20th Post – Six Reasons Why Magazines Have a Future

This post is about a blog post, entitled ‘Six reasons why magazines have a future’, which discusses the future of magazines as a viable form of media, particularly in print. This particular post was written by Alex Lockwood, but the blog as a whole, called  ‘Online Journalism Blog’, is written by various journalists from the UK, Europe and India.

In his post, Lockwood reports on the outcome of the ‘What Happens to Magazines?’ industry event. Six reasons were given by the panel as to why magazines have a future, and some of these reasons related to online journalism.

Ashley Norris, of Shiny Media, believes that twenty or thirty blogs in a network will be doing the work of two or three magazines, brokering creative sponsorship between brands and social media. This is an interesting observation, as twenty or thirty blogs doesn’t sound the same as a magazine, or in this case two or three magazines.
