bye bye CosmoGirl

Yep. Believe it or not, CosmoGirl is closing up shop come December. Not sure exactly why, but it is stated, "The man has gotten hold of Hearst's teen tome, CosmoGirl, and gave it a bad mean mugging, subsequently forcing the fashion magazine to shutdown". Also, numbers have been decling: "Through October, CosmoGirl had 527 ad pages, down 15.5 percent from last year. (By contrast, Seventeen had 693 pages in that period, down 8.8 percent, and Teen Vogue had 919 pages, down 5.9 percent.) Newsstand was off 18 percent in the first half of the year, to an average of 302,800, and the total circulation was 1.4 million." I remember when I used to read CosmoGirl. It was the it magazine as a pre-teen. Those with subscriptions will start to receive Seventeen magazine instead. <3
