I'm sure readers will like it, but I'm more interested in how decorators feel about it.

I'm not sure why a decorator would rather have his or her work in Lonny, compared with House Beautiful or Elle Decor.

In other words: If the decorators aren't into it, how are the editors going to get any content?

Exciting! I am sure it will be a hit. My only fuss is that I am online ALL day for my business so I jump for joy when a new magazine lands in my mailbox, forcing me to curl up on the deck, hammock or wherever and delight in flipping pages.

Speaking of - how do you know you are famous? When one of your readers spots your name in Real Simple Magazine... and thinks... hey isn't that the girl with the wonderblog? Or maybe it wasn't you...

The jury's still out on this end. I still love print magazines...crawling into bed with them, turning the pages. Nothing can replace that. I wish Lonny would do it in print form!

that's how i'm feeling too. it's just not as much of an 'experience' sitting in front of the computer -- i do that all day.

my favorite and my best said...

pretty sure it will be like reading/seeing a blog that has content you've never seen before.
why can't they take it all and transfer it to paper? shiny, glossy, lovely paper...and i;m with laura, getting the publications in the mail is like christmas.
i will inevitably enjoy it but never in a million years will i enjoy it as much.

Laura said...

No... not me. You - at least I think it was you... a Jaime Meares in NC wrote in to the editor a little blurb about what home means to them. Not you? Hmmmm...

Paper-and-ink publishing involves tons of production and circulation costs, and that makes a very, very different business plan necessary to keep the operation profitable.

We as readers are going to have to be more flexible if we want this stuff to keep flowing our way--in any form.

Anything to fill the Domino void is welcome by me...

I think it will be great if they can consistently get original content. Blogs, although I love you all dearly, has seen a lot of recycling the last few months.

To answer Anon 10:53, I think decorators don't have a whole lot of magazines to choose from these days. I think they'll take exposure where they can get it. And hopefully some of the really big names will take kindly to new types of publications and show their stuff, there, too.

i agree with most of you in that i am on the computer all day, every day for work and nothing makes me happier than a fat, pretty print mag i can curl up with. i wish that was still viable. perhaps if they get enough readership...? i will check it out online, but dudes, are we all gonna end up being online all day and all through the night or what? there's only so much online time my wrists can take! we live in strange times.

hopefully it will test the waters on the interwebs then start publishing??

I LOVE PAPER, but i'll take whatever i can get. i just really need to see fresh eclectic rooms as often as possible. like NOW. lately, i drift right into sleep everytime i read any of the print mags.
