Page Review 2021
Another year, another look at our favorite stories from 2021

Covering Celebs

Cameron Douglas January

Laura Dern January

Zac Clark February

Queen Latifah April

Mindy Kaling August

We love featuring celebrities, but we always make sure there is some connection to New Jersey, like when Laura Dern partners with a Cherry Hill photographer to portray her South Jersey mom in a memoir. Or a Haddonfield guy ends up engaged to the Bachelorette! We’re always grateful they allow us to tell their story.

South Jersey Summer

Shark Bait August

Swamp Monster September

Should Have Been a Cow(Girl) October

SJ Mag’s Elyse Notarianni and Klein Aleardi introduced a digital video series this year that followed the pair as they visited spots all over South Jersey. Elyse gave us a glimpse of all the fun they had with these first-person stories. If you haven’t watched the series, check them out on our Facebook page. (They’re super popular – averaging 20,000+ views for each video.)


The Man Who Saved Clementon Park
By Kate Morgan
We had no idea this detailed account of how Gene Staples was reviving Clementon Park would touch so many people. Our inbox and social channels lit up with people’s memories of this special South Jersey landmark.


Almost An Olympian
By Kate Morgan
The opening photo for this story is one of our favorite photos – it shows the incredible strength of Priscilla Frederick-Loomis. The great thing about this article is the story does the same thing.


Doug’s Impact
By Sal Paolantonio
We’re always honored when ESPN’s SalPal writes for SJ Magazine. In March, he penned his personal thoughts on the Super Bowl-winning Eagles Coach as he prepared to leave the city.


Get Growing
By Elyse Notarianni
Gardening expert Toni Farmer has been teaching SJ Mag’s Marianne Aleardi how to garden for 2 years now, and we’ve chronicled the (rather hilarious) lessons in our digital video series “The Goal is to Become a Gardener.” We asked Toni to share some of her gardening wisdom with our readers.

Catch both seasons of “The Goal is to Become a Gardener” on SJ Mag’s Facebook page.

How South Jersey Brought School Home February

Momservations May

Killing It In The Kitchen June

We love when we can include readers in our content. We asked parents to give us their best tip for remote schooling in February, and then in May, women sent us the one thing that surprised them most about being a mom. For the Men’s Issue in June, we asked guys to give us their best cooking tip. Each time, our readers came through, offering valuable insights to help their South Jersey neighbors. We love being able to make the connection.
