If I think really hard, and way back........I've wanted to publish a magazine for a very long time. Eons in fact. Which equates to nearly a lifetime.
I'm so happy to announce that it is finally happening. I am making my own dream come true. In addition to graphic designer, marketing consultant, writer, blogger, cook, photographer........you can now add online magazine publisher to my list of titles. I am working on the Issuu platform which allows you to design the most wonderful publication on your end, upload it and have it transformed into online magazine format. If you've never heard of it, you should have a look around.
The Muse will focus on inspired and creative living, just like this blog does.
I've been pulling ideas and pieces of the magazine together and worked on it a good part of the weekend. Forget the rest of my list. I was so excited about what I was doing, that I was in that zone. You know the one when you put your head down to do something, and when you look up again, the day is done. I am quite happy with the way it is progressing and I think you are going to love the final product. It is looking gorgeous if I do say so myself.
If you are a small business owner/artist/maker and want to reach new people there are advertising opportunities available. The Muse will be distributed via this blog as well as all of my social media outlet. Add to that Issuu targeted distribution and The Muse has the potential to reach millions of avid online magazine readers with like-minded interests all over this world. Talk about exciting. I can barely contain myself. I'd love to show you a taste of the magazine, but I think it's better left for the launch. There is a little peak into the table of contents page below as it currently stands, but that's it. Trust me though, it's going to be beautiful and chock full of interesting things from interviews and recipes, to DIYs and inspiration. You do not want to miss your chance to be part of it, but you have to act quick because this is all happening now! Ad booking deadline is this Friday, December 6th at noon e.s.t. Ad files must be received by Sunday, December 8th at noon e.s.t. (preferably in jpeg or png format).
I'll need your support in this endeavor. I'm hoping that you'll like The Muse so much that you'll share it with your friends and family. My mission is to make it a well-received success, so I can started on the second one right away.
I know I can count on you to help me get this off the ground in tremendous fashion, because you guys are the best.
Ciao for now,
