What Happened When a Magazine Editor Found My Blog

I haven’t written many blog posts lately but it doesn’t mean I haven’t been writing because I have…for a magazine!

It was just a normal day when I logged on my computer to check my emails and there was one from a Magazine Editor! She said she had stumbled across my blog and asked if I would like to be a Regular Contributor to a magazine!Β It was so exciting to read, such a great surprise! Β I was shocked that someone thought my writing would be good enough to be in print but it really meant a lot to learn that someone did. It felt like a fantastic opportunity and I very quickly replied yes!

The magazine is a monthly lifestyle and events publication for those living in East Anglia which is the region in England where I live. I’ve got my own monthly column where I write about what’s happening near me and I also take on additional features. One of the first features I wrote was about Christmas party venues. I wrote it in July ready for it to come out in September! I’m someone who really loves Christmas so I didn’t mind thinking about it that early!

Working on the magazine I’m sure will really improve my writing skills. It’s very different to blog writing. With my blog, I choose all the topics, the word counts and the deadlines. For the magazine these are set Β for me which brings new writing challenges.

My first magazine came out this month and it was so exciting to see. Here’s to many more articles!
