*This post is a paid collaboration with Blogosphere magazine.
Are you a blogger, a content creator, an influencer or a brand? Do you want to feel part of the blogging community? Does learning about the online world and blogging industry excite you? Want to read about those who are making waves in the industry or meet like-minded individuals in the community? If you said yes to any of these questions, then you need Blogosphere magazine in your life.
The blogging Bible (as I like to call it) is the go-to magazine for those who want to be inspired by other content creators or those who want advice on how to build their brands and social channels. The magazine is jam-packed with interviews from people in the industry, a real insight into their lives and journeys. I genuinely feel so inspired after reading an issue or attending an event, sometimes it pushes me to do better and continue my blogging journey when things get tough because I work full-time as well as work on my blog. This is why I’m a subscriber of the magazine.
For just £30 a year, I receive x4 copies a year which is £7.50 per issue. You may think this is a little expensive for a magazine (in comparison to others on the shelf), but there is no other magazine like it out there, it’s 150-164 pages and totally worth it, plus it is delivered straight to your door. As part of the service you’ll be invited to exclusive events and there’s so many opportunities that comes with this magazine, For me, it gave me a platform to share my voice, opinions and promote my blog and social channels. It has also connected me with other bloggers who I can now call friends, but not only this, the magazine genuinely made my dreams come true by featuring me in the magazine (issue 14), over a six page spread.
Commissioning Editor Albertine Sarah contacted me in June last year to ask me if I’d be happy to be interviewed for the magazine. I can’t tell you how overwhelmed I felt to be asked this. I’ve been a huge fan of the magazine since it launched in 2013 by Alice Audley and have always looked up to the bloggers who were featured in the magazine, because the team behind the title highlights the best talent in the industry and still does today. Therefore to be published in the magazine felt like a dream come true and an achievement I never thought would happen, but it did and it proves hard work pays off. It was an honour to be photographed by Lauren Shipley, interviewed by Albertine Sarah, and published in the Blogosphere magazine. This opportunity happened because I attended Blogosphere events like the annual awards, the talks and met the incredible team behind it. Following this interview people followed me online via the magazine and brands got in contact with me to work with them. Needless to say, it may be a print magazine in a digital era, but it still has power.
Not only do they hero the established bloggers in the industry, they champion upcoming talent and put them in the spotlight too. For brands this is a great way to keep up to date on who to watch out for and who’s in the spotlight.
Blogosphere magazine goes beyond print. It’s a whole community with regular online chats, join in the #blogospherechat on Twitter, it’s a great way to connect and talk about different topics. When I found the blogging community online, I feel like I found myself. Connecting with like-minded people is important to me and I love that a magazine is able to connect people in that way. That’s pretty special.
The events will connect you with brands, that could potentially lead into collaborations. They could also offer you opportunities to speak at their events, like I did at the Blogosphere Christmas Festival, watch it here or the opportunity to meet other bloggers.

Statistically magazines are deemed to be dying, but Blogosphere isn’t. It’s growing! I just hope the next step for them is to crack online just as they do in print.
