Just wanted to update you all on how things were going with STRONG. I was hoping to actually launch the Kickstarter campaign this week but it turns out you have to submit your campaign for review with the Kickstarter team – makes sense when you think about it!
Which means I’m awaiting an email from the lovely people at Kickstarter to tell me it’s OK to launch – and it looks as though that may come towards the middle of next week.
In the meantime I’m working hard on my marketing. I’ve written a press release and have compiled a list of bloggers who write on parenting teens and tweens, as well as people and organizations who work to try to empower women and girls, so that I’ll be ready to let the world know once the Kickstarter launches! I’ve also got a couple of interviews lined up to help spread the word.
I have been so touched by how many people have reached out to me – offering to write articles to help me publicize the project, offering help with preparation for photo shoots and also putting me in touch with other magazine founders. I’ve had people message me with ideas for articles for future issues and have been put in contact with some amazing women who have inspiring stories to tell and who are keen to write for STRONG and become involved.
Thank you all! Please keep all the offers of help coming. I really appreciate them! Also, please keep talking about the magazine and spreading the word. The more people we can tell about STRONG the more likely it is that this magazine will actually make it into print – which would be great for me and just FANTASTIC for all our girls!
I’ll update you all again soon!
