Issue 19 (ebook)
Alfie Deyes has always intrigued me. As I mention in the cover interview, over the years his name always seems to crop up in interviews with other influencers. He’s the one they watch. The one they praise. The one they describe as the entrepreneur of the influencer industry.
With the launch of our podcast – Blogosphere: Serious Influence (*shamelessly plugs*) – which focuses on the business side of the industry, I have become even more interested in the mechanics of the financial side of this world.
The interview with Alfie fell after I’d started recording the podcast, and also neatly after Alfie had decided to re-brand (less tween idol, more entrepreneurial creator). The result meant that we got a very business focused interview (p32). I hope that you find it useful – and an enjoyable read. Also shout out to Kyle Galvin for his first cover! The images are amazing!
This issue, we also speak to Canadian YouTube sensation Elle Mills. The 20 year old, who is no stranger to going viral (she legally married her sister’s boyfriend for a video), discusses the toll that fame has had on her mental health, the importance of good management and her plans for the future (p7).
We have interviews with Sammi Jefcoate, who discusses sustainable fashion and motherhood (p74) and Nerd About Town, who opens up about Twitter trolls and the importance of diverse decision makers (p147). Our ‘in conversation with…’ features Sara Tasker (Me and Orla) and Jen Carrington, who discuss podcasting, audience interaction and the importance of diversifying your income (p58).
Features include a look into the rise of AI influencers and what this could mean for the industry (p100), the positives to being an anonymous blogger (p154), and how algorithms are having a negative impact on diversity (p54).
Looking for some tips? On page 86 we take a look at the new resource for ASA guidelines, we explore best practice when launching your own podcast on page 158, and PetiteElliee gives us some advice on finding Instagrammable locations on page 112.
I hope that you enjoy the issue and I’ll see you back here in spring…

I just wanted to say thank you for such a fantastic evening. It was such a great night, and so well organised! The food was delicious, the hosts were brilliant, and the atmosphere was electric. It was the best-organised award show I have attended, and ran a lot more seamlessly than most. The performer, El Sam, and the sponsors were also superb!
I don’t even buy magazines anymore but a subscription to Blogosphere is a must. Packed full of useful info and with new blogs to discover, you’d be mad to miss out!
I wouldn’t be where I am today without this magazine, but what I love most is that it’s written by bloggers for bloggers which is just amazing reading about some other bloggers. When I finished reading the first couple of magazines I knew that I needed this magazine in my life, so I decided to purchase a bronze subscription. So overall guys it is definitely worth buying this magazine, but it’s even better to do the yearly subscription.
It’s THE magazine that everyone wants to be a part of. There are in-depth interviews with all the cover stars in each issue and you get to find out interesting info like; why they started blogging, what motivates them, where they see blogging going in the future and getting to know the person behind the blog. I recently subscribed and got the Zoella issue (11) through the post the next day!! How’s that for amazing service?
This magazine has given so much to the community, it’s so powerful, it just goes to show how bloody brilliant we all are and we deserve it. It showcases what we can do, what we are capable of, how we help eachother and how strong blogging really is. I’ve found tons of amazing bloggers since subscribing to this magazine that I now adore. It’s lovely to know that people are getting the exposure that they truly deserve even if they don’t have the unbelievable stats that take years to build. It’s empowering and inspiring.
If you’re a blogger, aspiring to start up your own blog, or simply interested in the online world, then this magazine is perfect for you. Each of the 164 pages are jam packed with inspiration and I am sure it will make you love blogging even more than before!
Blogosphere is always one of my favourite magazines. From the design to the photography, it is so beautiful and inspirational.
It’s so good! It’s so nice to read a physical magazine that’s all about blogging and it features some amazing bloggers, too. Can’t wait for the next issue!
My first ever encounter with the magazine was issue 7 with Samantha Maria – I remember watching her cover reveal party on YouTube. From then, I was in awe that there was a Blogger-themed magazine to support bloggers and influencers like me. So unique!
It’s an amazing magazine! It’s packed full of useful stuff and helps me find new blogs to read!
