Dogs Today was launched in November 1990.
I was the editor.
I still am.
Back in the early 90s I remember talking to the editor of a very successful monthly woman's magazine. She'd been one of the judges at a posh publishing awards do. We'd won something and she'd liked what I wrote on the entry form, it had made her laugh.
She was asking me to write some articles for her magazine.
She asked, probably without realising how rude she was being, "When are you going to move over to proper magazines?"
I laughed and told her I already had my dream job. Was then, still is now.
I'm just about to write something up about the past 20 years and was wondering if there are any readers who would like to share their thoughts on the past two decades of magazines?
Anyone reading the blog who has been with us since issue one? When did you start reading? What's your favourite bits? Favourite contributor - several have written for the full 20 years!
