…instead of proclaiming either print or digital dead, think of them as just two allies in that bigger battle of acquiring and retaining readers. It’s not a simple, binary issue of alive-or-dead, one-or-the-other. One medium shouldn’t be sacrificed for another because they both have something the other doesn’t. Just choose what you like, and try it out, or try both. If they say it’s dead, ignore them. Trends are cyclical, anyway.

I’m quite tired of the print-only/digital-only game. Use what you want, when and how you want. And the usual publishing rules abroad don’t always apply in the Philippines. Keep that in mind. 😉
