Writers Having To Transition From Print To Web

Content is changing. With many print publications folding left and right, we as a society no longer go to the print world to inform us with the latest news, gossip, fashion or other information. In the past 2 to 3 years, there have been quite a few print magazines that have closed. In fact, there were some that were favorites among consumers such as CosmoGirl, King Magazine, Quick and Simple, Giant, Domino, Vibe, Gourmet, Fortune Small Business and Giant. This seems to be a trend that is continuing with no end in site. As online content on the Internet grows, the sales of popular consumer magazines seem to go do down. Many print editors built their careers on believing that their favorite magazine or newspaper would always be around for them, but this no longer seems to be the case. The web has revolutionized the way we read and find our information.

If you are one of those print editors that find themselves having to revamp your resume and think differently about your career, where do you start? Also, if you are open to change, how do you make yourself marketable when you have spent so many years in the print world? Keep in mind, there are still many reputable magazines still in print but could be the perfect time to add to your skills so that when the change comes, you will be ready. How do you make that transition from print to the web?
