As I alluded to on Friday, I have some exciting news to reveal! A little while ago, I was approached by a great magazine called 2 for Couples about my Hello! Neighbor posts. They were looking for some design content for their new ipad app and thought my house tours of Toronto homes would be a great fit.
Well, hello! Yes, I would be interested! I've always been absolutely fascinated (some might say obsessed) with the magazine industry and to finally be a part of it was in essence a dream come true. The thought of having my own monthly column (so to speak) is beyond exciting for me. You know that saying, "if you build it, they will come" well it's true. I think so many of us have a hidden talent or dream and for whatever reason we drag our feet or make excuses and don't do it but I think if you just do it and absolutely pour your heart and soul into it the results will follow. (Sorry, that's a bit sappy but it's true!)
If you happen to own an ipad (sadly, I don't but that might have to change!) you can download the first issue of the app here for free! You'll notice that we've added a few extra touches; a photo of the couple, an extended interview, and a "how to get the look" page. I'm really happy with the way it has turned out. Of course, none of this would have happened if Kristin hadn't been aboard. Her photos are what make these Hello! Neighbor stories so great. She has a knack for bringing rooms to life. Thank you, Kristin!
Each month, 2 for Couples will run a new Hello! Neighbor story on the ipad with the same extended content. Thanks to everyone over at 2 for Couples but especially Diane and Kelly for getting this thing off the ground. And hey, if you're getting married sometime soon (101 bridal gowns app - need I say more!) or you're planning on doing some entertaining check out some of 2's other ipad apps. So much great content!
So, that's a little taste of it ....what do you think? I would love to hear your thoughts!
