LABOR DAY like BIRTH OF ROOKIE day! (ew gross sorry)

Rookie is up and I could not be more happy or tired. I held a private VIP party in honor of our launch, but since I am the only even moderately important person I know, it was just me! Peanut butter, apple sauce, and double spoons all to myself.
Webcams are dangerous.
What else is there to say?? Go have a look! RookieMag.com! Thanks to everyone who has expressed enthusiasm towards this project since the idea first came about. I really hope you like it. Now go off and explore! I am going to finish off these jars and fall asleep to a hearty viewing of Bye Bye Birdie. (I don't even know, you guys.)

I've been reading some of the articles are up and I just have to say that this site is everything I have ever wanted in a website. It's peeeerrrrfeeeeccct. Really really great articles, it's just LOOKS wonderful, and I love it!
My one complaint is that it's loading really slow, which is unusual on my computer! :)

D♥R said...

Can we share the peanut butter ?

AMarieG said...

sounds like alot of fun!

Jenny said...

Brilliant mag, Tavi! I especially like the 'Today, I Am a Freshman' article x

Miss Maggie said...

The magazine is great! Why did they not have something like this when I was a teenager? Is it weird that I'm in my twenties and am really looking forward to reading it?

Apple sauce and peanut butter together? Must try...

mouse said...

my sister used to put apple sauce on EVERYTHING. french fries, potato chips, pasta. she is insane.

T E said...

Terrific magazine layout, can't wait to see the other content that gets released in hours! <3 (Though, I am an adult, but I still want to be "in the know" about what's going on with you "teenagers.")

Thanks for existing, Rookie Mag. I believe you have the potential to be a great source material for reading, for EVERYONE.

amelia said...

I spent most of the weekend looking forward to today and then today has been so busy, when I got home I napped and I'm only just seeing the Awesomeness now. Although I'm technically not a teenager any more. I'm young in spirit and have the unfortunate asset of a young mischievous face. People often still ask me how my school vacations are going and I have to bite my lip and wonder if I should say.. I left in like 2002.

Inspiration and fun, for teenagers and young women in general, nice one! thank you for sharing.

Hi Tavi! When I saw you beside Anna Wintour at a Fashion event last year(i forgot what that was!), I thought who is this young lady who's got an interesting fashion sense? Since then I have been checking your blog. I've seen your outfits and how you've grown as your own stylist! You are such a good and brilliant writer! Congratulations on RookieMag.com!!!

You know what? You, Tavi, are a curse to all teenage girls with any braincells- I'm never going to stop checking Rookie and reading EVERY DARN THING you post. I love the site. It is BRILLIANT. If it were an actually glossy pages mag I would be drooling all over and flicking pages back and forth till they get all tatty. As it is I had to mop the screen.
You've filled a gap in the- WORLD- for something like that. All praise to you, but curses too as now I'll spend even longer online.

Hey-ho, you deserve that apple sauce.

Jason said...

Best wishes! It reminds me of something my girls might have done at your age if the internet was as easily accessible back then. Again best wishes personally and professionally.

Lola said...

I love it!! You are amazing. xxx

StreetCreature said...

I've been following your blog for a while now and I really feel like I've gotten to know you. I just wanted to say congradulations and I'm so proud of how far you've come in this industry. That wasn't for any random reason though, you are truly unique, honest, witty, charming, adorable, and relatable. I love your new web mag even though it's a lot of reading and less pictures like this (which I miss). But I did end up reading most of those lengthy articles. I really enjoyed the back to school celebrity article where they all talked about their high school experiences. I wish I had this outlet when I was younger and going through the hell that was high school. I'm 21 now. Anyway, you are an amazing role model to teenage girls and I hope you never give up. You've really inspired me, Tavi. Good luck in this harsh world!

Rachel said...

dude, fucking CONGRATS. the site is SO GOOD. I wish I was a high school girl, but I will be reading it anyways. seriously, if this had existed when I was 14, I would have read the shit out of it. passing the link along to any and all young cousins or friends' younger sisters. I am so happy you did it.
