There was a time when I used to subscribe to at least four magazines. Oops…erase that. My husband and I subscribed to at least four magazines. Over time, most of them have dropped off, but I still love reading my favorite magazines when I have downtime. With our culture moving away from reading hardcopy printed material, and of course the recession, I wonder about the fate of magazines. Perhaps it’s just my imagination, but Time magazine seems thinner to me as does U.S. News and World Report, both of which we subscribed to this year. I hope these and other read-worthy magazines are able to weather the ad revenue drought and survive. What a shame it would be to lose magazines and newspapers.
To do my part in supporting the magazine publishing industry, I’ll not only share my favorites, but will offer a $20 voucher for a free subscription to the winner of this month’s contest. Here are a few of the magazine titles that the winner will be able to choose from: People, Essence, In Style, Golf Magazine, Southern Living, Time, Cooking Light, and many others.
In no particular order, here is my list of favorite magazines:
1. Writer’s Digest
3. Golf For Women (I learned that this magazine has shut down after 20 years of publication)
Below are the following ways to enter the contest.
1. Leave a comment on my blog for one entry into the drawing.
