By now you've probably all noticed that I've taken a bit of a break from my typical blogging calendar to share more about a BIG new project - RUBY magazine.
RUBY is an idea I've been playing with for a few years now and, while we've still got a road to launch, I'm really encouraged by all of the support surrounding our Kickstarter campaign. I expected to feel the love from family and close friends, but my colleagues, social media friends and even a lot of people that I don't know have stepped up to pledge in a big way. I am so grateful!
My goal for RUBY is to create a different kind of online woman's magazine - one that inspires from the inside out and sparks a sense of adventure. But, most importantly, RUBY's mission is to support sisterhood...to build female camaraderie.
I don't want to give too much away about the editorial lineup just yet (spoiler alert: travel will be in there!), but I can tell you this: We'll be looking to hire bright and talented journalists, photographers and videographers. I can't wait to see how it all comes together.
If this is something that excites you, please do check out the Kickstarter and make a pledge if you can. And of course, share it with all of your friends...shout it from the rooftops! There's also a comments section on the Kickstarter page where you can ask questions or leave feedback. I'd love to hear from you.
