Review | Blogosphere Magazine



Hey guys I thought that I would do another review today as you all seem to love them. This one is going to be about the Blogosphere Magazine. If you are a blogger or a YouTuber then you will already probably have heard of it. Blogosphere is a magazine "written for bloggers by bloggers".  There are four magazines released a year and it's for both bloggers and YouTubers which is amazing. 

Each magazine is filled with beauty, fashion, fitness, food & many lifestyle topics. On top of this there are various interviews from many top bloggers/YouTubers as well as smaller ones also. They always include tweets from their #BlogosphereChat which I love as they really include everyone in their magazine. 


The way it works is that you buy a subscription instead of buying the individual magazine. There are five different subscription packages that you can choose from which means that there is one for everyone. I'm going to give you a brief overview of each one. You can find out more here if you are interested in purchasing the magazine.

No matter what subscription you get you are essentially getting two magazines for one. This is because you get the magazine itself and the events magazine also. The main magazine is where you will find the main topics and interviews from the bloggers/YouTubers for that chosen issue. 

On the other hand the events book is all about past events that have taken place as well as upcoming ones. Some examples of ones that are coming up are the Issue 12 cover reveal in March, a coffee morning in April and a pamper evening in May. You can buy tickets for these events on their website here and they are usually really reasonably priced. For example, the Valentines tea party which is happening today is £15 per ticket. 

I would love to go to the pamper evening in May, the Summer party in July and the Christmas market in November. Whether or not I will be going we will see. I recommend keeping an eye out on their Twitter @BlogosphereM where they always keep you up to date on ticket releases etc..


Now let's talk about the magazine itself well I say magazine it's more like a coffee table book it's that well put together. The quality of this magazine is so high the cover is so thick and it really makes a huge difference. Like most magazines it begins with a short note from the editor which I always love reading. 

You then come across the contents page which I usually skip in magazines as it's usually just text. However, this one has images so you can see which topic is on each page. The interviews are a mixture of text and images but the balance is just right. 

There's nothing worse then trying to read a piece of text but there's so much to read. I always prefer reading more but in smaller portions. In each magazine there is always a few main interviews that take up several pages as well as several other mini interviews. 

Not only do they talk about the main topics such as lifestyle, beauty, fashion, fitness and food. The magazine also includes important topics for bloggers such as paying your taxes the right way. 



Now this blog post would be never ending if I spoke about the whole magazine as there is just SO much in it (I'm not kidding). As I said the magazine is split up into topics but there is so much more content as well. Each topic has a number of different bloggers who are top of that particular topic as well as a mini interview. 

My favourite bit is that at the top it has that person's "statistics" as such which includes things such as when they started blogging, monthly views, the camera they use and their social media handles. 

This is such a lovely thing to add as it provides useful information for us all as we can improve our own blogs/channels based upon this information. For example, if I wanted to buy a new camera I can take a look and see what camera is used the most and then make a decision based upon that.

As I said before this magazine is "written by bloggers for bloggers" which brings a whole new meaning. Each piece of text is written by the blogger or YouTuber themselves as in first person. This makes the magazine so much more personal and special. 

Lastly one of the special things that Blogosphere do is something called "in the spotlight" which is when people can enter via Twitter to be interviewed and featured in the magazine. For example, for this issue there were 180 entries and 11 were shortlisted to be picked for the top 3. All you have to do is keep an eye on their Twitter @BlogosphereM for the hashtag #InTheSpotlight and then enter from there.


Overall I am so pleased that I subscribed to this magazine! I cannot wait for the next issue and I have my eye on purchasing some of their previous issues which feature some of my favourite people on the internet you can purchase old magazines here. 

I would love to attend at least one of their events this year as that is one of my things to tick off for 2017 in terms of my blogging/YouTube. I have yet to finish the whole magazine as there is just so much to read. I like to read it when I have a spare half an hour with a cup of tea. 

If you haven't gotten your hands on it then GET IT because it will help you in so many ways. There are hundreds of useful tips in here for any blogger/YouTuber at any stage. It truly is a magazine that you will keep for years and collect as it's just so special. When you own one you will see exactly what I mean. Thank You Blogosphere for giving me the motivation to blog/make videos again!
