A little help.....pretty please!

My final semester of grad school is underway. I'm already freaking out about presenting my final project. The fact that the presentation is more than two months away, hasn't calmed my nerves at all. I like my idea, a digital-only food magazine for teens, but all of the research and execution is daunting. Which is why I have come to you in book blog land for help!

Before I can think about finances, marketing, and design, I have to think about my audience. Who would want to buy my magazine? Is there a secondary market for my magazine? Very important questions.

If you're between the ages of 12-17, I have a survey for you! But, please get parental permission before taking it. If you're the parent of kids ages 12-17, I have a survey for you! If you're the part of younger kids, I still want you to take the survey. Both surveys are quick and easy, I promise! The info collected is purely for academic purposes. If you take the survey ....... there's a prize for you!

One lucky kid and one lucky parent will win a $25 Amazon gift card! If you're under the age of 18, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE get parental permission before taking part. Both surveys are open until next Monday (2/16/15).

Here are the links for the surveys:


I appreciate everyone who comes by my blog. I promise once school is over, I will be posting more often. Happy reading!


  1. Hi! I'm not within your target subject. But personally, I liked the idea of a food magazine, especially now that people tend to go on a "healthy" lifestyle, eating organic, going vegan, etc. And since food is very important, I believe that your audience will be wider than the teen age group. :)

    Good luck! I wish you all the best! :)

  2. I hope I have secondary market! A lot of the "teen" magazines reach more than just their primary audience. Survey taking is tough!

  3. I'm almost at my goal! I need 20 more people! I'm extending the deadline to Sunday 2/22. Thanks so much for everyone for your help.
