1. The Guardian is now 90p. It only went up about six months ago to 80p, the swines
I GOT 6 TEAS IN EARLIER.
pretty good so far. the guy at work who i despise isnt in and im feeling really positive, i always do about this time of day because its light and sunny but by the time i get to go home its dark and i dont feel like doing anything but beefing (i like this term!) in bed.
I CANT WAIT FOR SUMMER
also massively bored.
cream on my hot chocolate (easy one for you hard of humour types)
But that's because we printed it as advance news in last weeks magazine, so I was able to have the right change ready. Mmm, advance news. I'm gonna subscribe the fuck out of it as well.
Nothing has made me angry today. It's a great, great day.
Most publications are trying to go cheaper now. It might hurt them doing that
But I work in magazine publishing and the goal at the moment is reducing the price and making up the difference online
Is making the difference up online really achievable?
but it can help stem the losses in a few ways. I actually would have thought the Guardian website would have been one of the few that would have been a useful money spinner, but then their staffing levels are huge which wouldn't be cheap.
So many magazines are just vanity projects for their owners now.
We had a new editor start a fortnight ago who has a lot of insider 'gossip' regarding the financial state of some pretty big name magazines, and he said that pride is the only thing keeping the hardcopy side of things going for many of them.
We deal with a lot of magazine PR people and 'off the record' some of them aren't overly confident about the potential futures for their publications.
I'm looking forward SOOOO much to next months six-monthly ABCs. Mmmm, pretty...
I think the other thing keeping a lot of them going is a sort of last man standing mentality. The general state of publishing was already getting grim, and now with the financial thing, there are going to be magazine titles going under this year, in every area. I know part of our strategy is to sit it out and wait for some of the weaker ones to drop out.
and leaving the house in a complete state and claiming she's too busy despite wittering for HOURS ON THE PHONE and still going out galavanting. SHE IS EVIL
she fucking nicks the rest of ours half the time.
USING ALL MY MILK.
it's the only language she understands.
it understates all the other world bloodshed not on the news
decided to do roadworks in Angel and made me late for work and probably late every day for the next 6 weeks.
