June seems to be a month of celebrations. Graduations from preschool through high school. Weddings. End of the school year. The official start of summer. Yes, June is a month for cookouts, parties, and get-togethers. With long days and warm temperatures, the month simply lends itself to being a time of merriment.
In our family, we have a number of celebrations this month. Our youngest nephew graduates from pre-kindergarten; our youngest child graduates from elementary school; our second youngest child graduates from middle school. Of course, we also will celebrate Father’s Day, and the kids will rejoice in the start of summer. (No homework!) Add to that a family reunion at the end of the month, and we personally have many special occasions to enjoy.
At WMG, we also have reason to celebrate, as we have new features launching this month.
- Featured Artist of the Month- At Tunes News, our music publication, we will highlight one band or artist each month. During the month, John Frazzetta will take a closer look at this artist, sharing concert reviews, album reviews, or general thoughts on a weekly basis. We will start this new article series by featuring the Beastie Boys.
- How-To Videos- Our home remodeling/renovating publication, ‘Bout Home, offers many great articles with hints, tips, and directions for home projects. However, the editorial team thought we needed to offer more to our readers. Thus, this week we begin publishing a how-to video each week. Covering everything from how to hang wallpaper to how to replace a shower faucet and everything in between, we hope to provide more of the content that our readers want.
- New Look for Books- As always, we are redesigning and updating our sites. One of our newest redesigns is ‘Bout Books. In addition to a new look we have added a new feature, Topic of the Month. You will find editors’ picks for this category, as well as weekly reviews of books in this topic. We begin with a personal favorite of mine, cooking.
Whatever June holds in store for you, I hope there is a reason and a time to celebrate.
