online magazines: a new obsession

7 Sep

I may be late jumping on this band wagon, but this is truly one of the greatest things I have discovered…in a while.  If you only knew how much money I spend and have spent on magazines…let’s just say it was enough to request a line item in the budget from my fiance.  I. love. magazines. Everything about this glossy printed material is sheer perfection in my eyes.  What I love most about magazines is that I can hold them in my hand.  I look at a picture and that is the exact coloring of a certain chair or curtain.  I can rip out pages, circle my favorites, tab inspirational looks…anything.  So, when the new online magazine fad started, I was truly turned off.  Just like the online books and Kindle craze, I was not into it.  I love tangibility, and that is just not what the new online gadgets are about.

..But here I am. Talking about online magazines like they are next best thing.  And I believe they are!

Here’s some great things about online magazines that you may or may not already know:

  1. They are FREE.
  2. You can scroll over items on a magazine page and it has a link leading to where you can buy that item.  Hello, instant gratification.
  3. They are just as well-designed as any other real life magazine
