The first issue turned out really nice. This could easily pass as a magazine you'd find on a news stand. Awesome stuff.

All this needs is an advertising department with an ad salesman or two, a printing contractor, a distributor and you're all set. You could make this your full time job.

Every magazine you see in a store or news stand, along with newspapers and even local television networks, get almost 100% of their revenue from advertising. If you use the industry standard "80-20" rule (80% advertising, 20% content) and get some serious paid advertising, you could sell these printed magazines for whatever price you wanted, even free. Cover price is just a formality anymore.

Look at any high-volume magazine; People, Esquire, Maxim, Car and Driver, Vogue, Popular Science, Reader's Digest, Good Housekeeping, EGM, even that Gamestop garbage magazine Game Informer, you will see they all have roughly the same ad-content ratio. And they all make money.

I think all of us would be incredibly happy if we could actually make this our full time jobs and make a living off of this, but I am not sure if our chances are that good. It's nice to hope though.
