Ever since I was little and I made a magazine for the club that my sister and I and some friends started, I've always enjoyed creating or contributing to magazines and newsletters. I wrote a lot for the school magazine when I was in high school and the school paper in college, and I even started a newsletter for the architecture school.
However, when it came to starting a newsletter for my business, truth be told, I hesitated for a while, even after collecting sign-ups.
It wasn't until I learnt that the best newsletters focus on content that is valuable and of interest to readers (and is not a sales pitch) that I thought, "oh, well, I can do that" and we were off to the races!
Now I really enjoy putting my newsletter together every month (and I adore Mad Mimi - they make it really easy to put something together that looks good). I've written about fun ideas for great photo locations, easy, non-technical ways to improve your photography right now (even if you're sleep deprived), and this month's issue includes my five favorite tips that I love to give to new and expectant parents. It's not that I go around spouting advice to random pregnant strangers, but these are the things I want everyone to know!
Future topics I'm really looking forward to include getting the most out of your DSLR, features to include in your dream nursery, and some of my favorite iphone apps to add a little extra touch to your photos. I've also got some cool shower gift ideas to wow your friends with.
