It’s been just over two months since our latest issue published, and we have been overwhelmed by the response to it! We’ve loved hearing from you directly, as well as via your lovely pictures shared on social media using the #my91magazine hashtag. I must confess, with 91 being my baby, I do enjoy a little scroll of the gallery when I need a little boost and a reminder of why myself, my team and our contributors put so much work into creating the magazine; it’s so rewarding to see our readers enjoying it, either with a nice afternoon cuppa, somewhere exotic on holiday or snuggled up in bed on a Sunday morning.
So here are just a few of our faves from the hashtag, although there are so many more! Lots of you have said that this is your favourite issue ever (thank you!) so if there are any of you that have been wondering whether it’s worth the £7, do pop over to the hashtag gallery and see what our readers are saying about it.
As an indie mag, each and every sale, comment, photo and recommendation from our readers means SO SO much to us. I do hope that we can continue to craft a publication that compels you to share your enjoyment of it with others. We certainly aren’t on every newsstand from here to Timbuktu, so sharing the love is one of the best ways we hope new readers might come across us.
I never started this magazine because I thought it was my route to making my millions (it will never be that!), I started it as I have a passion for beautiful publications, a passion for gorgeous photography and a passion for inspiring people and spaces. I really do hope that with your continued support we can make many more issues of 91 for you to collect and cherish, so please do tell your mum/colleague/hairdresser/postman about us, share your gorgeous photos and if you really love it, shout it from the rooftops! Not many indie magazines last their first year, we have been publishing for seven (in print for two) – we are super proud of that, and fingers crossed we can keep going for at least another seven years!
We feel such a connection with our readership, social media helps of course, but also we feel you ‘get’ us, and we hope you think we ‘get’ you. So, lets keep in touch, continue to let us know your thoughts and continue to show and tell where, how and why you love reading 91. It really does mean the world.
