1.0 out of 5 stars Please bring back the old Southern Living! May 20, 2011
Subscription Term Name:1 year auto-renewal
Like others, even though I don't live in the South. I have been a subscriber for over 30 years. What they have done to this magazine is a travesty. The things that made Southern Living special (and why so many of us saved old issues) are all gone. The articles are interchangable with the articles in any of a dozen other magazines. For all I know, the articles are written by a bunch of folks in NYC who have never set foot south of the Mason-Dixon line!

1.0 out of 5 stars Great in the 1970s, Garbage Today June 30, 2010
By Matt
Subscription Term Name:1 year
Having grown up in the heart of Dixie, I've read this magazine all my life, and I preceded its birth by over 10 years. Still have the entire 1974 year down in the ol' homestead (an ultramodern 1970s brick house) in an old cardboard slipcase. It was a wonderful magazine in the 1970s and even into the early 1980s. Today, it is pure garbage. Do not waste your money on a subscription. If you buy one issue, you'll have all the advertising you need, but you'll actually get better advertising of Southern lifestyles by picking up free flyers at various interstate welcome stations. In fact, Southern Living now resembles a magazine comprising interstate brochure writing sandwiched between so many advertisements you cannot make sense of the editorial. I know what I'm talking about. Since it was purchased more than a decade ago by Time-Life, Southern Living has gone steadily downhill. If you want a gardening magazing for the south, choose Garden Gate or Fine Gardening. Or buy books. It's cheaper. If you need travel information, use the internet. If you want home design, forget it. In the 1970s you had houseplans, beautiful landscape designs and decorating ideas. Today, you can get better ideas from a standard like Good Housekeeping or by watching home and garden shows on television. It's really sad how pathetic Southern Living is. If I were employed there as a writer -- and it is not my niche by any means, professional corporate writing is -- I would be a lifeless card-punching automaton regurgitating segment marketing pap. Pulp. Garbage. You can't even wrap a decent mullet with this piece of garbage, they've shrunk the page size.

2.0 out of 5 stars No Improvement Needed October 26, 2009
Subscription Term Name:2 years
Having been a subscriber for 14 years I can only say that the new changes are not for the better. New subscribers will never know what they have missed.....but us old timers have lost faith. Who said Southern Living needed to be changed? Shame on those who took a delightful magazine from wonderful to wanting. You should have asked the readers.........we would have shared our positive thoughts with you before you took this "improved?" approach.

2.0 out of 5 stars Southern Living Yankee Takeover November 28, 2012
Subscription Term Name:1 year auto-renewal|Verified Purchase
Southern Living is (or was) an institution in the south. Real southerners know that the magazine as it appears today does not refect its wonderful heritage and is the product of a magazine takeover. When you look at the December issue are are advised that red Christmas decor is so "yesterday" and hum-drum, there is your clue that the fashionistas and their cooler-than-thou staffers have taken it down a very different path. Yes, there are some fun and fresh elements that I can appreciate as a 30-something female; Yet, the magazine lacks the soul and genuine southern vibe that it once had. When every other article uses the word "southern" in the title in an effort to convince us dolts that this is what "real" southerners should do, you know that the writers are desperately trying to seem like they are heart-of-Dixie folk. It kind of reminds me of the person who tells everyone how humble they are...

So, if you're a transplant living in the south, you may think this is very southern. If you are 25 and looking for a lifestyle magazine with some cutesy southern details, this may do for you as well. But if you were born in the south, love southern elegance and don't wish to be tutored in the ways of hipster thinking, then I would take a pass on this magazine.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sad to see what has happened to Southern Living May 2, 2010
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I'm assuming the changes in Southern Living happened because of the state of the magazine industry, but it's such a shame. SL use to be one of the best. I don't live in the South, but really enjoyed the great articles, travel stories, unique recipes, decorating ideas and beautiful photos. Also liked the fact that the magazine carried its share of ads, but I didn't feel like I was paying for a book of advertising with few articles, the way I do with many magazines.

Now, all that is gone. I don't really even recognize the magazine anymore. Ridiculously short articles with little content, recipes that I've seen a zillion times, nothing really inventive or even fresh, just recycled, watered-down content. The cover photos are the only thing that is as lovely as ever. SL now looks like every other magazine on the stand, even worse than many. Why in the world? Is this what it takes to get readers and advertisers? I can't imagine. I'm hoping that SL doesn't go under, but cannot imagine that this change will help it stay afloat. Sad that it already seems to be gone. Very unfortunate.

I've been a subscriber for years, but am considering dropping my subscription. Southern Living has moved out of the reality realm for the average reader. I enjoyed the magazine when I could find practical ideas for enhancing my home, garden and kitchen. Recommendations today include expensive makeup and clothing - $35 lipstick and $500 shoes! The editors need to look to the past.

Amazon's Magazine Renewal Scam
You are correct. My existing subscription to Readers Digest was expiring in April 2016. So I began to shop for a renewal quote and Amazon indicated at the time I placed my renewal in April of 2016 that I would receive a additional year to my renewal subscription if I ordered thru Amazon.
