It Turns Out the Gelatto Business Is Not Like Publishing …

If you are waiting to hear back from that freelancer for Shine magazine, don’t bother. It has folded after a single issue. Better start pitching 5280 again, or, if you’re feeling lucky, the trendy new Denver Magazine. And for those bettors out there, Denver PR Blog has set the over/under on Denver Magazine at six issues.

I say ‘under’. How many ways can these local lifestyle pubs repackage a salon in CC North or schlep the do-gooding of their favorite bold-face name?

On the flip side, these mags do keep the flacks in the green–even if they put the ol’ cowtown to sleep.
