When I first heard that some crazy people were going to start a print magazine about Paleo I just, well, I just… Let’s put it that way.
Aren’t we in the Internet age, with content increasingly going to digital form and things in print increasingly the way of the dinosaur? That’s what I assumed, anyway. But then at the Ancestral Health Symposium last month, the publishers approached me and handed me a nice glossy edition of the magazine, asking if I might have a look.
I did, and while I like the convenience of the digital age and in particular, having as many magazines or books as you want right at your fingertips via iPad or a similar device, there’s really something about flipping pages, the glossy look and feel, the ability to have the latest and even back issues sitting on your bureau or coffee table and of course, the ease at which you can pass them off to friends and family when you’re done with them. Or, you can leave an issue in your doctor or dentist’s office on one of those very rare visits.
Another advantage is that these will be showing up on newsstands in various places, so people will be introduced to Paleo via a completely new route.
Call me sold. I’ve subscribed myself and I’d encourage you to do so if you don’t win yours for free. Yes, I’ve arranged with the publishers to give away a free one-year subscription and I’ll do so by random drawing from the list of commenters.
Here are the rulz:
- Enter as many times as you like. Each comment is a separate entry.
- To enter once, just post a comment that says “enter me,” or something like that. Saying, “and please let me win” is entirely optional.
- To enter as many times as you like, open up a topic of your choosing on anything related to Paleo/Primal and make it interesting enough that a discussion gets going and you and others end up posting multiple comments. Alternatively, participate in a discussion topic or more that others have initiated. The more you contribute, the greater your chance to win, and you may learn and teach in the whole process.
- Be fair and mature about it. That means, enter once and be done with it or, make your multiple comments substantive.
- I reserve the right to delete comments (entries) that I subjectively deem as not in keeping with rule #4.
I will close comments in about 48 hours, which is around noon, PDT, Monday, September 26.
Update: Comments are now closed, with a total of 182 entries. I will announce the winner soon. …Here we go:
The 62nd comment by date and time was this one, by Myer. Thanks everyone for participating and I hope some or a lot of you go ahead and subscribe anyway.
