You Get What You Work For, Not What You Wish For – Unknown
This little series is well and truly on it’s way. I’m loving it each week and hope you guys are to! If one person can take something from these posts then I’m over the moon with that!!
Here’s a few posts of what I’ve covered so far:
This week I wanted to talk about a Blog Magazine I recently subscribed to – BLOGOSPHERE.
The lovely Nikki told me about this subscription. Previously I had never heard of it! When we where at The Blogger Festival we also saw a stand for the magazine. So, seeing it twice in the space of two weeks, I decided I had to have a deeper look.
“Blogosphere – a print publication written by bloggers for bloggers – launched in October 2013”
The magazine subscription is £30. This includes:
4 issues of the print magazine every year with 190+ pages
Save 7% with a lowest price guarantee *
Be first to read every issue, before it hits the shelves
Direct delivery to your door with FREE UK shipping
Free 32-page events supplement
Exclusive Subscriber Rewards including event alerts and posters
From the moment I hit purchase I was eagerly awaiting the package. I was not prepared for how big they where. I just assumed it would be a standard mag size – WRONG. They are huge!! AND if you think they are ad heavy, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find they are not! I could not wait to crack into them!
I have now read both cover to cover and could not be happier with them.
They include Interviews, blogger stats, social media tips, fabulous pictures and so much more. I highly recommend sitting down to read them with a pen, pad and a stack load of post its!
Not interested in a yearly subscription?? Don’t panic, you can buy them in store singularly. Check Stockists here.
Most niches are also covered and this is how the magazines are divided up. Beauty, Lifestyle, Travel, Fitness, Fashion, Photography, Parenting, and Food. If your blog covers any of these you need to check it out. The best thing for me was being able to have these bloggers listed out for me so I could check them out and see how I was doing in comparison. (I Know, I know, not something I should do BUT we all are at it…. I’m blaming human nature)
It makes finding bloggers you relate to and niches you don’t necessarily cover but like to keep up on very easy.
I’d also like to mention is the quality of the magazine, it’s super rich and luxurious. The paper quality is to die for!!
I am so glad I subscribed and found this arm of blogging. I love how it’s physical, I can hold it and be “offline” with it. It’s another tool in my blogging arsenal. By being a subscriber I can also find out about their meet ups and events. Sadly I’ll miss the next one as I’m away which is heart breaking BUT I’ll make sure to keep an eye for the next and make sure I’m in London for it.
