Newspaper and Magazine Subscriptions

Have you ever wondered why when you subscribe to a newspaper or magazine that it takes up to six to eight weeks for the first issue to arrive on your front door? And why all the magazines that are currently for sale are labeled a month in advance? Like it would be the September issue but it's actually August? Because I've been wondering the same thing! I'm sure that those who work in the publishing industry, specifically in customer service, get these questions posed to them all the time.

As far as the delay with the magazine to arrive on your front door steps goes, I supposed it's a logistical thing where the first issue takes some time to get printed and distributed from some warehouse only because it's the most economical and profitable way for the publisher to operate. I supposed that it's also a revenue trick that publishers don't tell you about because they understand that the longer a subscriber waits for the first issue, the more likely they will go out and buy the magazine or newspaper at full retail value. And no one in their right mind buys magazines or newspapers that way on a daily basis.

Anyway, I'm feeling very anxious for my first issue of the Wall Street Journal, Barron's, Economist, and Variety to arrive on my front door and that's why I'm writing this post. If you happen to be reading this post and work in the publishing industry and would like to answer my questions please feel free to comment. Otherwise, I'll just wait patiently for my home delivery of the the said subscriptions and although I'm somewhat curious I will not bother asking customer service. After all it's not really that important only because I work in customer service and I know these types of questions are not pressing. But that's entirely a different post so thank you for reading and have a great day!

University of Cincinnati Master of Science Degree Diploma

It's official! Today, I received my diploma from the University of Cincinnati. I can't express how happy and proud I am of my Master of Science degree. I told my mom, my aunt, my dad and basically everyone on my social media. I even tweeted my diploma photo to Santa Ono, the President of the University of Cincinnati, and even got a congratulatory reply from him and the official UC Twitter account. So it's been an awesome Saturday.

Here is a pic of my University of Cincinnati diploma.



Holiday Tradition

The holidays are just around the corner. It's the best time of the year for sure. But the holidays can go by really quickly. I mean, it's going to be Halloween on Monday already! Pretty soon Thanksgiving will be here and we'll all be eating Turkey with our families. Then just like that we'll be opening up presents on Christmas and ringing in 2017 on New Year's.

Some families have holiday traditions. I want to start a holiday tradition where we help out the less fortunate. Everyday is a struggle for each one of us but at least we have food on our tables and a roof over our heads. There are just way too many people on the streets hungry and freezing. We shouldn't let this go on. Not on our watch.

With the power of the internet we can achieve so much in so little time. We can use this power to help others. We don't even have to spend our own money. Did you know that there are free donation sites out there right now that you can visit everyday and donate for fr…
