Natural Awakenings Launches New Website




Natural Awakenings has launched a new website supporting the monthly print publication of Chicago North and North Shore. Local magazine articles, news briefs, advertising, resource guides and calendars are now just a click away. The Natural Awakenings national editorial library is also available throughout the site, offering classic interviews and timeless articles.

Sharon Bruckman, founder and CEO of the Natural Awakenings franchised network of 80 magazines, says, “We are happy to reach a whole new audience of readers this way and to give a special group of advertisers such a strong entry onto the Internet. Working with Project Manager Bill Van Arsdale and Publisher Peggy Malecki, we have created a site that we hope will connect the eco-conscious, holistic community in practical and helpful new ways.”

Malecki notes, “My favorite part is the opportunity for our area’s healthy living businesses to tell their story. We want to share with our readers the personalities and interesting details behind these businesses and keep their stories on the site as a kind of mosaic of our community.”

Natural Awakenings’ popular local print calendar and Community Resource Guide are now searchable by topic, date or keyword. “They are dynamic and allow for much more information, including photos, web links, videos and maps,” says Malecki. “Calendar events can now be submitted online for both our print and online calendars. We also offer free, non-commercial classifieds, hoping that this will become a central gathering point for members of our community to share resources and needs.

“During the next few months, we will add coupons, contests, blogs and a web store. You can enter now to win a weeklong retreat with wild dolphins in the Bahamas, courtesy of WildQuest; just go to our website, at NAChicagoNorth.com,” advises Malecki.

“Our mission is to provide practical and exciting information that readers, businesses and customers find of ongoing usefulness in their daily lives.”
