For a little while now, I’ve been writing for a site called Visit From The Stork, a website aimed at young parents.
When Kimberley, the editor and founder, told me she was launching a magazine, I was really excited to be involved! So far there have been two editions posted online, but the third version is a real life paper copy!
To celebrate, Visit From the Stork held a launch party. I was gutted to be unable to go; it seems to have been a great event.
Lots of people were at this event: Michele from Bizmums, some charities, and lots of people who own their own creative businesses.
So Visit From the Stork is now a fully-fledged magazine; it’s so exciting to be involved in something so innovative. I know when I had S I felt completely lost at sea – and that was with the benefit of life experience up to age 30. Young mums today face a lot of tough choices (not to mention judgement) and it’s lovely to see something aimed directly at them, that doesn’t talk down to them.
Kimberley is not one to rest on her laurels though; she has already launched an Etsy shop selling a range of greetings cards and necklaces, which you can check out here.
