first i must point out my use of idioms :P thanks DSW, you teach me a lot - at least when dictionaries can translate your English (:

just wanted to share some photos of my magazine. today is the first anniversary of my first visit to printing center, and 4 days later my magazine will be 1 year old (: i will send copies of 5 issues to you, if you send your adress information to our magazine's e-mail adress. contact me for that, please (: i know you will not understand even a single word, but this forum helped me a lot to improve my english, and i met with different "worlds" and points of view in this forum, you're not really aware of that but this forum has a great role in my evolution. so, those copies can be considered as remnants of my gratitude to you all, especially gumtree (:

it all began with this: Image

i remember as if it was yesterday... the happiness of that was beyond words. it was the first time i "created" a real thing, and though it was a bit "lame", many praised us, thanks to our sincere enthusiasm.

me, after having our first interview with a well-known musician:

Image

and after second issue, American artist Sidney Eileen designed our logo:

Image

and then, all four issues! "poor but proud" as we say in Turkey (:

Image

and me, designing pages of the magazine. tired, sleepless, hungry but still able to smile (:

Image

so, thank you all, flufflanders. as i said before, you were not aware of it, perhaps, but you helped me to evolve, you helped me to become open-minded as much as i can... my magazine is not a great success in fact, but as we say in Turkey, we made it with blood and tears, so it means a lot to us, the crew. so, i couldn't prevent myself from showing my gratitude to all who helped me even a bit.

after two sleepless nights, and can't having a shower because you are soo obsessive that you can't take a shower when a lady is around, and eating less than you usually eat because you're a guest in two ladies' apartment and they prefer vegetables; that smile is a great success :D

Ultimate English praise : "Jolly well done!" :D


So glad you've put Siyah Beyaz up for everyone to see - great post and great photos - congratulations on surviving whole year, producing a quality professional magazine with minimal resources and managing even that smile on a vegie diet!

Long may you and Siyah Beyaz prosper :D

many thanks milady, the crew ventures everything, even robbing a bank, to ensure the magazine's survival :P

these few weeks will be a "turning point" i feel, hope i'll come with good news in a short while.

thanks for sharing my happiness! (:

First time I've been on first name terms with a media mogul. Seriously though, great stuff mate. (What's the Turkish spelling for 'Murdoch'?)

Congratulations Tony. Your English has improved brilliantly since the last time I spoke to you. That you have your own magazine is a fantastic achievement. The next step is an English language version maybe?

vaow it has been a long time (:

thanks Moshei (: maybe, but you know, an English version wouldn't be very "charming" because the magazine is mostly consisted of poems, and many of those poems would lose their "artistic" value when translated (:

But if we manage to be counted among the most well-known magazines of Turkey, we can publish it bilingual, adding some English pages especially for those foreigners who live in Istanbul (:
