This winter issue of healthy living now magazine should grace distribution locations with little more than a month to go in 2017. It’s a great time to celebrate the year gone by, and to anticipate the year ahead!
Over the years, this publication has rebranded and streamlined. With it, we captured an audience that engaged with us each issue, and our contributor roster overflowed with local and national experts in their field.
For me, this past year felt like we were at a plateau. A smooth-sailing, financially-sound print publication with loyal advertisers - the backbone of any publication - with readers telling us that we crafted a beautifully-designed publication evoking excitement with each issue. Now is the perfect time to invest in our strengths.
After much consideration, we will be launching a sophisticated digital platform in 2018 with an increased social media presence. This winter edition will be our last printed issue.
If passion, fuelled by knowledge, is the heart of a great magazine, we know that our loyal readers will follow us by reading online at healthylivingnow.ca. We are choosing to move in this direction so we can continually strive to deliver relevant, timely, more frequent local and national health and wellness content.
For just over a decade, healthy living now has been independently owned. Our core mission was constant: connect local readers with local contributors who offer services in all aspects of living a healthy life, while featuring national and renowned contributors such as David Suzuki, Carson Arthur and Natasha Turner to complement.
We reach the end of our last printed publication with mixed feelings, but also a great deal of pride. Of course, none of this would have been possible without the people who were involved with the magazine, in particular past Publisher Amy Turcotte-Doyle and team who founded the publication.
Since taking on the magazine in 2013 as Publisher and Editor, I’ve loved every moment of the past five years, and twenty issues. It’s been a great run. I’d like to thank all of our contributors (who are all joining us on our digital platform) staff, and the teams who worked on the Healthy Living EXPO.
Lastly, thank you to our readers who enabled us to produce thousands of articles touching on all aspects of healthy living within the local environment.
We look forward to having the opportunity to grow our brand, offering you more frequent, relevant and timely content in the years ahead.
We will see you at our online launch in February 2018!
In the meantime, we encourage you to participate in our digital launch contest and sign up for our digital newsletter to be notified of the official launch date.
