Have we told you that we need you? We do.  As an independent, online publication, Bluestone Magazine relies on the support of paying subscribers and like-minded business supporters to survive.

We have an ongoing campaign to reach 500 paying subscribers by Sept 2015 so that we can remain viable as an independent, online, magazine for the south-west. It’s not going to be easy, but we are hoping to motivate our many readers, supporters and Facebook followers to take the leap and become a paying subscriber for just $85 a year. If you read us, please join us.
