My zine era lasted not very long. I had to handwrite, scan, photocopy, staple and mail out zines to etsy customers. I had to reply promptly to emails and show up (on time) for zine festivals. Sometimes I made some cash. Sometimes I got hungry and ate some chips. These are some good times from the KC POP (2011-2011) days:
