Gritty and Simple: The NY Times’ David Carr does a round-up of new developments in the women’s magazine arena. One article focuses on the “real life, real issues” approach of a new magazine next spring from Hearst and Disney, Lifetime Magazine (as in the TV network). The same “real women” approach is also being explored by Meredith’s Ladies Home Journal. (Can G+J be far behind in this gritty trend?)
I suggest all four of these magazines merge into one magazine called, Real Chic & Simple Lifetime.
