Editor’s Letter: Celebrating Love and Survival

Dear Readers,

For the last two months our content has been heavily focused on violence. From neglect to physical and other emotional abuses, the pieces published beginning in December have run the gamut. The response has been brilliant, our readership continues to grow, and larger platforms are teaming up with us to share writing which promises to be rewarding.

Behind the scenes has also brimmed with heavy excitement. As a magazine, we are growing financially thanks to Raymond’s insistence on following every rainbow. His podcasts are catching on, sponsored content is coming in keyed to this site’s topics, and our team is hard at work with the goal of being able to pay artists a guaranteed rate per piece rather than opt-in. We are getting there, and we couldn’t be prouder of our team journey.

Looking forward: February is traditionally a love-focused month. We will not be breaking with tradition, but we will have a TRB spin on the work you’ll find here. No part of the relationship is to be ignored, including a fitness relationships column debuting this month (by me). And on that note, we are still looking for a just right food blogger fit. Is this you? Please email [email protected]

Stay tuned as we welcome new voices, launch even more columns and continue our upward streak.

Oh, one more thing. Will you be our Valentine?

With love,

Shawna Ayoub Ainslie
