its been some time since I posted here about BrickJournal, and for those
wondering, no I havent fallen off the face of the earth. Far from it. And Ill
be telling you whats been going on...
BrickJournal has grown from an online magazine to print, and while doing so,
has covered events from Brickworld to FIRST LEGO League World Festival. With
this, the magazines Flickr archive has gathered over 30,000 photos from Europe
and the United States. In print we have printed 9 issues and have gone from
quarterly to bimonthly publication this year.
BrickJournals website has also changed this year, as its webhost was bought
by another service. The new site is cleaner, and while still a little empty, it
will eventually have selected articles from the magazine. Currently, it has
current news, exclusive information and instructions, and the Pic of the Day,
where a photo from the BrickJournal archive is presented.

from the website, my blog, and Flickr gallery. Its a one stop shop to see what
is going on with the magazine!
