Blueprint: Design Your Life

Blueprint: Design Your Life was a bimonthly women's interest magazine published by Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia. MSLO announced that they intended to release 2 test issues in May and August 2006, with an initial base circulation of 250,000, and planned to begin regular bimonthly publication in 2007. [1] The first issue was released May 1, 2006.

The magazine targeted women ages 25-40, and competed with magazines such as Real Simple (whose former editor Tom Prince headed the new magazine [2]) and Domino for readers. It was recognized as a move by the company to become more competitive in the younger demographic, and diversify its interests outside the core Martha Stewart brand. [3]

Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia closed Blueprint after its January/February 2008 issue, moving it to the web and to special issues of Martha Stewart Weddings.[4]
