Our reviewers

Posted by Guy Pringle, 21st December 2011

Even in this crazy run up to Christmas, when we all have more to do than is good for us it's incredible how supportive our reviewers are.

 

Alison has just put out a quick question in her weekly newsletter asking, How worthwhile is our index in the magazine of reviews added to the website? And back have flooded the comments – busy people taking the time to tell us what they think. How marvellous is that!

 

Interestingly, the consensus appears to be roughly split down the middle so for the moment we’ll continue as we are but if space is tight for something that we want to squeeze in then there’s a page we could pinch.

 

So it only remains to wish all our readers – reviewers or otherwise – the very, very best for Christmas and the New Year. Thank you for all your support and we look forward to providing  - much – more of the same in 2012!

Yours,

Guy
