What To Do?
There it was in the mail...the annual renewal form for my Interweave Knits. Last year I promptly sent in my renewal and then the next issue arrived and I questioned my decision.
Last April, I questioned myself again and even blogged about it. A few of you agreed and mentioned you had let your subscriptions lapse and you check the issue out at the bookstore before buying it.
I do love to get a magazine in the mail, I love browsing through it, checking out some of the products reviewed and advertisers websites...however I hate paying money for just one or two good patterns per issue.
What to do? Lapse my subscription? Why pay for the subscription when a few months later the pattern is for sale anyway? I think online might just ruin the publishing business sometimes.
