Printable multi-blog journals per niche?

I would like to see a weekly (or whatever) print magazine made from a simple compilation of blogs. There is more than enough content to create a high quality journal from a coalition of the best. While most of the infatuated community loves the online format just as it is, an additional audience awaits.

The contributors could be paid based on revenues, ensuring a modest profitability.

This weekly print could even be customized for the tastes of individual readers based on topics, authors, and interests. In addition to politics I am sure sports and hobbies could be accommodated- and targeted advertisements based on location and topic could tag along.

Distribution would be by mail and perhaps in airports, waiting rooms, barbershops, etc. and if you can imagine a niche of people waiting for something with similar interests, we can tailor a blog-print to catch their eye.

Anyway, why not leverage all this quality writing?


  • That is probably the best suggestion I have heard in quite some time. (Maybe because I am a blogger... but I think that even non-bloggers would like this to happen.)

  • Thanks Chirs. Lots of non-hyper surfers might like hardcopy. That the general sheet could be taylored per region/interests (articles and ads) seems powerful for the print medium. All these high quality articles, written for the short attention span... nearly free... why not sell a 24 page weekly journal for 4.95 or whatever?
