For more than three decades I labored in the traditional publishing world and eked out a living publishing traditional magazines.

I loved what I was doing, but I spent countless hours cutting corners to make ends meet. Printing costs kept going up and my battles with the postal service never seemed to end. 

As I reached retirement age, I was glad the end was in sight.    OnlineMagazinePublisher1B

But I knew I would miss the satisfaction and prestige that went with the job.  

Being a magazine publisher meant I was somebody to be admired, an expert in my field.

Finally, however, I closed the doors to my business and tried to enjoy my early retirement.

I played golf religiously. But it did not inspire me as my magazines had done.

I wanted to get back in the game: the game of publishing. But at my age?

Then I discovered the Internet!

What an awakening to learn that others (with little or no publishing experience) were making huge sums of money with online magazines.

At first, I was confused by the technical jargon. But then I realized the process was no different from what I had done before. Except for one BIG difference …

What now?

I guess after 40 years of writing, editing, and meeting deadlines I’ve retired my mind (as well as my body) for a spell. But I haven’t been completely idle.

Both Yesterday’s Magazette and Writer’s Magazette are still online and being updated regularly. I’m especially looking forward to 2013 when YM will launch its 40th anniversary issue. So send me your personal essays for this final keepsake issue. I always enjoy reading about your life experiences.

Writer’s Magazette could use a few more articles and answers to our “10 Questions” for today’s writers. This is a great way to publicize yourself.

I always enjoy hearing from friends like you.

My book site is still www.epburke.com. I’ve added a few new items and am currently working on two new novels. Hope to have both finished by the early part of 2013.

So I guess I am not as idle as I think I am. Perhaps I have finally stepped off the fast-paced treadmill of life and am now enjoying a leisurely walk, taking in the scenery, and doing whatever pleases me the most. I hope you are doing the same.

Well, that’s it for now.

Take care, and, as always, remember to be kind to one another.

(Sadly, a behavior that some of our current politicians have yet to master.)

There is a saying that a free press belongs to the one who owns a printing press. Likewise, it is easier to see your byline in print if you own your own publication. And, today, it is not as hard as you may think.

On the Internet, it is very possible to gain respect and make money by becoming an online magazine publisher. And the best way to do this is by starting your own online magazine.

*For more information, check out: http://www.onlinemagazinepublisher.com

In a nutshell, you set up a web site for your magazine and then alert your subscribers when a new issue goes live on the Internet.

As an online magazine publisher, not only can you easily achieve the benefits a conventional magazine publisher enjoys without having to chop down several trees in the process, you can easily and conveniently spread your writing influence and expertise to your base of subscribers as well as the entire world.

You do not have to invest in expensive printing equipment to run your magazine publication, resulting in a lot of time, money and effort saved.

If you do not have the imagination to create a product for sale, then publishing your own online magazine can be one of the wisest decisions you will ever make, given the benefits of impressive marketing power and influence it can offer you, as well as the opportunity to show off your writing talent.

There are many advantages to publishing an online magazine. The most obvious reason is that it is so easy to start one that any individual can do it.

*Check out these online magazines:



You can do this from the comfort of your home and all you need to get started is a computer, a web site, and an auto responder equipped with broadcast features. Auto responders such as GetResponse.com and aWeber.com are very popular, but I prefer VerticalResponse.com because you don’t need to pay a monthly fee, if you don’t want to. You can simply pay as you go, which is a good feature when you are first starting to collect subscribers.

In spite of the low start up costs, you can make money from several profit centers within the spaces of your online magazine issues. You can make money from selling advertising space, just to name one.

Most importantly, you get to build your own personal media and spread your influence, making you more valuable to other editors and publishers. If you decide to write a book, your online magazine will be a perfect vehicle to promote your work. And having your own magazine sure helps get your foot in the door of big name publishers.

When choosing a topic for your online magazine, you must consider some important success factors that can determine the flow and goal of your magazine.

You should write non-time sensitive contents such as short tips, mini stories, personal essays, advice articles, or interviews. Doing so enables you to create content in advance so that you can conveniently dispense it to your subscribers at a later schedule.

Topic-wise, you will do well to cater to a starving market that will always want the kind of content you offer. And by this, I mean that you should zero in on a demand that has been, is, and will always be there.

Relationships and dating are niches that have been on earth long before the World Wide Web came up, for example. The food niche will always be there as long as there are chefs cooking for anyone with a stomach to fill.

Having said that, you also want to have a steady stream of products or services of your own or from an affiliate that you can sell to your mailing list and make even more money.

This is just another reason why the online magazine niche will remain one of the hottest niches there is, as information on products and services or quality entertainment never goes out of style.

Best of luck with your future magazines!
