CosmoGIRL Magazine is folding after almost a decade of informing teenage girls about fashion, style, beauty and life issues. Out of all the teen magazines that I read when I was a teen, CosmoGIRL was my favorite. It had the perfect mix of beauty tips, fashion trends as well as stories about real teenage girls, advice colums with questions I often thought (but never asked) and news that was mandatory for teenage girls to know. I am sad to see it go. I worked for them as a stringer and was hoping to intern for them in a couple years.  A New York Times article reports, “These younger teen-oriented books have been slowly dying off,” said Carolyn Dubi, director of print at Initiative, the agency that handles media planning for clients including Dr Pepper. Teenagers, she said, are either going to the Web, or “they’re turning toward books that are not so teen-oriented, so they’ll turn to a Cosmopolitan or a Glamour or a Vogue.” . Its website, CosmoGIRL.com, will still available after its last issues hits new-stands in December.
