Guess What Came In the Mail?
I have been waiting, rather impatiently I might add, for a certain item in the mail – a magazine with my published article!
And, I am happy to say that it arrived a couple of days ago….
Here it is!
Although, I have written articles for magazines before – but this is the first one that I wrote for a national magazine.
Last year, I was asked by the editor of Birds & Blooms magazine to write two articles for their magazine this year. (I do write twice a week for their blog).
This is the first article, which is about ‘companion gardening’.
I practice ‘companion gardening’ in my own garden and have written smaller articles about it, including posts on this blog.
But, I did do some additional research for this article and was pleasantly surprised to find out more combinations and practices that use combining certain plants together that benefit each other.
I wrote this article from a hotel room back in March, while we were temporarily evacuated from our house when it flooded.
The next article is due out next month and is about ‘drought-tolerant’ gardening.
**Birds & Blooms is a Reader’s Digest publication. I have found it at my local Kroger’s grocery store as well at Barnes & Noble.
Of course, you can always subscribe to it. It has lots of great gardening ideas and DIY projects.
**If you would like to order an individual issue, you can get one here 🙂
What a thrill to hold the issue in your hands, with your article in it. I write for magazines too and it is exciting when the issue arrives in the mail.
I love your two topics. That is a beautiful magazine.
Noelle…I just picked the magazine up. I'll have to check it out tonight.
Congratulations on your published articles. I have no doubt they will be beneficial and informative to all the readers. Well done.
Congrats! It looks beautiful. I can't wait to read it!
Thank you so much!
Balisha – I hope you like it 🙂
Terra – What magazines do you write for?
Congratulations to you! What a wonderful article. I will have to check it out!
Congratulations, and wishing you many more national publications. Great Job! 🙂
Yay, Noelle! That is awesome. So proud of you.
That is awesome. I love it…
