And where have I been? SoBella Creations commented on this post and said she was sad to see Mary Engelbert's Home Companion was no longer in print. WHAT? How did I not know? I have noticed there hasn't been a new issue out and I keep seeing the Christmas issue everytime I look, but I guess I just wasn't paying attention. How sad. I loved this magazine and the very interesting artists she featured and interviewed in each issue. Well, I did read on ME's site that she holds rights to the magazine and may find a future publisher. Let's hope.
In the same article there were a few other magazines named that I wasn't worried about personally and a "rumor" that Martha Stewart Living's Editor resigned. The article went on to say that he may have been let go and the magazine might end publishing. Just a "rumor" for now. I did not see anything on MSL site that says anything about the magazine. In fact, right now you can subscribe and get the free tote bag I received with my subscription last year.
With recent news of some major newspapers closing, I am sure I will be reading about more magazines doing just the same. I know it is the economy, but for some it is also the result of the internet and how easier and cheaper it is to publish to a website. And with laptops being so popular, one can just sit in their favorite chair or at a corner cafe and look at a website or news article online just as easily as a magazine.
Still, there's nothing like a real magazine newspaper for me.
