I’m very glad a friend who lives in Colorado Springs shared with me your profile of Kathy Raasch. That article introduced me to your publication. I’ll look for MORE on a newsstand nearby.
Periodically I will purchase your magazine from the newsstand. For a magazine that caters to the older woman, I found your article difficult to read due to the font size used (see size in your "Help be Make More even more fabulous" area).
I have bi-focal contact lenses so I recognize my eyesight needs help - but this is the main reason I do not subscribe to your magazine - I can't read it.

This was my first issue of More which I am not sure why I received it. There were a few articles in there I thought were very good. However I was totally turned off my the cover of Michele Obama. Before I could even read the magazine I had to rip the cover off. I think you should stick to articles not politically involved.
I've been a reader of More forever.....
Three years ago, as I walked the More half marathon with my daughter (I was 58 and she was 37), I decided that the magazine no longer applied to me. It was meant for much younger readers.
I was going to let the subscription run out and then, out of the blue (or mail) came an offer - two free subscriptions with my paid one. Well, both of my daughters were approaching THAT age, so why not. I continued.
In the last few issues I noticed that something has changed. There are more articles I like to read and more "my age" interesting tid bits. So, I just wanted to thank you. I am now 61 and even though I am not reading everything in the magazine, I read the majority of it.
By the way, your February letter from the editor about not having any sense of directions, applied to me completely. I am also ambidextrous and couldn't find my way out of a box without my GPS.
All the best,
I love your magazine and seek it out at my local grocery, that is the good part. For the life of me however I just can't seem to commit and invest as a subscriber.
I am a freelance writer and that sometimes could be a blessing and a curse. It leads to a deeper enjoyment of what you read however it makes you aware if the magazine is not quite giving you that sense of fulfillment when you come to the last page.
So "More" needs a little bit more. I would normally not be "ballsy" enough to write this especially since I want to pitch an article idea or two to your magazine. But every time I read your "Letter From The Editor" section I feel like I've received correspondence from an old friend that is catching me up on the latest escapade in her life. So, pardon my familiarity this one time.
Thanks for your time and a magazine that certainly resonates with me and other women of a certain age. I am looking forward to sending a query.

Thank you for a balanced publication which encourages me as I go through huge changes that would feel isolating otherwise. Thank you for sharing some of your struggles with being taken seriously and merging many facets of your being. I believe you impart a considerable influence on the magazine so I feel you deserve thanks for your efforts.
I received a gift subscription to More. It is a classy magazine, very nice and I have enjoyed it. Contrary to what some people said, even though I don't especially love Michelle Obama, I thought the photo of her on the cover was the prettiest I have ever seen her look. It's obviously airbrushed but still a very nice picture of her.
My issue is the ad in the back of the magazine for the Trojan Intimate Massager with a picture of a woman on top of a man. Why would you put something like that in your magazine? I felt I had to hide this magazine away when my grandchildren came to visit. Yikes.

I recently bought an issue of More (Michele Obama is on the cover). I enjoy your magazine because there are older models. I am 44 and actual like my aging face.
