A new post series on the Zine: weekly inspiration

Readers of the GoMediaZine, we listened and heard you

After our call to you guys for improvements, one of the main suggestions was for more regular content. We are working hard to get tutorials and tests and other goodies together for that.

The other way we’d like to provide more of that recurring and high quality content to you is also by creating a new post series on the Zine: the Weekly Inspiration. Think about it a bit like the Daily Inspiration in place at Abduzeedo.

How is it going to work?

Well it’s quiet simple actually. From Monday to Thursday, just tweet us (@Go_Media) sweet and inspiring stuff: photos, drawing, posters, architecture, you name it. In order for us to figure out what is what in the flow of information, use the #gmzinspiration hashtag. On Fridays, we’ll pick and choose from the links you sent over and publish the content here on the Zine. How’s that?

We’re pretty excited to launch this, and looking forward to what you have to share with us and the world!

    Sounds pretty good, except that I – Like many others – do not tweet.We appreciate the effort, though I think there needs to be a little tighter focus on what can be posted. I also hope that it won’t just be posting of images, but that there will be some real content, like an associated article or tutorial or tip at the very least. Thanks again.

      Just images can work…as a once a week type deal, but when it’s every day it become monotonous, and that’s when it starts to get annoying.

      Hey Vince, thanks for the feedback.

      As Jon said down below, this weekly post is more about engaging and sharing stuff we like. And the goal is to be a tad lighter, so tutorial I don’t think so, but it could become indications of tutorials to come?

        I agree, maybe not tutorials.  I automatically compared to abduzeedo’s daily inspiration, tons of images, lots of decent images, but inspirational? not really. anyway, I think it could work if done correctly. Good luck guys. Also, as far as content, just images can be content if you are specific, like this week: Spaghetti, or robot zombies. I guess I would say that just a bunch of images isn’t going to cut it.

          Well, themed content wasn’t in our book at first, but it could be a good idea too.

          I have to say that a “wall of image” could be really inspiring sometimes, but that’s just me. We’ll definitely adjust as we go though, it’s not a set in stone formula.

            I agree a ‘wall of images’ can be inspiring sometimes, but remember that you’ll be getting work from readers who are all on different levels. I’m looking forward to this.

    Thanks for the comment. As the editors of the Zine, we’ve set out a list of goals that we’d like to achieve. This weekly inspiration post is helping us achieve several things:

    1. Provide inspiration and high-quality content to our readers

    2. Engage the design community at large

    3. Feature talented artists and designers, providing an opportunity for exposure

    4. Find talent and interested people to write tutorials or articles.The weekly inspiration post isn’t going to feature any heavy content, but it will be high quality and give us a way to find people to write in the future.
