Blender Magazine Folds and I Am Not That Sad About It

It’s sort of old news by now that Blender magazine shut its doors earlier this week, its April 2009 issue being its very last to see print. I just went through this very same situation with Metal Edge closing up shop – and god knows I’ve seen it happen with every other print outlet and paying website I’ve ever written for in the past ten years save for Modern Drummer – so I have a moderate degree of empathy for the writing staff and freelancers who will now have to scramble even harder for work in a field that thinks it shouldn’t have to pay writers. But not many tears will be shed for the management of Blender, because they never let me write for them anyway. Goodbye, Blender magazine, I won’t miss you.
