Spread the Magazine!

5 Star Magazine has been running for nearly 5 years, and it’s ready to gain new subscribers!

5 Star Magazine’s loyal subscribers that have subscribed for years (and some from the very first issue!) deserve a recognition. Thank you SO much! 5 Star Magazine wouldn’t exist without you.

I would like to invite new subscribers into the fun world of 5 Star Magazine. I’ve been thinking of some strategies to spread the word. Some include:

1. Posters describing the magazine, and also listing my email and website.

2. Business cards (for handing out).

3. Possibly creating a Facebook page sometime in the future.

Other ideas would be appreciated!!


P.S. Look for the June issue coming soon to your email!

  1. Drink warm tea with honey
  2. Meditate for 10 minutes per day
  3. Do some gentle stretches and yoga
  4. Listen to classical or piano music while working
  5. Take deep breaths when feeling stressed


Let me know how these work for you 🙂

In just a few days, you will be seeing the April issue in full rainbow color 🙂

Now for the big question…What is YOUR favorite color?  Or maybe you don’t have one?  Do you have a least favorite color?  Do you have a reason for your preferences?  Let me know by just commenting below.  I will also comment which color is my favorite.

I can’t wait to see your votes…and check back to see others, too!
