That is a bit of a shame, but hey, that is how the cookie goes mouldy.
I don't know if what I was thinking about would really "contribute" to PoFo Monthly since I was planning to just ramble on about various subjects in the blog and not really provide any real formative point of view - least of all any answers to anything really.

Unfortunately, a PoFo Quarterly is probably more realistic. But at least it will allow more and better quality articles from more posters. What do you think?
I think a quarterly might have a better chance. But really I think you have to organise it a bit like a real magazine. Have deadlines for articles, a publication date, goals that people wishing to get into the publication have to meet. That way everyone is on the same page as to when things have to be in for the publication. If you run it on a flexible, on the fly, kind of schedule, there is not much of an incentive for authors to get their tails into gear, write their articles, and get them vetted on time for publication. But then again, this is something most people do in their spare time, so the urge to be "on time" is just not there as had this been their day job.

I so know how you feel, too many projects, not enough hours in the day.
