The New York Times published an article yesterday discussing on-line magazines and their success, future, and influence in the design world: The Thriving (Online) Shelter Magazine Industry. The article is definitely worth a read if you have some time. Grace Bonney from Design Sponge breaks down the pros and cons of the article here in a wonderful way and I also think her article deserves a note.
Personally I'm surprised it took so long for the New York Times to write this piece. I have a large number of clients and friends who don't even know that these free on-line magazine sources exist. I completely understand that they most likely don't have time to sit down for 30 minutes when the issues come out to scour through, but think about downloading them to your iPad or Kindle so you can read them while on vacation or while idling in the waiting room of your doctor's office. Or maybe spend a little less time on Facebook and Twitter each week (I guess I'm calling the kettle black here :) or watch one less Housewives episode? Either way, start subscribing to these on-line shelter magazines (free) and enjoy the world of inspiration that awaits! Hopefully Nursery Notations will get featured in one of them someday!
