Our new format seems to have been well received and certainly came at a good time. Our latest reader stats, compiled just before the relaunch, were just short of 50,000 - and that was after a significant database clean-up in which we dumped a large number of inactive subscriptions. The next few weeks will yield even more valuable reader information with the newsletter now in its online format which requires readers to actually enter the website. Previously, they could read it in their browsers. And in the weeks ahead, you’ll be able to access it more efficiently through a range of other mobile devices, which should see another spike in subscriptions.
