Friends, happy Monday! The internet can be a crazy, vast place for a creative to find a home... and that's why I'm so pleased to have Brooke Saxon-Spencer, the creator of Belong Magazine on the podcast today. Belong Magazine is all about celebrating the art and the community of social media, entrepreneurship and blogging while helping women navigate the web in life-giving ways. I mean... talk about a Godsend! The encouraging and empowering community that Brooke has created with Belong is one of my favorite things this year and I'm so excited to chat with her about the magazine's beginnings, the community she's created and the ins and outs of being an editor of a independently run magazine. Get ready... this one's a goodie!
