So one of the best benefits of the net(among many) for me is getting to buy magazines online, subscribing to a technical journal or newsletter or whatever else contributes to my repertoire.
I can consult a writer's guide, troubleshoot or tweak my pc, or get pertinent materials from sources featured.
I can buy magazines online that have everything to do with improving as a thinker, as a person, as a woman, and I can get mags that contribute to my need for much entertainment and information on popular (not political—ick) culture.
That is when I buy magazines online I know I am not limited to getting work materials, not limited to that which is technical.
Entertainment, self-help, fashion, news, and hundreds of other subject areas make for great reading (reading that you don't have to study), as does online literature and as do humor columns and articles, blogs, and other brilliant music, art, and cultural publications.
There are external benefits, too, to buying magazines online, those that prevent you from having to deal with a pushy telemarketer, or a surly, snotty-nosed brick-and-mortar store clerk.
Okay, so I extol the virtues of the ezine, of getting your maga
But I should also mention a few caveats, for those of you who are wary or who want to buy magazines online but have never done such an interaction via the net before.
Beware the “you have a pre-paid or free magazine subscription coming to your home...” and you didn't even ask for it!
The trick is you will be expected to pay a "processing fee," which, hmmm, is more than the cost of the year's subscription...that, by the way, you might never receive.
Know Your Rights: You have the right to clear and real contact info—a street address, a company name, even a real representative, and a phone number.
You have the right to a well defined list of billing policies and procedures, regarding the duration of the magazine subscription, regarding the number of issues in one subscription, regarding your cancellation rights.
After you are a subscriber: You have the right to check the expiration date (on your magazine subscription label) and the subsequent right to reject an offer to renew which is made not by the magazine but by an unrelated, unaffiliated company scamming you for extra cash.
Anyway. It's prime time on a weekday night here, so I am off to find a subscription to a good reality TV magazine, one I can get online without having to climb out of this warm and cozy bed in the warm and cozy house, which is getting pelted with the cold and dreary blizzard of winter rains. See? There’s ANOTHER bennie.
