We're Back!

Jun 9, 2011

Heidi Marsh, our marketing director, is pioneering our online efforts.

Hopefully you've missed South Dakota Magazine's online presence. Well, here we are with a new look and some new content. We've had many meetings and work sessions, trying to plan for the best possible site for our readers. We have a vision for this to be a site that celebrates life in South Dakota.

Please visit us often for stories — some written just for the Web, and others revised from past issues of the magazine. We'll also provide an up-to-date calendar of events, colorful photo galleries, recipes and food stories. Several columnists will bring new perspective to the site, and we're making other plans as well. We'd like this to be an everyday extension of our magazine, which we print six times a year. We have a lot to share in between issues!

Our marketing director, Heidi Marsh, is pioneering our online efforts. She ushered us into the online world when she joined our staff by getting us on facebook and twitter and sending out e-newsletters. Now she is becoming a web expert by learning the ins and outs of web design and function. Here's a little interesting trivia on Heidi — she is 26 years old, the exact same age as South Dakota Magazine. She was even born in the same month our first issue appeared on newsstands.

What you see here is just the beginning. Tell us what you think of this new look, and what you'd like to see more of (or less).

In other magazine news, we're sending our July/August issue of the paper magazine to the printer today. It will be on newsstands by July 1.  Our magazine staff will be celebrating after work this Friday on the dock at Yankton's historic Ice House. Stop by and break a beer bottle with us. It's an Ice House tradition.

Hello, Heidi and staff of SDMagazine, we love your magazine and read it front to back, I do have a question about a picture I took last night, June 9, 2011, It is of some beautiful wild flowers that I picked on our property here in Butte County. The picture is now my profile on Facebook, so you can see it there, under Linda Anders, Mud Butte, SD. I was wondering if you would like to use it in your magazine, the flowers in the photo are all native here. The pink, large ones are Wild Begonias, or sometimes called Veined Dock, the purple are wild rockets, yellow are from the mustard family, there is another yellow one that I am not sure what the name is. I thought they made a gorgeous boquet on my deck table, you can't have it any better in June in SD when we have had all the moisture, the beauty of the SD prairie is like none other, What could be better??? Please reply about the picture and I can send it to you?? Thank-you very much and keep up the great work with the SD Magazine:)

CONGRATULATIONS TO HEIDI !!

So wonderful to read the magazine online ....I am from Brazil and I live in Goiânia and for me it is really nice to read and be in touch with what´s going on there in SD. I was an exchange student in Nebraska/South Dakota some years ago. I was blessed to be chosen by the Stevens family and since then 1996 we´ve been in touch.

I have the Jan/Feb 2010 magazine here in my office and a lot of people read it...!!
