Damn. Sorry I missed this thread from earlier!
I think we can all agree that print is dying but I don't think it will or has to go extinct... Actually now I subscribe to several print magazines. Gear Patrol, Hoodinkee, Iron & Air, META.
There's a place for it. I think a lot about where the gaps are in the world of adventure motorcycles and we've been thinking about doing a one-time printed Journal for the site supporters of ADVrider...
Adventure Rider Journal. What should we put in it?
@Shay I think reviews are best served on the internet. I think there's an opportunity to focus on inspiration and aspiration. Stories and photography that really pop in printed form on nice quality paper and limited ads. Wide shots of riding in Morocco @Chris ...
I feel like it would be special to connect with the ADV community in a new way.
I can see how the math for companies like Bonnier that are struggling can be tricky, but I've spoken to enough printers, fulfillment companies that I also KNOW that a niche publication is very viable if done correctly. A similar approach to one we've been developing on the homepage of ADV for 18 months.
But what does the audience want? We covered the end of MCN sadly and there was a lot of thoughts on what people liked and didn't. They had at one time in their glory days 50,000 subscribers monthly.
