It has been a while since I’ve posted. Although I’ve written quite a bit about what’s been going on. I finished and launched my own magazine. It’s called Beautiful Natural Hair and it’s on the Apple Newsstand. The magazine has been live for exactly one month and today I received the first of what I hope are many financial reports. The app made a few dollars this first month out of the box. I had a lot of downloads too. So, now it’s time to actually market the mag in the hopes of increasing circulation.
Oh I guess I should say the magazine is a do it yourself resource for women in the process of returning their hair from a chemically altered state to its original state. That state could be and for African American woman usually is some form of coil, curl, or kink. It looks like this:
I’m really excited about sharing my passion with the world. I’m also excited to be a resource for other women on the journey I embarked almost 20 years ago. It is so empowering to be comfortable in the skin and hair we’ve been gifted with. There is so much more to come even. As an interactive magazine it is filled with video demonstrations, reviews, and tutorials. Additionally, BNH Mag gives voice to the many women literally figuring this natural thing our for themselves. It is always empowering to see other women explore themselves. It is equally empowering to recognize a part of ourselves in each one of them.
BNH Mag is a community and crowd sourced in a way that allows any and everyone with a technique, tip, or general advice a venue to share that information with the rest of us. I look forward to hearing the stories of others and sharing some truths of my own. Reach out to me. I’m here and I certainly care.
