I’ve started an e-magazine! As a little extra for readers who are subscribed to my newsletter I’ve started a new monthly music magazine called groovin’.
In these uncertain times, I know so many of us have been struggling to stay motivated and have been lacking in inspiration for our content. As a result of this I found myself reassessing my own blog content. I wasn’t feeling inspired to write about a lot of my usual topics. But the one thing that remains to be a passion for me is music.
So now I’m at a point where I’m trying to re-spark my creativity. And I think that putting some time into developing other little projects like my own mini magazine could be the perfect place to start!
You’ll know by now that music is one of my main passions. Sharing playlists, discovering new tracks and listening to great film soundtracks are some of my favourite ways to spend my time. Over the past few years of running my blog, I’ve been trying to find new ways to share music with you. Last years music monthly series was a fun start, and this year The Legend Slot has already been an interesting series to work on. But I wanted to do even more. Which is how I came up the idea of groovin’.
So my thought process with groovin’ is to share that little bit extra. Whether that be some songs that I’ve been loving recently, mini reviews of albums, old tunes that I’ve rediscovered or something else. Hopefully it’ll be something that you’ll enjoy having a read through.
What can you expect?
There are a few things that I’ll be sharing in every issue of groovin’ as regular segments within it. But on top of that I might be adding some other bits to the issues depending on what I’m feeling each month. The main three are:
An update on my latest blog content that focuses on music
You’ll probably know all about my new series The Legend Slot by now, which will make a quick feature in each issue this year. Simply because I’ll be continuing with the series throughout 2020. But I’ll also be giving an update on any other music content that I create each month, whether that be playlists, reviews, song recommendations or new artists that I’ve come across.
An album that I’ve been loving
This will be more of a review style piece, which is something that I don’t necessarily post a lot of here on the blog (maybe something to add in the future though!). I’ll be picking out an album that I’ve been enjoying that month and give a quick little review of it.
Recommendations of newly released songs
Here I’ll be choosing a couple of newly released tracks that I’ve been listening to a lot throughout the month. This one won’t be quite as review-y as the album reviews. It’ll be more of a quick description of each track in a sentence or two.
A Little Preview of March’s Issue…
The first issue of the magazine went out this week but it isn’t too late to sign up and get your copy! Here’s a quick preview of the sort of thing that you can expect to receive each month.
I’m very much still in the beginning phase of this little venture but I’m excited to see where it goes. Something that I do want to know is what your thoughts are on the new mag. If you’ve received your copy, let me know what you thought of it. And if you’re liking the sound of it then make sure to sign up and feedback to me your thoughts!
I want it to be something that reflects what you want from an e-mag, so if there’s something specific that you’d like me to focus on in the magazine then I’d love to know what it is! Either comment below or drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
