By

As many proponents of the magazine industry say, it’s not about paper, it’s about communities of interest. In many areas, those communities of interest—and many advertisers—are heading online to get their information and inspiration, so, with pressure on paid-for circulation, it’s becoming more important for these titles to have a quality online presence.
