Molly Green Magazine

I'm pleased to report that the Fall issue of Molly Green Magazine is now available! The magazine is being relaunched in a gloriously colorful e-format, and yours truly is now writing for it.

For those unfamiliar with Molly Green, it's a publication that celebrates Home. It focuses on homesteading, homekeeping, homeschooling, and home industry. Can you see why I'm interested?

Because the editors are still in the process of tweaking the new Molly Green website, the Sept/Oct 2014 issue is available for free as a pdf until the end of September. Go to this link and fill in the necessary information, then download.

To be perfectly honest, I had no idea what to expect when they asked me to write for them. I just knew I liked the premise. But when I saw the first issue... WOW. My eyeballs about hit the floor. Holy cow, it's fantastic. Beautiful graphics, meaty articles, excellent layout. I couldn't be more pleased to be writing for them.

So go download that issue and let them know what you think!


  1. I never "give out information" so I will have to forgo the invitation. Don't misunderstand, I accept this companies right or need to have that information before they share their publication. That;s their business model and more power to them. But like Costco that requires membership they will have to get by without my participation. I assume like most magazines and for that matter most blogs they make their money from the advertising. So the limiting of customers is not easy to understand. I'm sure someone smarter then me has calculated out the difference between fewer customers but having the data to sell on the customers that they do have and determined that they are better off selling the customer database. I do have an MBA but perhaps I was out that day they discussed selling customer data.

    anonymous and happy to be so

    1. I am the Senior Editor of Molly Green and I'm pleased to let you know that we do not sell or rent our customers' information. We make part of our money through advertising, but most of it through memberships. If someone gets on our email list and wants off, they can easily opt out. We do occasionally allow other companies with products that our readers might be interested in to provide us content to send to our members, but WE send it to our list. We do not give the list to any other company. We could indeed make a lot more money by selling or renting out our lists, but we don't appreciate it when people do that to us, so we don't do it to our members either. Best regards, Dara Ekanger

  2. "and the tractor runs on rainbows." I like that!

    Thanks for the free magazine offer.
