Can Kobold Quarterly keep up being Dragon Magazine, while Pathfinder acts like Dungeon Magazine?

So far, Kobold Quarterly has proven it self to be the new Dragon Magazine, while Pathfinder has proven itself to be the Dungeon Magazine of the time.  With all this goodness going on, I still worry if Kobold Quarterly will be able to keep up the production quality that so many are used to if it goes from quarterly to a monthly product.  The quarterly nature of Kobold Quarterly directly affects the amount of cash flow the magazine can make and as a long term goal making it a monthly book only seem logical.  Plus you have other project like Paizo Fans United Wayfinder that could grow stronger and stronger focusing on harness the power of crowdsourcing to go from a small twice a year book to a very good six times a year.  Better yet will something else disrupt the concept of print magazines with some new device or system?  Only time will tell.  Talk to you later...
