Magazine Growth Shows Print is Not Dead

You may be surprised to learn that for the first quarter of 2011, there were more magazines started then for the year prior.

Even more telling is that the number of launches far exceed the number of magazines that folded, which remained about the same as the prior year.

This means that there is a net year-to-year growth for magazines, with more startups but about the same number of shutters.

I guess they didn’t buy into the oft-quoted “wisdom” that print is dead.

Not only is print not dead, but it is alive and thriving!
