GoodLiving® magazine, now in its sixth year, is a website and publishing company with a purpose to inform, inspire, encourage and celebrate healthy and happy living in the Tampa Bay area. To us, that means living an involved, meaningful and intentional life with healthy bodies, healthy famlies, healthy homes, healthy spirits, healthy communities and a healthy planet.
The overall purpose is to be a positive, values-based influence in the community. GoodLivingMagazine.com is our online magazine. Our first print publication, now called GoodLiving’s Guide to Happy Healthy Kids celebrates family life in Pinellas County, Florida. We include news from local non-profits, agencies and businesses to either draw attention to a local need, raise awareness for an important issue or shine a light on something positive happening in our community. Our second publication is a specialty magazine for parents of children from birth to five in the greater Tampa Bay area. GoodLiving’s Guide to Babies prints twice a year.
Bottom line. Readers love our magazines. And today, that’s a BIG deal!
We have heard people say that “print is dead” but we don’t believe that at all. In an era of impersonal and dishonest information on the Internet, people are yearning for something tangible that adds value to their lives. A well-done print magazine can do that and we are living proof.
Something else we believe is that there is no better source of true, honest-to-goodness GOOD news than the good people, good organizations and good companies that comprise this awesome community. We have much to be proud of and thankful for, but the voices that share this news often can’t be heard under the dull roar of negativity and bad news that permeates most of our media. We are here to give those voices a place to shout.
Our readers, like us, want the good things. We want to enjoy better physical, mental and emotional health and well being for ourselves and our loved ones. We want to take care of our families, our homes and our environment. We want deeper and more meaningful relationships and experiences. We want our lives to matter and have purpose. We want to be happy, but beyond that we want to live with a sense of joy and fulfillment of our calling.
GoodLiving® Magazine brings all that together with our editorial. Our advertisers also want these things for themselves, their customers or clients, and the community as a whole. Together, we love Tampa Bay. We live here. We raise our families here. We work and play here. And so we feel tremendously blessed to have a magazine and website that bring positive things together for the greater good. We couldn’t have picked a better name than GoodLiving®.
