Magazines are something that is quite popular. They have come a long way and many love to read them. Many have multiple subscriptions to different magazines. There are all sorts of them out there. Yet, how much do we really know about them is a question we all wonder.
Many use magazines to find the latest fashions. There are some others that use them to keep up with the latest technology. Others use them to learn recipes while some use them to find the dish on the celebrities. They serve all sorts of different purposes.
What we know magazines to look at hasn’t always been that way. What is this to mean? The first magazine is said to have come out in the 1700’s. However, as we know magazines to be these short sweet and to the point easy readers, this wasn’t always the case. At one time, they were just like the books we read today.
It wasn’t until well after World War II that the magazine as we seem them today took form. This was because of the fact that they couldn’t afford to print as much as they could back in the day during this time period. This is why the magazine has gone to the shorter version that we know it as today. Some continue to be a little on the thick side, but one can expect to pay a bit more.
What was once used to talk about the political beliefs of people is still used for the same thing to some degree today. However, now they have added a whole lot more to these magazines. It’s all about keeping the readers happy which is why so many different magazines have come out on the market.
The price of magazines varies depending on the magazine. It’s all about how many advertisements they can get in the magazine as well as how much color is included in them as well. It also depends on how much printing has to be done as well.
However, the magazine industry has taken a different approach. This approach started during the World War II era. Many find that these magazines portray women in the wrong light and lead people on. They use the advertisements to push the things that parents try to talk their kids out of such as smoking. On top of that, they find that some of the photo ops in these magazines show half naked women and half naked men.
Magazines aren’t so much written by a staff anymore as well. There are many magazines that take submissions from people and publish them in these magazines. They have sections where they publish things that the readers wrote to the editor and many other things. Many have taken the approach that these magazines are for people who like certain things so what better way than to allow them to help them create the magazine since they would know best. All they then need are some fillers for the magazines which talks about some of the latest things of that subject.
