(here I am indulging in trashy gossip magazines…woops!)
For the longest time, I considered myself a magazine junkie. And, I still enjoy reading magazines in the evening while the TV is playing in the background. It brings me back to a simpler time, and it's nice to just… read.. something I rarely do when I'm working on the internet and finding myself working on 5 things at the same time: answering emails, writing posts, twittering, reading blogs, looking at kittens. I guess doing two things is downright relaxing!
We all know that the print business is undergoing some changes… and this isn't going to be a post about that, because I can talk about it for ages. But I do know I still read magazines when to keep up on what the traditional media is doing, and because I find it enjoyable. What this post is about, is the publishers are keying into custom subscription services like Maghound where you can pay a monthly fee (plans start at $4.95/month for three magazines) and select which magazines you want. Unlike regular subscriptions, you can swap out whenever you want, like…. tired of Elle? Go for Nylon? Or Real Living? Cat Fancy?
