WELCOME TO THE CFZ BLOG NETWORK: COME AND JOIN THE FUN

Half a century ago, Belgian Zoologist Bernard Heuvelmans first codified cryptozoology in his book On the Track of Unknown Animals.

The Centre for Fortean Zoology (CFZ) are still on the track, and have been since 1992. But as if chasing unknown animals wasn't enough, we are involved in education, conservation, and good old-fashioned natural history! We already have three journals, the largest cryptozoological publishing house in the world, CFZtv, and the largest cryptozoological conference in the English-speaking world, but in January 2009 someone suggested that we started a daily online magazine! The CFZ bloggo is a collaborative effort by a coalition of members, friends, and supporters of the CFZ, and covers all the subjects with which we deal, with a smattering of music, high strangeness and surreal humour to make up the mix.

It is edited by CFZ Director Jon Downes, and subbed by the lovely Lizzy Bitakara'mire (formerly Clancy), scourge of improper syntax. The daily newsblog is edited by Corinna Downes, head administratrix of the CFZ, and the indexing is done by Lee Canty and Kathy Imbriani. There is regular news from the CFZ Mystery Cat study group, and regular fortean bird news from 'The Watcher of the Skies'. Regular bloggers include Dr Karl Shuker, Dale Drinnon, Richard Muirhead and Richard Freeman.The CFZ bloggo is updated daily, and there's nothing quite like it anywhere else. Come and join us...

IS THERE A MARKETING WHIZZ-KID IN THE HOUSE?

My late mother always said that in our family it was considered rather vulgar to talk about money. This is probably why I have never had any.

We are, as far as I am aware, the biggest publisher of books on cryptozoology and allied disciplines in the world, but the cold, hard truth is that we do not sell anywhere near as many books as people often think. As a result our cash flow isn't very good and we cannot always afford to do the things we would like to.

I know that every good boy listens to his mother, but I think the time has come to drag the CFZ into the 21st Century as far as the capitalist ethic is concerned.

Is there anyone reading this blog who has any experience in either marketing or publicity, and who would not mind lending a bunch of well-meaning dunceheads a hand?
