In my mind many of the glossy magazines are getting more and more unnecessary, as they keep writing about the same things over and over again, following the same plan and layout year after year. And of course I am bias as a blogger, but I am the only one feeling this way? However, many newer niche magazines keep developing new and inspiring content, so if you like me, thinks that the monthly glossy magazines are last century, then check out these cool magazines, which will also look great on your coffee table or bookcase.
