Magazines VS Webzines

In order to justify the longevity of print, an editor of The Rising Nepal once said how portable a newspaper or a magazine is, and how it can be used by more than one person, how it will never be extinct because there is the internet to feed we hungry people. I couldn't agree more.

Print is not only easy to carry around and resourceful but it is also very reliable. Webzines have become so
convenient not to only access but to also create and this reduces its credibility and the reader's loyalty. I always believed that many technologies might come and go but nothing can replace print. It has been here for eons of generations and it will continue to remain for another eons of generations. Come to think of it, it is actually enhancing the glory of print.

And my belief was satisfactorily printed in words in Vogue last year by an advertising campaign 'The Power of Print' launched by five major magazine companies viz Charles H. Townsend, Condé Nast; Cathie Black, Hearst Magazines; Jack Griffin, Meredith Corporation; Ann Moore, Time Inc.; and Jann Wenner, Wenner Media to promote the vitality of magazines. With the rhetorical headlines and creative links, could anybody still argue about the prevalence of print? Not me!

I love the internet, it is how i make money but it cannot replace the feeling of settling down in a comfy chair with a cup of tea and opening a new vogue.

I second you Amanda. We need both these sources in order to live our lives to our utmost satisfaction. Um, just like Dinesh Wagle did not stop writing for Kantipur because he has his own blog which is a faster means to connect to his readers.
