Blogger & Podcaster Magazine: Read the first issue online

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket Blogger & Podcaster is a new magazine founded and published by Larry Genkin, president of Larstan Business Reports. Genkin was recently interviewed by Joe Wikert, an executive at Wiley, about his new publication. He says Blogger & Podcaster is the first magazine to be published simultaneously in print, digital and podcast formats.

From the About page on the Blogger and Podcaster blog:

Blogger & Podcaster Magazine is the industry’s first full-fledged trade magazine. Our mission is very simple: Provide producers with information they can use to build better blogs and podcasts, and get rich and famous doing it. Each month, our editorial team and A-list contributors provide news, analysis, profiles and advice that today’s aspiring new media titans can readily implement in their businesses.

The focus of the magazine will be on strategies for monetizing and promoting blogs and podcasts. It will also contain feature articles, reviews of new blogging and podcasting technologies, and interviews. The first issue contains an interview with Robert Scoble. There will be monthly polls in which readers can vote for their favourite blogs and podcasts, and the magazine will also run a monthly competition; the prize for April’s competition is a set of podcasting equipment.

A subscription to the print edition of Blogger & Podcaster costs $79 in the U. S. or $99 elsewhere, but you can subscribe to the electronic edition for free. The first issue is available now, and can be read online by clicking on the image of the cover at the magazine’s website.
