Weekly Geeks: Magazines

This week’s Weekly Geeks theme is to talk about the magazines we read. In order to get you started, I prepared a little magazines meme, but feel free to take it further if you want. I also think it’d be great if you displayed images of the covers of your favorite magazines.

For each magazine you want to talk about, here are a few questions. Answer as many or as few as you want.

1. Name of magazine.
2. Do you subscribe or just buy it now and then?
3. What’s your favorite regular feature in the magazine?
4. What do you think your interest in this magazine says about you?
5. How long have you been reading this magazine?
6. Is there any unique or quirky aspect to the magazine that keeps you reading?

Scrapbooks, Etc. I've started getting this one in the mail again after my brief hissy-fit. They later emailed me that their website wasn't working. At least, they did get back to me. I used to scrapbook much more than I do now but I still love getting this one. The layouts are so inspiring and I love the cut out section in the back. I've been a subscriber for about 3 years now. What does it say about me? I love to document my family's life. The majority of what I scrapbook is my girl. She's so photogenic ;)

Martha Stewart Living I'm a big Martha fan. However, I let this magazine subscription lapse. I just wasn't getting as much out of it as I used to and it's 60% ads, I'm sure. I'll still pick it up once in awhile from the store though. The photography is awesome and I've always enjoyed the 'Good Things'. I was a subscriber since 2000 until recently. What does it say about me? I'm a perfectionist and a neat-freak so Martha's fussiness appeals to me.

Everyday Food I usually pick this one up at the supermarket if a few recipes catch my attention. Compared to Living the recipes are fairly straight forward and have few ingredients. I love the shopping lists, the One Bag= One Week feature and the "Have you tried....". What does this say about me? I live under the dream that someday I will become a good cook. This magazine gives hope.

I'll also pick up the occasional craft or women's magazine (not Cosmo though. How many orgasm articles can they write?) It really depends on how much the magazine is.


  1. I have never opened a Martha mag only because my mil just can't stand her - so I guess it's out of loyalty to her. I do find Martha to be amazingly creative and industrious.

  2. I used to love scrapbooking but haven't gotten around to doing it in a couple of years now. I keep meaning to get back into it, but there's always something else I end up doing instead.

  3. One of these days, I've to try scrapbooking! ;P

  4. I like Martha too, but it's true what you say about ads!

    And I agree with what you say about Cosmo - seriously very issue is the same nowadays!

  5. I love scrapbooking magazines even though I don't scrapbook. I just love seeing all the ads for cool crafty things :)

  6. Personally not a Martha fan, but I love scrapbooking. I occasionally get the magazines, but the layouts are always so elaborate, I just can't really copy them because I want to get my scrapbooks done eventually :-). It does make me want to learn about digital scrapbooking.
