My Christmas Gift Guide is out now!

I was really disappointed when ill-health forced me last year to abandon my Merryn magazines. As I was feeling better, I decided in August this year to put together a Christmas gift guide featuring some of my favourite independent UK and Ireland retailers. They certainly didn’t let me down!

You can find the gift guide here.

After all, it is only 12 weeks until Christmas tomorrow!

An announcement

It is with sadness that I have to bring you this news. Because of a family situation, I am having to put the production of Merryn Magazine on hiatus. I am hoping to resume putting the magazine together at the start of 2017, but unfortunately that means that the October and January issues will not be released.

I will still continue to post blog posts on the website but the actual magazine is ceasing production from this point on.

Thank you for your support and patience during this time.

Kind regards,
Jenny

Do you know an unsigned UK artist or band?

One of the things I love to champion is unsigned UK artist and bands. With that in mind, I run a regular feature on the Merryn Magazine website on Mondays called Independent Music Monday where I interview a different singer or band each week. If you know of anyone that I should be featuring, please ask them to take a look at this webpage, as that will give them more information 🙂

All about my magazine

Since the start of the year, I’ve been working solidly on my new magazine Merryn Magazine. The first issue came out on Friday 1st April and the second issue came out on Friday 1st July. People seem to really like it, which I am so relieved at! To say it started as a small hobby, it certainly has grown and people are already asking when issue 3 will be out! Issue 3 will be out on Saturday 1st October and will be the Christmas Gift Guide issue with 100 pages of great gift ideas from UK independent retailers. I can’t wait to get started on it!

My new magazine is now live online!

New cover
I haven’t been this blog much recently as I’ve been working on a digital magazine called Merryn Magazine for the past few months and the big day has finally arrived! It is finally online for everyone to read (and hopefully share).

I originally started the magazine as I noticed that I was following a lot of interesting people on my Twitter accounts, and I realised that if I found them interesting, that other people would do too. So, I decided to put together a magazine to showcase them. While putting it together, I found even more interesting people, so many so that I already have a lot of people for issue 2, which is due out on Friday 1st July!

I really enjoyed putting the magazine together and I’m excited to start on issue 2 in May.

You can see the magazine on a website called Issuu which is a publishing platform for magazines.
