In Print or Online? It's Up to You.
Editor's note: This blog was written by Elizabeth Rosto Sitko, managing editor of ADVANCE for Long-Term Care Management.
Last week, Newsweek published its final print issue. As a magazine enthusiast (I subscribe to many, I've studied them, and I work for one), I was saddened to hear the news. I remember a time when finding one of my favorite magazines in the mail meant I would be sitting on the couch for the rest of the night to read it from cover to cover.
But times change, and the reality is that more and more publications are moving away from print formats and going online only. There are various reasons for this, including readers' preferences. Many don't want to carry around stacks of paper, and enjoy being able to read all of their favorite articles right from their very own laptop, tablet or smartphone.
I have to admit that I no longer subscribe our local paper, The Philadelphia Inquirer, because it's more convenient and less expensive to read it online. Luckily, your subscription to ADVANCE has always been and always will be free. And you still have your choice of reading the traditional paper version or our digital edition.
So, which do you prefer? To make sure it keeps coming (either to your mailbox or inbox), please update your contact information on an annual basis here: http://www.advanceweb.com/General/Subscriptions.aspx
