Making More Connections in May

by Michele Pesula Kuegler on May 4th, 2015

May-Highlights_2015Almost every month I make tweaks to the editorial calendar. Sometimes it is something small, such as creating a new subcategory. Other times it is a realignment of publications and sections, which is a major task. Of course, other changes fall somewhere in between.

In April I mentioned that we had reorganized the categories on Good Life Review, our travel publication. Along with that change, we updated the calendar on the two other publications in that section. These changes provide more continuity between the three publications and allow our readers to have a smoother transition, reading from one publication to the next.

On Parched No More:

  • We eliminated our spirit and wine reviews.
  • We added a well-stocked bar column, which may include spirit reviews but also highlights other noteworthy home-bartending topics, such as bar decor, bar tools, and helpful bartending hints.
  • We added two new wine columns. Destination winery details wineries that are located near our Good Life Review destination of the month. If you’re visiting a certain locale, you now know where to find an interesting winery nearby. The other wine article is regional wines, which will introduce our readers to wines from the general region of the GLR destination.

On Think Tasty:

  • We eliminated our cooking basics column.
  • We added a restaurant destination column. Each month we will find a restaurant in the Good Life Review destination for each of our travel themes. Thus, there will be a girls’ trip restaurant, budget restaurant, family restaurant, and romantic restaurant. If you’re traveling in one of those modes, we’ll have a place to suggest.

These changes, while on the smaller side, hopefully make a big impact with our readers. We want our Fine Living section to be your destination for all things food, beverage, and travel related.
