Things have been busy around here lately -- namely because of one thing:
While I love Etzcetera very, very much -- I knew that now I knew the online publishing ropes a little better, I wanted to launch a sister publication. Jot was my chance to do all the things that worked with Etzcetera and avoid the things that didn't.
I LOVE Project Life and while I don't really make scrapbooking layouts much anymore, I am a big believer in capturing the everyday in photos + little stories and Project Life allows me to pull all that info together in an easy documenting type way!
And it seems that LOTS of other people feel the same way about Project Life.
Jot was the opportunity to bring together projects, stories, articles, interviews products and ideas for the modern day memory keeper. I've banged on enough about the whole everyday photos/telling stories/pocket scrapbooking thing so I won't do that now..
But after much planning, sourcing, making, editing, proofing and work, work, working.. JOT was born 21 June 2013.
Exactly 7 months ago today.
It's been a whirlwind. A huge learning curve (because really, it doesn't matter HOW much you know, theres always new things to learn, processes to streamline and systems to set up), exciting, overwhelming, awesome and exhausting.
Each issue continues to gain momentum and our circulation figures continue to rise. Each issue sits at around the 300,000 readership mark. Which is ENORMOUS. The numbers still do my head in. I have a brilliant team of girls around me plus regular contributors who continue to inspire and amaze me with their projects and ideas. I believe the content we deliver is exceptional and of a very high calibre.
And today it's time to reveal Issue 4.
Like with all the issues I publish, I hold my breath for just a little bit on launch day and hope that the issue is well recieved! I do get a little bit nervous!! But then the lovely comments start to come in and I can I exhale and relaaaax!
Feel free to share our new issue with your creative friends. Share it on facbeook, add it to your own blog or other social media places. We want you to share Jot with your friends and family.. we want Jot to reach as many memory keepers as possible. We want Jot to be enjoyed!
