If you follow us on social media, you may have seen that Emily and I went on a little editors’ retreat this week. (If you don’t follow us on social media, why not?!? Our links are right down at the bottom of the page. : ) We planned this retreat largely because the two of us live in different states and even though it’s easier than ever to be connected and work remotely, it’s still nice to get some face time when you work with someone. We had a lot of ideas and strategy that we wanted to implement, so we decided to take a couple of days, lock ourselves away in a cabin in the woods, and crunch.
Over the last couple of days, we’ve taken huge leaps. We’re finishing up a complete site redesign, and we’re moving to a new home. Stay tuned next week for the official relaunch, but for now, please bookmark our new site, thebemagazine.com! Don’t worry, though—we will keep this site running for a few more months to remind you of our new location.
In addition to refining our relaunch, we spent a ton of time brainstorming new ways to make our site even better and more interesting for our readers. In the coming months we’ll be introducing a bunch more contributors and topics, which we couldn’t be more excited about. We love having new writers add their voices and perspectives to our site, and we’ve gotten a wonderful group of people together so far. We’re always open to expansion, though, so if you or someone you know is interested in contributing, always feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to chat! And while you’re at it, please let us know if you have any feedback, topics you want more of, or ladies you feel deserve to be profiled here—we want to hear from you!
Emily and I had a great time on retreat in our little cabin, even though we’ve never worked so hard in such a short amount of time in our lives. We’re headed home today, slightly cross-eyed from computer overload, but completely excited for our new direction. We really hope you’ll like it when we introduce it next week. Stay tuned!
Bridget & Emily
