to any deadline. Content from our previous issues and special features will remain on our website. Until our next release we hope you’ll take time to catch up on some of the outstanding articles and photo features you may have missed during our 3+ years of publication. The website, www.FEMDOMmag.com, will remain active indefinitely. We hope you, dear readers, our supporters and cheerleaders, will continue to enjoy our work. Thank YOU for your support and kind words. You’ve made it all worthwhile.
Until next time,
