This week one of my writing buddies, Loren Gruber, introduced me to a new term — virtual magazine. A virtual magazine is an on-line publication that differs from the “scroll down the page” or “click the link” online magazine. With a virtual magazine, you actually turn page with the click of your mouse.
I have to admit, when it comes to electronic magazines, I prefer virtual. Somehow it just gives a cleaner look. Maybe its the design limitation that comes with working page by page. Things have to be concise and tight. Maybe I’m just “old fashioned.” Who knows?
If you’ve never seen a virtual magazine, you can check out Simply Fishing — http://www.simplyfishingmagazine.com/ .
So far I haven’t found a virtual magazine for children but will keep you posted if I find something.
