Oh my! This issue is bitter sweet for me. This little journey I started almost two years ago has been AMAZING. I mean, truly fabulous. I started this magazine as a little hobby, and it grew more than I could have ever imagined. Not too long after starting it, I decided to take my business full-time, and it has also blossomed more than I could have envisioned. While I have worked hard to maintain both, it has become quite clear that I cannot keep up at the level in which I was, and I’ve had to make some changes and decisions to help maintain my business.
Unfortunately, the decision I’ve made is discontinue the magazine as you know it: the articles, advertisements, blogging collaborations and more; and this will be our last issue...for now. We have been so blessed to work with such amazing bloggers and writers. Professionals and friends who are willing to contribute their fantastic thoughts and ideas over and over again.
On the flip side, we will still be keeping ‘Twila,’ but transforming it into more of a Look Book. Meaning, that the photos and photoshoots will be staying, giving Twila & Co. an opportunity to work with more people within our industries on photoshoots and allow our look books to be featured and embedded on many different sites instead of just within our site as part of the magazine.
This decision was a lot of sleepless nights, and a lot of back and forth, but ultimately made the decision that was on my heart. This doesn’t mean the magazine is gone forever, it just means that for right now it needs to take a back seat as I need to focus on continuing to grow other aspects of my life and business.
We will still be working with all of our amazing contributors for photoshoots as well as bringing you more blogs on a regular basis. I hope you’ll continue to follow us on Facebook and Instagram and let us know how you’re doing. We love to hear from our readers. I couldn’t thank everyone enough: my family, friends, contributors, readers...you have all played a tremendous part in making this magazine what it is. We have reached more people than I could have ever imagined. I am so lucky!
Love you all!
