Working With Dote Magazine

Working With Dote Magazine

Dote Magazine

One of the many things I love about blogging are all the amazing opportunities that come from it. But especially when those opportunities are local!

A few months ago, after we had just moved from California back to Canada, an old friend emailed me about a new lifestyle magazine here in Calgary:

“I was reading my first Dote Magazine www.dotemagazine.com and thought of you: you need to be a contributor or columnist. It is very you. Check it out and maybe apply!”

And I did a crazy thing. Something I would normally talk myself out of for fear of rejection…or sheer laziness. I contacted them. To my surprise, I heard back and even had coffee with the publisher and editor. They were truly lovely! We discussed my possible role and their vision for the overall magazine, as well as my contribution. 

So, fast forward to today. I am now a lucky columnist for Dote Magazine. My column will be focused on fixing a design problem that plagues many different types of homes and introduce simple solutions. Mainly, I’ll be doing a lot of fun makeovers and styling a lot of fabulous spaces. Two words. Dream. Job.

Yesterday I got to hang out with a couple Dote ladies, Kate (the publisher) and Blair (their resident photographer)! We worked on my first project, which will be coming out in their 2nd issue! I am SO excited! But unlike the blogging world, you shoot WAY in advance for it to be in print months later. It’s a different world, but it’s a lot of fun to watch and learn this new process. The issue will be coming March 2015 , but I will be sure to share that with you once it’s launched! 

For now, I wanted to share this exciting news with you and to also encourage you to support this new magazine – it will surely captivate you! You can also check out a sneak peek of their 1st issue here

XOXO, Lidy
