What IS IT with our favorite mags????


Just last year, or was it earlier this year, that several of our most favorite magazines closed their doors, and no longer are in publication????
So today I am even more sad than I was about Cottage Living or a few of the others....(well, maybe, but hey I LOVE magazines!)because I learned that the BH&G publishers are no longer going to publish Creative HOME magazine.....I redid SO MANY ROOMS mentally because of this publication!! I really did enjoy it. And they would take one room of a reader each month and re-do it for them.....did THAT put them out of business??? I hardly think so.....nonetheless, I am sad that it's now going to become ReadyMade or something of the sort. I will miss Creative HOME so much.......
GOOD THING I've got my blogs to read......all the good mags seem to be sliding away.

Oh, I agree! I guess with all of the information that is out there on the Internet, magazines just aren't selling like they used to. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the Internet for inspiration, but there is NOTHING like holding a thick, glossy magazine in your hands and drooling over it's pictures!

You are so right. This world is making some big changes. The new stuff comes faster now then it did a few years ago. Maybe my head is just spinning faster.

I loved that magazine too! I didn't know that it was gone. It is so sad that so many have had to stop publication. Like you said, at least we have blogland!:-) Have a great week and thanks for your sweet comments!

I really liked that magazine too. It saddens me to hear about the loss of so many GOOD magazines. Blogland becomes even more special at news like this.

I too have been very sad! But you know with the prices being 7.95 and 9.95 it is hard to get them. I just don't always think there is that much in them. Romantic Homes went up to 5.99 a few months back. I know they need money but us buying will only have mags if they don't stop. We couldn't afford what is advertised in them anyway.
DO you know did Hallmark discontinue thier magazine? I don't remember one since Feb. It is sad I miss them all ESP ME!!!
Hugs, Lisa

Regardless of my 5,000 sq. ft. spacious home, I LOVED Cottage Living. I thought to myself, "at least I have those blogs"!

Lisa said...

Oh Sue! Say it ain't so! I love Creative Home. How did you find out? The pickin's are getting slim.:(

Sorry to hear that Creative Home magazine is also going out of business. At least we have our great blogs to look at in blogland. I get so many great ideas and inspiration there. Have a wonderful day. Love & blessings from NC!

Oh my gosh! I am so bummed! I LOVE that magazine too. It is sad that so many mags are leaving our world. :-(

Bummer!!! All these great magazines folding. :( :( Now we're going to have to read, like, actual books. ;) As long as they don't trash any more I might be okay. Maybe.

I'm sad to hear that too. That was one mag that I always found so much inspiration in. :-(
