When I was a young girl, my mother encouraged me to read and purchased anything that had a written word. Magazines were reading materials I received monthly. At the time, there weren’t many books that spoke to a pre-teen or teenager girl.
Well, I fell in love with magazines. Still till this day, I pour over my magazines. I subscribe to Vogue–the love of my life–Vanity Fair, Glamour, Cosmo, Marie Claire, GQ, Writer’s Digest and Romantic Times.
Even now, I know the days when they are or should be stuffed into my mailbox. I read them from cover to cover and even the Editor’s Letter.
My favorite magazine in the world is VOGUE. I must be the only person in the world who would be utterly thrill that I would jump for it if I were to meet Anna Wintour. I love her. Each month she and the Vogue team produce a product that take me away to a stylish planet. Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw said she purchased Vogue before food since she thought it fed her soul. I agree.
Much of publishing is becoming digital, I implore the publishing beings not to take away the printed word. I love the shiny feel of the vivid photos. The way the pages curl up and the quick snap as I flick the pages. So, please until you can recreate the reading-magazine experience, keep on printing them. I’ll keep on reading them. Since I received my Vanity Fair and Cosmo. Tah-Tah.
