The Old Soldier has been working on his education as an online magazine publisher. Yesterday, as I scanned all the print magazines on the shelves in the browsing room of Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh (the public library) here in Oakland where I live, I was struck by the variety of the magazines.
There were magazines about knitting, eating, poetry, photography, cinema, crafts, literature, golf, guns, history, astrology, archeology, history…the list just went on and on and on. I sat down with a magazine about amateur radio.
Then when I got home, I continued with my education. I googled the magazines The Atlantic, Esquire and Penthouse. The history of these magazines made for interesting reading. And all of the above publications have an online presence. My education as an online publisher continues…
PS Penthouse just filed for bankruptcy.
