I was fortunate to attend a live show of Paperclipping Newsbreak at CHA summer 2009. Noell & Nancy had a panel of guests talking about the industry, trends & just fun chatting. It was exciting to get the insight into the publishing and industry sides of scrapbooking. Hearing about this aspect of scrapbooking really spurred my creativity & helped me to understand how the magazines choose the layouts they showcase & what they are looking for. The trend & quality of online publishing is advancing monthly; which will quickly take the place of paper magazines & books. Ella Publishing's creators Lain Ehmann & Angie Lucas shared during that podcast how this allows the publishers to be more current on the material they publish since the lead time is much less than paper. I think this was the best PCNB episode & I'm so glad they have chosen to expand on this format.
Paperclipping Roundtable will be taking the cues from the former show & bringing in guests each week to expand the topcis available to be focusing on. I really enjoy hearing the guests talk about the future of scrapbooking & creating an online community to replace all those lost LSS & crop groups we so miss. It also is a treat to get to know the "celebrity" scrappers & listening to what they are up to. Hearing about the past & present of scrapbooking from their eyes & where they feel that scrapbooking will go. Sharing their asperations how they will "help" keep the industry fresh & exciting. It amazes me how fostering my knowledge of the indsutry as a whole really sparks my creativy & passion. Noell is great about digging deeper & asking the questions we all would want to ask if we were speaking to the guest. Nancy brings a wealth of business& technical knowledge and everyday sensibilities to the conversation and asks things that I wouldn't even think of asking but it helps me to see the industry in a different perspective.
The Picks of the Week really is a great resourse. I loved hearing the reviews of the products out there. Since most of us are trying to be frugal it helps to take some of the guesswork about if a product does what it promises. Ana's review of the Xyron Creatopia was fantastic. You can tell she really put it to the test.
Head on over & listen to the premier episode that is already the top hobby podcast on itunes & #35 of all podcasts!
