Print media is gradually fading out as we are moving to the new exciting world of digital gadgets. I have seen quite a lot of friends who used to tell me that they will never buy kindle or ebook reader as they do not like reading electronically. However, the same set of people I have seen now a days sporting kindle or flipping electronics magazine in their smart phones.
I have been blogging for almost 7 years and I have been enjoying every bit of the blogging. I have written so far 10 books and I am quite happy with the amount of the writing I have done in the recent times. One of the very popular request, I often encounter why not build a magazine from all the writing I have been doing. I have been avoiding this idea for a quite a long time as I wanted to focus on blogging and quality writing. I also believed that users want to read quality fun articles from every good resource and not only from me. I really wanted to make sure that I get the best articles out there in the world and include in my magazine as well. Now due to copyright issues, it is not possible at all. This was the major issue, why I stayed away from magazines.
I wanted following qualities in my magazine:
- Responsive web design
- Easy to read on any device (Mobile, Web, eReader, older browsers)
- Flexibility to change cover page and content any time
- Support for any kind of web element (video, blog, articles, images, sound or anything you can think of)
- Easy to include a antibodies article without violating their copy-writes
- Social media enabled
Finally, I have found the solution and I am incredibly proud to present you the SQL Authority magazine.
The link to the magazine is http://mag.SQLAuthority.com (please bookmark it). You can also download the clipboard app and read this on your mobile devices. I am eagerly waiting for your experience with the magazine. Please leave a comment with your suggestions and feedback.
