The Mud Life Issue 9 December 2019
Hello again, we should stop meeting like this! Actually no, keep subscribing and keep reading – please!
Welcome to the latest issue of The Mud Life Magazine.
Although The Mud Life, in website form, has actually been going since 2016, this issue is a special one for us, as it marks the magazine’s…
I’m not going to say it’s been a busier year when it comes to vehicle launches and shows, but it’s certainly been more full on as we now have deadlines to work to. Previously I would put a review on the website whenever it was completed, now I have to be a lot more organised, and no more procrastinating!
So far this year we’ve seen 35 press cars sat outside Muddy Towers, it would be more, but we decided that we needed to use our 1996 Toyota Surf (Deux Smurf) more, so we’re now aiming for around three a month. This ‘sacrifice’ gives us the opportunity to explore more green lanes in her, so keep an eye out for more adventures next year.
At the time of writing the magazines have been read nearly 13,000 times, and personally I think that’s an amazing achievement considering not a penny has been spent on advertising.
On the subject of money, you will be pleased to hear that The Mud Life remains free to read, even though those more qualified than me often advise against it. You may have also noticed that not only have we welcomed some advertisers to the magazine over the last few months, but as you’ll read elsewhere, we decided to create a Patreon page to help fund the magazine.
That’s it from me, enjoy issue 9 and we hope you have a wonderful Christmas & New Year.
Thanks again for all your support, and see you all in 2020!
Damian, Editor-in-Chief, and Karen Lee, Creative Director
