Last week I took the (free!) "How to Pitch to a Magazine" class from Alt Summit which was sponsored by Better Homes and Gardens and presented by a couple of lovely ladies who work for that publication. Learning first-hand about how a national commercial magazine operates and prefers to work with bloggers is absolutely priceless.
Here's what I took away from the class.
The quote on the far left is my favorite. It is from one of my "classmates"- she summed it up well by saying, "They are telling us, 'Have a "thing" and tell us what it is.'" In magazines, as in life, no one can complement your talent until you have the courage to showcase it.

Oh and I must not forget: The amazing Leslie Fandrich was my inspiration for this illustrated recap. Go check this wonderful woman out!!
