Testimonial Tuesday: The Good Life (A Magazine)

"Live life to the fullest, and focus on the positive."
- Matt Cameron

In this day and age of diminishing readership for print media, Wenatchee's monthly local magazine, The Good Life, is thriving. 

I always enjoy reading this magazine and looking at the pictures because they focus on the positive things local people are doing.  I was planning to write some words about the premise of The Good Life magazine, but their website says it so well. Why should I try to say it better?

"The Good Life magazine is a monthly lifestyle print publication primarily circulating in Wenatchee and the Chelan and Douglas counties area of Washington founded upon the idea the world is a big, beautiful place — we like to find people who are stepping off the usual path in one way or another to find adventure in their lives.

One of our guidelines is that we only report on local people — folks from Chelan and Douglas counties. Our idea is this: other media can go all around the world and come back with stories on war, famine, earthquakes, crime and the like.

We go right down the street and find our neighbors who are doing something extraordinary that maybe, might inspire you to take your own adventure. The variety of our stories never ceases to surprise us: People have shared their adventures of going to some of the most inhospitable places on earth — such as north of the Arctic Circle — to the most hospitable — such as floating down the canals in the French countryside.

Most of our stories, though, take part locally, in the most beautiful area of Washington State, as readers and contributors find adventure close to home. We love the “chapter two” stories where people show us how they have rebounded one of life’s bruises to find new joy in living." 

There is a lot of good to report about the people and places in the Wenatchee Valley and I always look forward to getting my copy of The Good Life.

Hi Wayne Martin ,
I think a neighborhood app is great.  I know some used to have a neighborhood website.  I guess the app just goes one step further into the digital age.

In my mind, magazines suffer when they are 75% ads for things, I hate ads, haha.  Also, I am not much of a reader, so great pictures usually catch my eye.  Arizona Highways is a magazine that I enjoy!
