The User Generated Magazine

Rand8 is a new concept that takes user generated content such as blog posts, flickr images etc and publishes them in a monthly print magazine.

The magazine is created by users submitting and voting for stories in a digg like environment and at the end of each month, the top content is published. It would be pretty cool to have stories from my blogs published in a magazine.

This could be used as a powerful promotion tool. Not only will visitors find you through the “digg like” submission system but if any of your content is actually published you can expect a truck load of traffic.

The mag can be bought from Barnes and Noble and Amazon! The homepage of Rand8 can be found here and you can submit content here

    Seems like they have just started out, but it’s a great concept.

    What they are missing is any mention of a revenue sharing program. And even then, some might prefer to keep their content on their own blog.

    Not everything is about money! I think it would just be cool enough to have your content forever immortalized in a magazine.
