My favorite spot to sit and think is on a screened-in porch overlooking the neighborhood lake I live on. I have a favorite chair where I can sit for hours, watching the wildlife, reading a book, or planning a magazine issue. It’s taken too long this year for the weather to turn warm enough to make the porch inviting, but the wait makes the spot even sweeter.
Also long anticipated—and perhaps better because of the wait—is the launch of our new website, which makes its debut on May 1. Having come from a web development background, I knew Natural Awakenings could and should have a strong online presence. The new and much improved NaturalAwakeningsNJ.com will contain all the content you’ve come to love from our print magazine: feature articles, local news, community profiles, and calendar events. We’re also developing some online-only content, including a local resource directory where you’ll be able to search for practitioners, retailers, instructors, restaurants, and more.
The site will also give us greater opportunity to connect with each other. Without the constraints of print, we will have room for bloggers, videos, classified ads, and who knows…as technology progresses, we can continue to improve and expand the site.
I hope NaturalAwakeningsNJ.com will become a favorite spot for you to read, think, and plan. I hope you’ll spend some time getting to know the site and catching up on articles you may have missed. And because it will be updated frequently, come back often. We welcome suggestions for improvement , article ideas, and submissions.
Not to worry; the print publication isn’t going away. The addition of an online option will serve to strengthen the whole. So, enjoy this issue on Women’s Wellness and pass it around to all the important women in your life.
