Coming Soon!

Coming Real Soon, the Holiday issue of House of Fifty.

I hope you'll enjoy all we've put together for this issue!

And a reminder, in case you didn't see this post in which I explain the necessity to move away from offering the publication for free to a "pay-to-read" model, beginning with this issue it will be available for purchase for $1.50. I suspect we'll lose a few readers, and I do wish I was able to continue to offer it at no charge, but... 

It's a necessary step in being able to continue publishing  House of Fifty, offering up original content and compensating all the wonderful writers, bloggers, photographers and people behind the scenes on the tech and design side who work so hard contributing to the many pages of each issue. A big thanks to them, and to you, in advance, for sticking around! 

Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. No worries Janell, I'm a loyal follower! Can't wait to see this issue! I know you've been working so hard and we all appreciate HoF!!!!

  2. I have been a loyal follower between the magazine and blog for quite some time and I can't think of a better publication to part with a few dollars for. I'm looking forward to the treats that await me in the new issue!

  3. I can't wait!!! I think I'm even more excited this time around because I haven't had access to preview it! Ughhh, I hate being without my laptop:(

    Anyways, I'm sure it's going to be fabulous! And can you believe it's already time for the holidays?!?? I'm stoked!

  4. $1.50 doesn't even buy me half a chai latte at Starbucks. :)
    Well worth it and I've got everything crossed that this will be a successful strategy for HoF.

  5. Hi, I have been a fan of your blog for a few years and an early fan of HofF. Are you going to offer a Windows app? If not some of us, me included, will miss out on your great publication.

  6. I am looking forward to it! I appreciate all of the hard work you and your contributors put into each issue. Thank you! Enjoy your weekend Janell.

  7. SusanB,
    What a great question, thanks for asking. Yes, HOF will still be available to read on the computer. After it is purchased a link will be sent to you to access it. We are currently working on setting this up, with the goal of making the process as simple and easy to use as possible. Of course it will still be available as an app through iTunes as well.


  8. can't wait to see what you have in store for us this season. I am already busy in my mind thinking of Holiday tables, gifts and mantels,

  9. Can't wait! I know it will be smashing!!!

  10. Well, I adore that image you posted. And I think $1.50 is VERY reasonable. I would purchase for that price. I hope this issue is very successful for you.

  11. Can't wait to see the Holiday issue!
