I was over at Deb's blog 'Talkin Trash' yesterday and she was talking about Carolyn Westbrook's new look on her website and how she is doing a monthly magazine on it.
All of us frustrated by the loss of our favorite magazines...it dawned on me...we are all doing a sort of magazine ourselves in our little blogs. We all have our faves we go to, to get our decorating fixes, we all show shots of our homes, our favorite haunts, our projects, our travels and our furry companions.
So to me, this is the coming of a new era, where magazines, filled with pharmaceutical ads and trash advertising takes up three quarters of the magazine, very frustrating, as the costs sky-rocket, yet we still have our decorating needs, especially when the desire to be inspired is calling our name...YO...I NEED HELP!!!
What a grand scheme and an easy way to show our new product and see what is new on the horizon...yet we've been doing it all along...we are the magazines of the future...AND...it is never ending in this vast virtual world we now live in. I would think our sales reps would really take hold of this new era, just think of the gas miles they would save. They would see your shops online and can tell you up front what your particular shop needs and what is new on the market.
And to think I balked at getting a computer...the shame...
