So the way that I discovered this magazine is kinda an odd one. I recieved notification that an image of mine was being used in a blog post on the Betty Magazine site, and tweeted that perhaps they should have asked before using the image (because honestly, I don’t care if people use most of my images, I just want to know what you’re doing with them!) The editor emailed me to apologise, and offered to send me a copy of the magazine.
Betty Magazine describes themselves as
[a] magazine that is dedicated to sharing with you, things that we like. You won’t find any weight loss or diet tips here, we don’t play on people’s insecurities: our philosophy is for people to embrace who they are and celebrate it.
It’s a refreshing change to the usual trashy magazines that are unfortunatly the main choices in your local newsagent – I would love to see this magazine (and more like it!) on the shelves in the local Co-Op. I know I’m not the only one out there that would prefer to see a recipe in a magazine rather than “lolz, look at this chubby celebs thighs” or an interesting article that makes you think instead of yet another attempt at getting bloggers to provide content and advertising for free.
