Leaf Magazine Launch Day

It’s finally here.  I feel like a new mother with a scheduled c-section planned for later this afternoon.  It’s been many months and now I just gotta get this thing out…but what about tomorrow — what will that be like?

It’s 5:15 am (I’ve been up since 4:30) I am trying to quell my simultaneous fear and excitement with coffee.  No matter what happens afterwards, it’s going to be a big day, today.

Leaf magazine premiere cover Autumn 2011

So here is how it’s going to go down — I hope you can join me along the way –

1) I need to go finish about 50 little things on the magazine and other details of launching a website and a PR campaign all at the same time.

2) At about 3:00pm today we should be all done and ready to go — that’s when you all come in.  Stop by the leaf mag website, have a first look at the magazine.

3) At 6:00 join us on twitter (@leafmag) to tell us what you think and help us celebrate.

4) You go curl up with the magazine and really enjoy it.

5) Tomorrow, come back here and we will start to chat just like we used too before the magazine took over — I plan to take off at least one week before working on issue # 2 to get things a little back to normal. ;)

  1. It’s going to be brilliant! I am just finishing a blog post to tell my readers. Wishing you both success. I have always enjoyed your blog and the Daily Basics prompted me this morning to have another visit.
    Best wishes for the new magazine.

  2. I just browsed through the magazine and it is fantastic! Love the pictures and topics covered. I’ve always been hestitant to read the electronic format of magazines, as I have enjoyed holding onto a paper copy, but your format was easy to read and navigate, the only problem is I can’t read it in the bathtub!
    Congrats on the magazine.

  3. Fantastic concept for a quarterly or bimonthly mag. It’s reminiscent of the magazines published by the airlines: A little bit of everything; With luscious photography.

Garden Destinations: Tovrea Castle & Carraro Cactus Garden
