Stock Market Crash Looming?

If you're interested in the future of the US economy (and you should be if you live in the USA), you're probably wondering what happened this week on the stock market, which took a terrific dive.

All the info you need to know and how severe this crisis (yes, it is a crisis) really is can be found on my financial blog, Money Daily.

Just a hint: If you think your mortgage payments, gas prices and utility bills are too high, you're probably on the right track. The middle class is being squeezed out of existence, and like it or not, that's not a very good outcome for corporations. Check it out.

I stumbled somewhat upon a great site for magazine fans the other day, quite by accident.

With over 2,000 print magazines in their media directory, Wooden Horse Publishing is more of a site for free-lance writer's, but it makes for great reading if you have any interest in the magazine trade.

The site boasts a directory of all US and Canadian consumer and trade print publications, including:

  • Contact and publishing information

  • Editorial calendars

  • Reader demographics

  • Editorial concepts

  • Writer's guidelines

The site is a wealth of information and is quite well designed and maintained by publisher Meg Weaver, who has been a free-lancer herself, in addition to having taught article writing in classes and one-on-one, consulted with startups, redesigns and through ownership changes.

It's well worth a visit and a spot in your bookmarks.
