When we started Bluestone Magazine we set ourselves a goal: 200 paying subscribers within a year, to see if people really did support the idea of another “voice” in their community. We are almost there – 181 paying subscribers, with only 19 to go before Sept 2 (the date Bluestone was born). People love what we do – they tell us this all the time – but we need to turn all of that love into paying supporters or it becomes very hard to keep going. The internet is ‘free’, but providing great content is, unfortunately, not. So if you support Bluestone and have been meaning to subscribe, please do so and help us to reach our first goal of 200 by Sept 2. You can make a donation of your choice or become a paying supporter here.
