Inspire Magazine is an online blog covering anything from fashion and beauty reviews to dating and craft tips. Inspire Magazine was created when at university I was required to produce a one off issue of a magazine created by myself. I set up this blog to help coincide with this and decided to keep it as an online version. Inspire Magazine will hopefully one day be a print magazine, until then it exists as a blog.
Inspire Magazine reaches over 1000 unique page views a day and in November alone the blog acquired over 20,000 views that month. The blog includes posts of a variety of different subjects and is slowly beginning to involve its readers a lot more with discussions on the Facebook page and readers commenting their thoughts on posts.
All reviews I do are completely of my own opinion and usually of my own accord. I am sometimes given discount codes by companies or sent items to review in return for me offering my opinion which is always honest and never biased. As stated before, I am happy to try out new products and offer honest opinions on these if I feel they are in the interest of my readers.
I have a lot of experience within journalism, I studied both Magazine and Fashion Journalism at the University of Sunderland and as you can see from my 'About Me' page, I have also taken part in a lot of one-off guest blogging. At the beginning of 2011 I also took part in a two week internship at More! Magazine which offered me fantastic insight into the world of journalism and magazines.
If any companies would like to get into contact with me regarding any blogging opportunities then I can be contacted on Louise.Joy@hotmail.com. I am an excellent time keeper, writing is my absolute passion and I can be very versatile when it comes to taking my hand at a variety of different writing genres. I love a challenge.
Although I will continue to update this blog in my own personal time, in the long run I would love to see it turned into a print magazine. My other future ambitions include having the chance to write for a women's lifestyle magazine.
