It is great to see a website publisher doing well and especially when they are attempting to branch out in a new direction beyond travel blogging. Nellie Huang has just released the first edition of her new online publication ‘Wildjunket Magazine’.
After getting a sneak preview I managed to persuade her to allow me a more in depth viewing. My initial impressions are that Nellie has collected articles from a great group of contributors in one publication. The writing is engaging and of high quality whilst the photography is outstanding.
The formula is a quite familiar starting, with a series of photographs, several travel features including Oman, Namibia the Arctic and Macedonia which are all informative with images bound to inspire. The travel advice and tips accompanying each feature will be prove useful for the inspired.
I particularly found the advice on building and living in an igloo interesting, having built a few in the past it brought back some great memories and the tips were accurate.
There are useful lists recommending trips for particular interest group and events throughout February and March. Equipment reviews allow for some informed retail therapy and a chance to win some of the items reviewed.
Those who enjoy competitions are catered for with an opportunity to win a trip sponsored courtesy of adventure travel specialists G Adventures.
It is extremely good value at only $2.95 for a single issue download and $14.95 for a subscription. This is a competitive product in comparison to existing print and online travel related magazines. I recommend downloading it to PDF however to ensure a permanent copy and for ease of access.
The quality of this first issue is excellent; impressions are of a professional production. Nellie, her contributors and production team have obviously spent a great deal of time and effort putting together a first class magazine.
‘Wildjunket’ magazine is well worth taking a look at, there is plenty to inspire and allow the armchair traveller to enjoy vicarious travel. Only time will tell if this is a logical step for travel bloggers but it is an exciting one and I wish Nellie the best of luck in her brave endeavour. If the following editions retain this level of quality it deserves to be a success.
