What’s Your Passion?

Rockandgem
Kate O’ is a magazine lover who just found two publications that she had no idea existed–Birds and Blooms and WildBird. In a recent blog post she talks about magazines devoted to people’s passions:

One of the things that intrigues me about magazines is that, taken as a
set, the magazines you bother to subscribe to have an awful lot to say
about who you are and what you’re passionate about. Of course, not all
of our passions have publications dedicated to them, but you might be
surprised how many do… [Magazines] seem to represent our best selves: what we, in an ideal world, would be paying attention to.

She’s right. This observation is one of the things that I also love about magazines–if you are obsessed with it, there is a magazine about it. Most assuredly. For instance, did you know that there is a magazine for scrapbookers? And a magazine about ferrets? There is also a magazine about kit planes and toy trains and pontoons and ATV riding? You like beer, don’t you? There is even a magazine devoted to rocks.

Seriously, there are so many magazines you probably don’t even know are out there, waiting for you. Go explore.
