Magic Appreciation Day: Congrats on 1,000 Episodes of MagicWeek!

Postby Zig Zagger » August 29th, 2019, 7:09 pm

Huge congrats to magic fellow Duncan Trillo from the UK for completing the first 1,000 episodes of his MagicWeek news service, which is published (you guessed it) weekly every Saturday. What a monster job, week after week since 1st July 2000!

Even though the news are heavily UK-oriented, I stop by often and usually find an interesting link or two to pursue. If you haven’t tried it yet, I do recommend you check out the site. But if you already are an avid reader, why don’t you give Duncan a shout on this occasion and also send him a note of appreciation for his constant, tireless service?!

You will find the latest edition and a lot of more magic stuff here: http://magicweek.co.uk/

I’m afraid we tend to take these things for granted too easily (in magic as well as elsewhere in life). And if you are not familiar with editorial work under the pressure of daily, weekly or monthly deadlines (which most people aren’t; I am), it’s easy to misjudge the huge and time-consuming effort behind digging up, checking, compiling and editing “just a couple of online news bits.”

Why don't we start a Magic Appreciation Day to celebrate and thank all our magic fellows who provide us with constant news, photos, podcasts, and other free services?!

I could think of more than a few who would deserve a special compliment, too. Any suggestions/thanks from you folks?
