“Welcome to the 21st century, when everything changes,” intoned Captain Jack Harkness at the beginning of each episode of “Torchwood”, the BBC sci-fi spinoff of “Doctor Who”. It rang in my mind as we made the decision to go to an all-digital format.  It was inevitable, if you think about it. Fashion Doll Quarterly was able to exist because of the online community. As collectors, we are able to reach out to doll designers, manufacturers and other collectors through social media, email and our blogs and forums. News travels faster than ever before- it has become immediate, and the pace of printing and production simply cannot keep up.

 

We have had some objections, of course. Change is hard, but necessary to grow. Many older readers do not like the idea of reading content on their computer, and some simply feel they have somehow been cheated. Do you really think after fourteen years, my goal was to steal the last $4.00 left on your one-year subscription? I have to say, it was a bit insulting after over sixty issues and four books to hear of comments like this on doll forms. If you like the magazine and have been a loyal customer, you can always air your grievance to me directly, or send us constructive criticism. But whining on doll forums to the general public is just childish and petty. We are all better than that. Content is living and ever changing, and the delivery system of the content is not as important as the information being shared. What’s more, printing is expensive and mailing costs have risen exponentially. We would have to charge $25 per issue, and reduce subscriptions to one issue per year. It simply didn’t make sense when there was a better, faster, and more efficient alternative.
