The Number of Magazines Rises!

| 2 Comments

We reported two years ago that the number of magazines was on a steep decline, except for the specialty areas below that had their best year ever in 2003:

Survival & Weapons*
Baking*
Laundry, Cleaning & Dyeing*
Bride*
Produce*
Health*
Guns & Firearms*

Since then, the number of magazines plunged from 23,990 in 2003 to 21,266 in 2004, but rose to 22,054 in 2005.

The categories with the best years ever (along with a long track record) are different from previous years, though not unexpected, I guess:


Sanitation
Purchasing
Industrial Relations/HR
Funeral Service

Deaf

Paint
Track & Field
Dogs
Horses
Golf
Military & Naval
Interior Design & Decoration

I see some connection to the boom in home remodeling, and military and naval to our war situation, but dog and horse magazines?

The increase in number of titles of dog magazines published relates to two phenomena. One is special interest magazines for upscale, travel and city specific markets. The other is one publisher which has a line of very similar magazines which are breed specific. A poodle magazine, a Jack Russell terrier magazine, a guldurn retriever magazine, even a mutt magazine. They also produce a ferret magazine, and "critter" (exotic pet species) magazine.

Hey Guys!!All the best magazines are available at my favorite shopping site Couponalbum.com with lots of discounted offers, coupons and coupon codes on all categories including magazines from many brand name stores......!!
