~A Primitive Place Magazine~

Did you all here the good news??? A Primitive Place is becoming a magazine! I was so excited when I heard the news that I quickly ordered my subscription. The first issue come outs in August, 2010. To order your subscription, click here.




I have some more good news to go with the Primitive Place Magazine announcement! When I read about the new magazine, I told Jeff about it. He said, "Contact them and ask them if you can do something." At first, I thought, "No, they can not use me. What do I have to offer?" Then when I woke up the next morning I thought, "The worse thing that can happen is they tell me no." So I sent an e-mail to the Editor, Kristine, expressing interest in helping out in some small way. I was so happy to receive a response. We have been e-mailing back and forth over the last couple of days, Kristine, contacted me today and asked me to write some small articles for the magazine! I really am not sure what they are going to want me to write about, but I am so excited! I couldn't wait to share my news with you all. I have wanted to work for a magazine for a few years, and now I am! I am nervous and excited at the same time. I hope that I will do a good job and they will like what I write. I am so grateful to have this opportunity and I want to do my very best!

I hope your evening has been as exciting as mine and that you are spending some time doing what you love to do!

My Best to You Always,
~Dan~
