Yesterday I had this gut feeling that Temerity Magazine was changing forever. I could not explain it and it has yet to come full circle, but it had been bugging me since I started restructuring my total business and online effort here in 2013. I started the day with a post on Temerity Magazine stating that Temerity Magazine was being restructured and may not look anything like it once was. At the time, I had no clue what would become of the effort. I had even toyed with the idea of totally shutting it down. But late last night or early this morning it came to me.
What came was a solution to a format that would both serve my vision for Temerity Magazine and meet my changing philosophy of my new business strategy and the restructuring of my total online effort.
Temerity Magazine will truly look and feel totally different than before. No longer will it be just free advertising for my fellow relic and treasure hunters efforts, but instead it will embody Temerity and my vision for the effort.
The details are forming as I type here. Inspired by Norman Rockwell, Paul Harvey and some of the best relic and treasure story tellers, Temerity Magazine will no longer be totally dependent upon submissions but rather story suggestions by our viewers and readers. It will consist of a bit more work on my behalf but work I enjoy and can accomplish as I go throughout the relic and treasure hunt and research season. It fits better with what I envision relic and treasure hunting to be and I feel it will inspire many more to join us in the relic and treasure hobby, industry and our shared addiction.
Temerity Magazine has been a really successful venture, and throwing that all away in favor of a format more dependent on my own creativity and labor is quite the gamble. Yet, I feel it is a solid move and a keystone in the direction I am heading.
Temerity Magazine will have one last issue on May 1st announcing the changes and transitioning to its new and improved format. Today, I am beginning the journey and I will be improving upon the strategy change as we go forward. I am so excited that it is hard to sleep with all the great ideas I am trying to get down on paper as the new Temerity Magazine crystallizes in my mind.
May 1st more details will be shared and this new era of Temerity Magazine will begin utilizing all the infrastructure I have worked so hard to put in place. I have a ton of work to do between now and then, so be patient and I feel you will be rewarded.
