Just for girls
Today we are excited be able to launch the "Just for Girls" section on our website! Go to www.strongmagazineforgirls.com and click on the tab in the top right hand corner to check it out. This section of the website will grow over time and will include some of the articles from the magazine as well as contributions from our readers. One of the pieces of feedback we got from the focus session we held in late July was that the girls would like to see:
a) more interactivity and
b) more from girls their own age.
We hope to use this part of the website in conjunction with the magazine itself to encourage our readers to interact and to send us stories and pictures about themselves that we can share. For now, it has the summer poll on it that's in issue 1 of STRONG as well as the all important question of the season: "Should there be summer homework?". In Issue 1 of STRONG two girls lay out the arguments for and against and here our readers will get the chance to tell us what they think! From this section of the website girls will also be able to submit reviews for the magazine as well as recipes, tips and photos.
Subscription page added
In other great news, we have also added a subscription page to the website. As many of you know, we raised $11,500 in pledges from 195 people during the Kickstarter campaign. Sadly, it wasn't enough to reach our goal but we are undeterred! If nothing else, the campaign showed that there are many, many of you out there who think that STRONG is a great concept and would like to see it become a reality. I am regrouping in order to launch another Kickstarter or fundraising project at a later date so please watch this space! For now though, you can purchase a subscription to STRONG! Please log on and click on the link to subscribe.
Once again, a huge thank you to everyone for all your support. I am learning so much as I go on this journey. It is my dream that STRONG becomes a magazine that all our girls can pick up and recognize some element of themselves in. I want them to see other girls just like them doing things they love, being the best version of themselves they can be and contributing in a meaningful way to society. In order to do that I need to hear from the girls themselves, so I hope you will encourage girls you know to log on and get in touch with their great stories!
Thanks again for your support.
