I have a news website on a tech subject. I am at the point of publishing the digital magazine version.

I am using MS Publisher. Is it a good program to use? I thought it was and bought it but then i never saw any magazine template in it or in microsoft website. Thats why i am doubting it

After i have a digital version i am planning to put it on sites like issuu, yudu, scribd for free so people can read and i have more traffic but i will try to get advertisers. What do you thinnk of this strategy or what would you do?
