New Big Sky Spotlight highlights somebody (from MT) you should know
We started debuted a “department” in the first issue of 2014 called Big Sky Spotlight.
We have several departments, or standard story formats, that appear in most issues and we thought, why not add on featuring a Montanan you should know?
The idea is to give readers a quick look at a Montanan making a difference, creating beautiful art or just living the Montana Life.
And, we thought, we not let them answer a few questions for us while we’re at it?
Our inaugural Big Sky Spotlight featured Becky Hillier, a Miles City native who worked tirelessly for the past several years with a dedicated group of people to help hundreds of Montana WWII veterans take the trip of a lifetime to Washington, D.C.
We think it’s a great way to get to know our neighbors and Big Sky Spotlight is one of the few full features we’ll post at MontanaMagazine.com.
And with that, we’re already working on our second issue of 2014, which of course will feature a BSS. Spoiler alert: In March/April we’ll feature Billings area artists Clark Schriebies.
Introducing the new MontanaMagazine.com
Check it out! Our new website went live Wednesday. We created a new template (featuring our favorite buffalo from the cover of the Nov/Dec issue), new look and added a bunch of new features we’ll flush out as we continue working to make it a place all about Montana.
You’ll find the popular Reader Submitted Photos section (under the “MT Journal” tab) and a preview of all the feature stories from our Nov/Dec issue.
You can take a look at our content (and a bunch of online extras we’ve got in the works) and get a feel for the magazine. Learn more about Montana or more about the team that makes the magazine happen.
I’m most excited about the MT Journal blog – where we’ll feature content and online extras for you to enjoy during gaps between print issues.
Several sections remain under construction. Most notable perhaps is the subscription portion.
We’re working on the back end to get the online subscription forms up and running. It will be soon. In the meantime, give us a call or email us to get your subscription started.
We’ve got a lot more planned for our new site – a great resource for all our fans in this digital age.
