Former ElleGirls Launch I Heart Daily for Teen Girls

logo.gifWhat to do when the readers won’t come to you? Go to them! Teen fashion magazines have been hit hard during the recent tsunami that’s been rolling through the media world — CosmoGirl! folded last month, and ElleGirl and Teen People closed in 2006 — now two former ElleGirl editors have decided to take matters into their own hands.

Anne Ichikawa and Melissa Walker have just launched I Heart Daily an email newsletter and website that delivers one item each day from the world of entertainment, fashion, beauty or news — think an a fresher version of Daily Candy but aimed at teenage girls. Say the ladies: “During our years in print, we realized that magazine websites were often an afterthought, running repurposed magazine pieces, stories that were killed, or content that was deemed ‘not good enough’ for print. Lame.” Lame indeed, bet they are re-thinking that strategy now! Anyway, Ichikawa and Walker assure there will be nothing lame about I Heart Daily. See for yourself here.

Hungry New Yorkers: Tasting Table to Do the Tasting For You

tstintblg.pngSo! If there is one thing New Yorkers know how to do well it is eating and drinking. Seriously. But what if adventurous eaters don’t want to have to do the sidewalk-pounding research to find the good food? Tasting Table thinks they have a solution. The daily email publication, which launched last month, is the brainchild of the folks who helped back and develop Daily Candy and Thrillist and is edited by Nick Fauchald, formerly of Food & Wine. The goal? To deliver “first-hand, informed advice in a knowledgeable editorial voice.” Says Fauchald:

We won’t cover a new restaurant until we’ve vetted it ourselves and experienced it as our readers will…We are not obsessed with the new; we love the classic. We’ll remind readers about venerable New York restaurants and forgotten favorites that may have slipped off the radar.

Also, for those of you feeling the economic squeeze, never fear! There are also “recipes — tested and simplified for the home cook — from top chefs and bartenders.”
