We all have our periodicals that we subscribe to, and while differences of opinion abound about which ones are the “best” ones out there, there is always good content available. One that I subscribe to is “Rangefinder Magazine”, which has great reads on up and coming artists, good food for thought, and other items of interest on a regular basis. Their most recent issue (April 2010), had an article that also boils down well for blog posting, so today, a nod goes out to Rangefinder magazine, particularly Alice B. Miller for the article:
Here she looks at things to do and not to do when trying to stay current in the ever-demanding world of “publish or perish” in periodicals and online print circles. The entire article I would classify as a “must read”, but for here, the bullet points suffice. Enjoy!
- Stay Current on World Events
- Pursue Your Own Projects
- Don’t become a prisoner of your style
- Look the Other Way
- Let the Freedom Begin
- Stay Positive in Slow TImes
- Stay Fresh, New, Vital
- Shake off the Doldrums
- Focus on Stories Close to You
- Learn How Editors Want Material Submitted
- Be Interactive and Engaging With Clients
- Plan Ahead
As you can tell, there’s more here than just the bullet points, and thankfully, Rangefinder also keeps current issues available online for easy viewing, so head on over there to enjoy the full length article. Surely though, there’s more content out there that others know about too, so feel free to share links to either your own work, or other articles of interest in the comments. What magazines do you like? Any particularly useful articles? Sound off to spread the word! Thanks for stopping in and we’ll see you back here again tomorrow!
