Blueprint website up (more or less)

May 1, the official launch/newsstand date for Blueprint, the new non-Martha Martha Stewart mag, is fast approaching. Website content finally went up today. Some cute stuff - here's the contents page, which gives you a good idea of what we'll actually see in the magazine. I think I'm really going to like it; I've got a subscription already, so I'll just see as we go. Just waaaaaaaaiiiiiting for the first issue to arrive up here in the Great White North.

The one irritating thing (to me) about this Blueprint mini-page is the Flash thingy on the left that, after the animation plays, turns into the menu. But, personally, I hate Flash. Offhand, I can't think of one really good use of it. And it's overused so much, it just really irritates me. It's on my list of irrational dislikes, that's all there is to it.

Just went down and checked the mailbox. No mag yet. Ugh. You know if I see this in the store before I get my copy, I will probably grab it . . . I can always resell it on eBay, or send it to my sister (that's probably a better idea - she'd enjoy it and I doubt she'd buy it in the first place). I'll just be wondering . . . I was looking at the May issue of Living itself over the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it, more than some recent previous issues. But this seems more "targeted" to girls like, well, me. Which will I like better? Will it vary? Will it depend on the month and the features? Like I said, we'll just see.
