“It has been a while since I posted here.” Don’t you hate when someone writes that line? I do, but in my particular case, I am not at all ashamed or bothered by the fact that I haven’t posted in quite a while. The reason, besides having been busy working on an anthology book, is that The Free Bundle (Cabrera Brother’s own Newsletter Magazine) has gone through some big changes I want to quickly go through here with all of you.
Most notably, the homepage. The magazine cover now works differently for those visiting the magazine from their smartphones instead than from their computers web browsers. The decision was made internally to keep the homepage for the smartphone version clutter-free and allow quick access to the subscription box, something I wish more websites got around doing.
It simplifies life, it makes it easier to navigate over the phone and it translates into a great impact for those browsing the page from the palm of their hands.
The second change, besides the overall look of the website which now seems cleaner, happened to its content. From this day on, we are honored to feature interviews with some of the most relevant Sci-Fi writers on the scene. How about that. Besides the excellent articles and short stories written by indie authors we keep featuring week after week, we now have the luxury of being in company with some of the best there is out there.
Not bad for a few months of work.
P.S: bought me a Smith-Corona Secretarial (1970, wide carriage, electrical) used for about $8.00 and a Groma Kolibri (manual, 1960) for even less than that. Will do a proper post later next week (hopefully).
