why I like magazines; one reason

Today I was on my way to an article about something in one of the writing magazines I read. I forget which article I was paging through the publication for - and that is irrelevant to my point.

I came across a nice little article about three different forms of poetry. Fascinating! And it gave me a couple new forms to play with.

As I was making note of the types, I realized that is one benefit of a magazine. There is varied content within its pages - usually - and that is one attraction. Different writers and some variation in viewpoint. And, once in a while, on the way to the thing that made you pick up that magazine and put down some cash to take it home, you find an unexpected treasure tucked within the pages. A bonus of information.
