I’m always excited when the new year rolls around. It brings to mind thoughts of fresh slates, new beginnings, and lots of opportunities.
I’m also thrilled when we bring to you a new issue of All Things Girl.
The theme of this first issue of 2012 is “Jump!”. When we planned the themes for the year, we wanted to bring single word that could be interpreted in a variety of ways. This issue is the beginning of some changes here at ATG. We are moving to a quarterly format in 2012. And, as we move well into our 11th year of publication, I realize that in the internet age, we are ancient.
We began as a Literary / Arts ‘Zine in August 2001, and in honor of that core, you will find both Writings and Arts that show how folks interpret “Jump”. Everything Girl never fails to WOW me, and here you will find inspirational columns and interviews with fabulous folks. Be sure and check out our interview with Cover Girl – the Sexy actress Mekenna Melvin as well as our amazing Man of the Moment, Author Raymond Khoury.
Do take some time to fix yourself a nice cup of tea and enjoy the fabulousness that is Jump. We’ve added nifty “Tweet” and “Like” buttons and comments are open, so do share your thoughts with us – and tell your friends!
Don’t forget to keep an eye on The Blog. You’ll also be treated to some wonderful interviews, reviews, and fabulous guest posts.
We will be accepting submissions for “Jump” until February 5th, so don’t hesitate to share with us how you see it. As always, we are looking to the future and welcoming submissions for upcoming issues in 2012 as well as reviews and guest blogs. We’d love to see what you’ve got!
I hope that you are jumping into 2012 with both feet. Learning from our pasts is critical to moving forward in life, but jumping into a project or the wonderfulness that is your life is better if you take a leap of faith and jump in with both feet.
Much love and light to you.
