A couple of months ago, I was approached by the editor of Handyman Magazine to write two feature articles for the September 2018 issue. The features were to be all about bathroom renovations.
I was so excited to be asked… and then I got nervous because I’d never written for a magazine before. I’d been interviewed for articles before, but never had I been the one to write an article. I said yes before I told myself I couldn’t write it and went head first into getting the first article written. Before I knew it another article was given to me with the same deadline and I eagerly went ahead and wrote what I knew with help from businesses that do bathroom renovations on a regular basis. It was a joy to converse, collate and submit imagery from industry experts.
My experience certainly helped write the articles, but there were amazing insights and conversations with those working in the industry which allowed me to submit the articles.
The magazine went on sale on the 23rd August and I went to Bunnings TWICE to get some copies. I was told I was too early.
Thankfully my local newsagent had two copies available for purchase yesterday (third time lucky!). Bunnings will have the September issue available for sale this week.
Special thanks has to be given to
Indigo Jungle Interior Styling who designed the feature image.
And Zoe and the team at Handyman Magazine who gave me this opportunity and edited my work. Thank you.
The girls were super excited to see my words in the magazine. Jacob has taken a copy to work.
If you want to read my articles and my DIY on how to apply silicone, the September issue of Handyman Magazine is on sale now and is available at selected newsagents and all Bunnings stores. A subscription might make a lovely Father’s Day gift too.
I’m grinning ear to ear at having ticked something I’ve always wanted to do off my bucket list. And I can now finally announce what I’ve had to keep tight lipped until the magazine was available. I hope you enjoy the issue and it helps with your bathroom renovation planning.
