Which Magazines Does Lisa Read Offline?
I’m defiantly breaking Susan’s "No Memes" rule since both Li Evans and Barry Schwartz tagged me asking to share this pivotal piece of information with you. Inquiring minds want to know, right? [You should have heard the flimsy excuse she used to justify this. Then she threatened to post it even without my approval. –Susan] — I don’t think participating in the community discussion is a flimsy excuse. You’re just jealous no one asked you. And do you know why no one asked you? Because they don’t like you.
Truthfully, I don’t read as many magazines today as I used to. First, I don’t have nearly as much disposable income as I’ve had previously, and second, despite my best intentions, my magazines are most commonly use as a transportation device for Swat and Jack Jack (my two cats for the newbies) to quickly get from one side of the coffee table/counter to the other. It’s a YouTube video begging to be made.
The ones I do make a good attempt to read regularly are:
- Search Marketing Standard (represent!)
- The New Yorker
- Rolling Stone
- US News and World Report
- People – It’s the best reason to go to the doctor!
- Sports Illustrated – Only during basketball season or during the Olympics when they wake up and realize Track and Field is a sport.
- Men’s Health – I’ve tried to explain to them that the person who ordered this no longer lives with me, but they keep sending it anyway. So I skim.
There used to be other titles on that list but now I read them online. Because, you know, my entire life is slowly being merged online so I never, ever have to engage with another type of medium again. Huzzah! My journalism professors would be so very proud of me. Only not.
