    Default Your Sweet Garage in a Magazine?

    Hey guys! My name is Chris and I work for Meredith Corporation, the producer of several magazines, including Wood Magazine. We will be producing a magazine called Dream Garages and Shops for publishing in September 2015. I am gathering leads for potential feature possibilities for that magazine. Of course I have seen some incredible garages on here, and many that might be a good fit! I am not sure I am getting the private message function to work right, so to be safe, it might be easiest to reply to this thread or email me directly at my work email, [email protected]. Please let me know if you're interested and I can explain what happens next. Thanks!

    Why would I pay for something that I can get for free on the web, let alone that one of the biggest threads on here is the World's Most Beautiful GARAGES & Exotics.

    People who post their garages on forums will get more views than a magazine. Plus the mag business is a dying one.

    I can't help with the PM feature, might be because you are new to the forum, but this garage has always been one that is truly amazing.

    Magazines are good to read on the toilet... or on flights... or when the internet goes out... or in waiting rooms... or lying on the couch... or...
    I’m a hypocrite and if I weren’t I’d be a success story.

    All those things you can do on a smart phone, can't remember when the last time I went to a Dr. office and read anything from the magazine section. If the power is out and its during the day i'll take a drive or go for a walk, down town, out of town etc, depending on the weather, get low battery on the phone plug it to re-charge in the car.

    Last couple of mags I read half of it was just advertisements.

    You've established that you don't read magazines.


    Many of us still do.

    How do you know I don't have a stack of mags that I got for freeor found ? Or that i'm a subscriber to some mag companies but only read them on a screen ? I do enjoy a good old book with actual paper instead of reading off of a screen, mind you a book has a story and is a couple of hundred pages.

    My whole point is starting a business in a field that is dying/struggling probably isn't the smartest idea. If I came on here and had a business idea for selling music CDs...I would get ripped to pieces, hopefully so to.

    A publication about shops/garages would likely be more sustainable than a general news/tech/etc. publication, due to the buyer demographic. Then again, this could also be an e-publication, in addition to a physical print. I doubt anyone I know would be open to a photographer, but I hope to see this come to fruition, regardless.
