Is it true? Is InStyle Weddings the next glossy to bite the dust?
We read on Gawker that Time is officially closing this gorgeous magazine and although we wouldn’t say we’re shocked…we are certainly sad. So, yet another conversation about the demise of magazines is getting started around the web. It’s really hard to watch, knowing that so many people behind these great publications are losing their jobs, are seeing their hard work come to an end.
The closing of magazines like Elegant Bride and InStyle Weddings, magazines that really have provided a little haven of gorgeousness, is SUCH a reality check for everyone in this industry. It’s another reminder that we have to tighten our ship, that we have to keep costs low and innovate quickly, that we have to grow inexpensively and thoughtfully. It’s a sad but really important lesson for all of us that are working to build our own publications on the web.
What do you guys think are the lessons to be learned?
