The Future of Publishing: My Opinion

I believe that the future of publishing will continue towards online venues and digital formats. Print is a great format, but it is expensive to create and hard to sell, especially when more and more people are using their computers, tablets and readers to get most of their information. Writers, publishers and editors need to keep pace with the changing technology to keep up with the market needs. Eventually, I believe that almost all written media will eventually be in digital format.
Will this mean that many magazines and papers will have to close their doors? Most certainly, but that doesn’t have to mean a loss of jobs. The publication could simply move to an online format to retain profits and readers. Those publications that realize this now instead of waiting will be the ones that are better off in the long run. Those that act first are the innovators who will reap a loyal following.

Don't be shy! Tell me what you think!
