I think what happens is that you get tired reading the same stuff over and over…common with any of them. I also subscribed to several hunting/shooting magazines and ran into the same. stuff. Now, if you’ve just started woodworking (or any other hobby) they would have what is new/fresh info (maybe). To be honest, some of them are so bad, I wouldn’t subscribe if it was free (in my case, that would be WWJ). But last year I was getting probably 5, and I’ve let all of them but one expire, and recently I re-subscribed to one of them. Even the “shop tips” start getting repeated after you’ve subscribed for a few years. The projects sometimes look like they one the published last year, made with a different wood. Now, if I get a killer deal I’ll pick it up…otherwise, I’ll set back a few years and wait.
