Dish Out Your Best Advice to The Nest

Born into XO Media Group’s publications designed around three life-changing events — namely marriage, establishing a home and parenthood – The Nest is all about making loving and living together easier for couples. It launched as a website in 2005, was converted into a print magazine shortly thereafter, and made the move back to digital in 2012.

“We still do the traditional magazine stories, just in a digital format,” said site director Heather Morgan Shott. “It’s a really great service for our readers.”

Good news, freelancers. The Nest frequently depends on freelance writers to keep the content fresh and fun. Readers of The Nest have access to both the Web content on TheNest.com, as well as the PDF version of the mag, which means that you have more opportunities to share your fabulous food, home décor, or relationship advice .
