MLive.com reviewed Michigan Blue magazine:
- Calling itself "Michigan's Lakestyle Magazine", it's really quite a high-end publication for such a working-class state. But Editor Lisa Jensen and her crew do excellent work in putting this magazine together, and with the caliber of writers she has, I can see this one lasting for some time to come.
If states had state liquids, Michigan's would be water—it's home to the Great Lakes, 36,000 miles of rivers and streams, and 11,000 inland lakes. Michigan Blue Magazine provides a perfect guide to life by all this water, focusing on lakefront homes, watersports, and environmental issues, such as what to do when your lake goes into hibernation. And that's just one of Gemini Publications' many publications, all of which cover a different facet of modern life in Michigan. Grand Rapids Magazine for instance, focuses on everything from fine dining to style in its namesake city, whereas Grand Rapids Business Journal boasts informative columns, profiles of local business people, a business calendar of events, and more.
