Magazine Subscriptions

Even with all the reading I do on the web, I still subscribe to a number of magazines. I think print publications still definitely have an audience and provide something that blogs can’t.

Here’s a list of magazines that I subscribe to or buy regularly at the newsstand:

How about you? What magazines still arrive at your house?

The New Yorker and Rangefinder, the latter of which is free.

Good thing that's all I get because comments are only allowed two html tags.

I don't really have time for anything else.

Dammit!

The New Yorker.

Maybe I need a subscription to some html magazine.

I'm a food professional, so all of my incoming magazines are from that world, except one:
Backpacker, Gourmet, Food Arts, a freebie for those in the biz, Bon Appétit, and Food & Drink. That magazine is produced by the Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO), Canada. It's available free at their stores. If anybody has friends in Ontario or lives close to the border, it's an awesome magazine. In fact, it's probably my favorite. I have my buds mail it to me after they've read it.

Ciao,

Not the counting the techie trade magazines that I mysteriously show up even though I never subscribed...the only one I get in paper is Sound & Vision. Crutchfield gave me a free one year subscribtion last year, I guess hoping I'd be inspired to buy something I read about. When renewal time came it was only $10 - and I do enjoy reading about $25000 TVs that I'll never buy - so I reupped.

My daughter gets 4 or 5 equestrian related mags, and my son gets Sports Illustrated for Kids, which sadly does not include the swimsuit issue.

Rolling Stone. I may not read every issue, but the ones that I do read are well worth the subscription price.

I can't believe we both subscribe to Video Watchdog. I just started mine. It's one of those things that make my husband shake his head and sigh.

Other than that:

National Geographic
Science News
Martha Stewart Living



What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
