Today's Launch of the New Online Community NewMoonGirls.com

I am thrilled to share some very exciting news today. This morning, we launched http://www.newmoongirls.com/ our new online community for girls ages 8-12. After fifteen years of encouraging girls to be writers and editors at New Moon Girls magazine, we’re delighted to provide girls with a second forum, this one online, where they can create content, explore the community and support one another.

As we celebrated the launch this morning, it brought back memories of the beginning of New Moon, when I was eager to create a magazine that would give my twelve-year-old twin daughters the opportunity to express and feel great about themselves. From the beginning, our entire purpose for being has been to help girls reach their full potential by challenging them to create, explore, and connect with each other.

Today, for the first time, we’re truly able to reach every girl around the world and provide a safe, secure place for her to grow.

It is with heartfelt thanks for fifteen wonderful years that I say to every New Moon Girl, and New Moon parent, past and present – come join us online, too! click below for a short video tour of the site so you can see how it works. And please let me know what you think!

This looks like an interesting site. I found your online magazine site through a link from a yahoo group. I am disappointed that there isn't a little more of the site accessible for free, or some other way to get levels of involvement as $29.95/year is beyond our budget. I don't spend that much on a single subscription for myself. Other magazine sites I participate in have more available free while having premium areas for the subscribers.
I understand the need to have young girls protected from too much free access, but other measures could be put into place for that.
