Yes, I believe that is @Voicedrew's intent. If not, I'm sure one of us would be willing to pick it up. So keep that fire alive!

Well definitely be doing more of these. Maybe with different restrictions to keep things interesting. Maybe at the end of the year we'll compile them into an eminence.

I was reading @Eden's blog and as a consequence found out about https://bringback.blog/, an effort in January 2022 to get people to write blog posts. I thought that was pretty based, so I will be doing something similar on here.

Agora Road Travelogue
  1. Members will commit to writing 2 blog posts in this month of August.
  2. Authors will indicate, in some way, that they are participating in the Travelogue on the blog post they are submitting.
  3. Authors, upon publishing, must comment in this thread their 1) Article's title 2) Link to post 3) Date posted.
  4. Posts will be added to an RSS feed, the posts will be ordered chronologically.
  5. Submissions will close on August 31, 11:59 EST.
Q: What if I don't have a website to publish on?
A: Feel free to submit blog posts either here on Agora, (as @no_chill tends to), or publish on any of the many blogging sites (medium, for instance).

Q: Am I limited to 2 posts?
A: No, but you will need to submit at least 2 to be included in the final RSS Feed.

Q: Any restrictions on content?
A: Other than the content being one's own, no, but please do not abuse this.

Q: Is this restricted to members of Agora Road?
A: Submission are restricted to those who are members as of August 2.

Thank you to all who participate, write away!

No problem. The rule was simply in place to prevent this from happening. I will be strict with the deadline though.

My two entries would be one in English and one in Italian. Does this count?
Are the semantic contents of the articles different? Or are they the same article in both English and Italian. I will accept the former, but not the latter.

They are different, but one is a "journal" entry, so I'm ruling it out myself.
Alright folks, if we went through with the Ezine, what would we call it? It would release semi-annually. Please leave all your suggestions.
Travelers' Echoes or is it too banale?

I like Travelers' Echoes, It's got a perfect blend of artistic pretense and "ethereal" sounding vibe fit for a vaporwave forum, plus ECCO JAMS somewhere in there.

The Agoralog sounds like a potential pick.
A variation on Traveler's Echos? mayhaps?

The Anthalogia? This would be an anthology of blog posts, after all. Maybe a bit on the pretentious side, but it sounds awesome.

FYI, there's already an Ezine for AgoraRoad here. If you're going to make one, you'll have to deal with the different genres, styles and subjects of blogs people have. It's possible to make blogs in foreign languages, on technical topics, on wider topics, as stories, with images, videos and files included, and with other embeded media. You can easily put images in a pdf, but videos, files, games and other embedded media don't translate over well.
Personally, I'm all for a zine, but the focus should be given some thought.

As for a name? I dunno. Maybe ChatGPT has some thoughts?

I like the sound of "Agora Almanac", and "Vaporwave Vistas" or "Vaporwave Voyages". Also Kek at "Spectrum Threads: Agora Assembled". I wonder what spectrum it's referring to there :drinkBleach:
Speak of the devil... Looks like Pirate set up the thread for the 4th zine:agpepsi:
