SPIN Magazine Ends Print Publication

SPIN Magazine Ends Print Publication

thom yorke spin magazineAs music magazines continue to lose funding, as well as relevancy, many of them have decided to close their doors and go solely with their digital outlet. As is the case with SPIN, who has just announced that they will no longer be printing copies of their magazine. The 25 year publication’s decision to end printing is effective December. For those of you who are still subscribers, you will get Car & Driver for the remainder of your subscription? What the hell.

Anyway, how many of you out there still read music magazines? Do you care that magazines are dropping left and right? [via]

    I agree. I think people are only going to continue to by ‘hard’ paper anything (magazines, newspapers, etc.) is if they offer something outside of information (which is instant now) or bland interviews. If you’re going to sell your writing now in 2012 you have to make readers feel like they’re not going to get what you’re offering anywhere else. Unfortunately, there is a generation of writers who can only be cute or clinical instead of actually knowing how to capture readers.

    the notoriety of the magazines lets say 90’s was that you couldn’t get information anywhere else, hence the internet once again has struck its might ax to the back of contemporary mediums, i read books on kindle now.
