Exclusive Lonny News!!!



You heard it here first ladies and gents—our favorite online shelter mag, Lonny, is available in print!  While in New York last month I had the opportunity to meet with Editor-In-Chief Michelle Adams (the girl is seriously too cute for words…) and see the hard copy.  It is BEAUTIFUL!  Each edition will run between $30 – $40, but at around 200 pages each they look closer to a keepsake design book than your average glossy.  Lucky for us, the current issue will be available to order on Wednesday and the archives will be made available in the next few weeks.  While they will continue to look for cheaper alternatives (and the online edition will continue to be free of course!), I can’t resist splurging on a print collection of my own!

But wait, that’s not it!  Also on Wednesday they’ll be unveiling a more sophisticated and user-friendly design to the website.  Some of the new features include a Lonny blog (daily doses? I die!), more of the darling Lonny Loves profiles (my favorite feature!), and a search function within the magazine (to aid your hunt for the perfect “armoire”).  They’re also making it easier for us to share things we love via email, Facebook and Twitter.  I must apologize in advance to all my girlfriends—I have a feeling they’ll be receiving A LOT of Lonny links in the near future ; )

So tell me, are you as excited as I am??  Feel free to spread the good news!

    I’m glad you ladies are excited too! I think it’s fantastic they really listened to all the readers that asked for it in print. My jaw dropped when I saw the hard copy on Michelle’s desk—it’s seriously GORGEOUS!

    Prippy — I know what you mean and the best part is that Lonny won’t just be your typical print magazine. It’s so large and so beautifully printed that it seriously felt like a coffee table book when I picked it up! It will be the finest of print! : )

    Vivian — I’m glad you’re excited! I know it’s a splurge, but when you see how huge one single issue is you’ll know it’s so worth it! Plus they’re still working on lowering the price point…only good things to come!

    Such a good news and so pleased you were able to break the news–Lonny couldn’t have picked a better choice!

    I love, love Lonny! Would request that you make it available in a format that can be read on an iPad, please! It is frustrating that I can only read it at home on my PC. Great work!

    So, So, So Excited!

    I saw copies and they look AMAZING. More like a soft-covered book… totally worth the splurge… looks way better than a traditional mag and worth keeping forever!

    I heard they are printing through MagCloud… perhaps they will opt into the MagCloud iPad app?!?

    Don’t care how much the print copy costs! I will buy every one … I am in heaven. When you think about it, the content in each issue is probably five times what you get in a normal magazine without all the ads. And the content is beyond fabulous. Thanks for giving us the option, Lonny.

    This is GREATGREATGREAT news.

    Do they ship to Switzerland? Tell me they do or I’ll have to cry instantly and eat at least thre pints of ice cream (which will make me fat and then it’s all your fault ;P)!

    This is too exciting! I think I am also going to have to splurge on my own print copy of Lonny! I can’t wait to see all of these new features on their website. Thank you for the update!
