Welcome! This week our roundup of interesting and noteworthy media and publishing industry stories focuses on how slow load times are impacting publishers' mobile success, a survey highlighting what's hot and what's not among publishers this year, Hearst's launch of GoodHousekeeping.TV, the 19th century listicle, and more.
Publishers' mobile success depends on how fast their sites load, and with myriad elements on their pages, speed is a challenge, according to one report, noting that's part of Facebook's pitch to let it host their content directly on its platform.

Digital growth and mobile are indeed top priorities for an overwhelming majority of publishers, a survey at a recent INMA conference found. Falling off their radar is paywall development, consumer-paid content, e-commerce, and digital alternative revenue streams.

GoodHousekeeping.TV, a digital video channel offering how-to classes on cooking, crafts, and other DIY projects, was launched by Hearst Digital Studios and Good Housekeeping. The 30- to 180-minute classes provide step-by-step demonstrations, priced from $2.99 to $5.99 per class.

19th century newspapers looked very much like what you find on the Internet today, according to Northeastern University professor Ryan Cordell. He points out that publications of the day "were more aggregators than producers of original content" and often relied on lists of facts to fill their pages, much like the BuzzFeeds of today.
