I'm going nuts over trying to decide if I should take a leap and start an online magazine. It's something that I've been thinking about since before I found out I was pregnant. Then after I got pregnant with Moo, I really started to dream of doing a magazine that combined all aspects of my life-motherhood, fashion, marriage, etc. I realize that to some reading this I may sound nuts.
After all I've got this blog, my Etsy shop, two kids at home 24/7, a marriage and other stuff. But since I'm kicking my bad habit of procrastinating to the curb, I feel like I could make an honest of go this. It's more like I need to make an honest go of this. It's time that I get more serious about my YUMMommy/YUMMommies brand.
This is a legacy that I'm leaving to my kids one day. I want to make sure that my legacy and work is something they will be proud to carry on and pass down to their kids. I want to make my mark on this world beyond just being a blogger. Most importantly, I want to help others fulfill their dreams of getting their voices out there.
My JET Magazine feature opened so many doors and put me on so many people's radar that I need to pay it forward. Plus, the upside to all of this is that I've site that where I can publish an online magazine for FREE! That way once I get everything aligned and ready to go for a test run, I'm not really losing any money. And of course, there's always the old-fashioned way of using MS Publisher and converting it to a PDF.
Either way, I've been praying really hard about this and I think I'm finally building up the courage to start work on the first issue. I know in my gut that this has the potential to be a success. However, undertaking a task that will be so time consuming scares me. Will I find the time to make it work? How will others respond to this magazine?
Will I be able to find quality writers? Sponsors? Sometimes, the road to success is scary. But the it's time to sink or swim. And I really want to swim.
