Fully agree. Most of the print publications I've written for in the last ten years have been sold, had their print version axed, or closed up shop entirely. Nothing but well wishes and hope for TSJ to stay around for future generations to come.
"I get how LongBoard mag. failed." - This is how it failed, drunk publisher/owner that borrowed and borrowed and never paid back. Ugly scene.
You got any info on what happened to SLIDE ?
What kind of circulation do you think it had? I even forget who they had for advertisers.
Never checked out a copy of Pacific Longboarder. Minimal relevance.
Just curious if you don't mind me asking -- how did you go about asking for your compensation? Was it part of your pitch, or did they just specify that they will pay you X amount for an article? I wrote a few pieces for a magazine a while back -- I got paid for the first one, but there was a change in editors for the following two articles, so there was no dinero involved. I enjoyed writing, seeing my stuff in print, and getting some really nice social media feedback... but what the heck.
They have a price that is a per word situation. I didn’t ask for it, rather they stated that is how they run it.
I asked to receive no compensation and instead be allowed to create an ad. The denied that saying they are not accepting any more advertising.
My Surf a Pig piece for slide was compensated with an ad. Gene shot a picture of a Blackboard on this suclupture of a hand. We ran that as a Surf a Pig ad.
As Veterano said, no money in it. I did it for the ego. I’m guessing all do it for that. Otherwise, they do it for coin. If anyone admits they do it for the coin, that’s just nuts. It be like saying you shape surfboards for the coin.
Thanks, perfect. Definitely right about the money - I enjoyed doing it even pro bono (or pro ego?) but my thought was more that if you're doing it for free, people expect more from you, if that makes sense.
