Did you start something new this year? A new job? A new diet or a new workout programme? Maybe you have a new baby or puppy at home? I started something new: this job. I’m the new Digital Editor for Women’s Health.

This is my first job in magazines. I used to be the editor for Channel24.co.za, SA’s biggest entertainment website.

While I studied journalism, it was always my dream to one day work in magazines, and here I am…

It’s funny how life can take off on a course of its own. A work opportunity opens up and before you realise, it ends up being what you do for a living and what you excel in.

At the moment, I’m really good at this – managing websites and dabbling in all things digital. And it is what I will be doing at Women’s Health.

Even though I’ve only been here a few weeks, we’re already in the process of rolling out a new mobile site. We’re also planning a massive facelift for the website and will hopefully surprise you with a few awesome apps later in the year.

Yes, a whole bunch of exciting new digital projects coming your way, so watch this space!

A clever guy, David Weinbaum, once said, “The secret to a rich life is to have more beginnings than endings”.

So, here’s to new beginnings!
