Congratulations on your new business.
Ezine publishing is a multi-faceted creature. If you're looking to do some research for an article, here's what I suggest:
1) I'd be glad to be interviewed on the phone by you, just send me a private message.
2) Purchase and read "Start Your Ezine: The Complete Fluff-Free Guide for the New Publisher" available at http://StartYourEzine.com
3) Visit the resources available at http://EZezine.com/resources.html
4) Visit the infinite pool of resources at Christopher Knight's site at http://Ezine-Tips.com
If you have more specific questions, feel free to post them to the cafe here.

| Hello. Lisa I really love your EZezine.com site. I joined with the free membership and have been looking around. Do you have templates that we can choose from? I plan to be a paying member soon but this is a big issue for me since I'm not sure how to go about it without a prepared template. I would like to offer the option of html or text to my subscribers. I did download the manual and read it, and it was very helpful but still this question remains. I am in the process of subscribing to some ezines to get some ideas of what others are able to create. Is it possible to buy a template somewhere and load it to my account after I upgrade? Also, do you have any links to some good logo resources? Your EZezine logo is perfect. I love the simplicity of your site. |
Thanks for your help.

I am catching up on some Ryze mail and since your post was a while ago, my suggestion might be outdated for you.
Are you setting up your own web pages? If so you can simply use that as your template.
I set my ezine up in Dreamweaver, which I use for my sites, and I copy the HTML code and paste it in the ezezine form. When I mentioned that to Julie Jordan Scott, she started sending out her monthly ezine using her web page design as her "template."
I keep copies of each issue of my ezine on my site, inserted within my regular page format. For an example see http://www.eteletours.com/ptpintro.html. I simply use the body content for the email version. Pick out one on the archives - http://ezezine.com/home/1866/ - to see what it looks like when it's mailed out.
I hope this helps. Much success to you.
