I am not one to be flaunting stats or anything like that around here, but this is a milestone for the magazine. In all the hustle and bustle with the email server problems last week (which are still going on), I lost track of one thing. It turns out that within the last week the Digital Web Magazine newsletter received it's 5,000th subscriber...the milestone sort of blew on by. Normally we would have had some kind of give-away like we did previously. Well, I guess we will have to wait for our 5,150th subscriber. At the rate we are going that could be right around the corner. What will the 5,150th subscriber get? I am not 100% sure yet, but perhaps some great web design books from Peachpit/New Riders and O'Reilly. Maybe some free hosting if we can swing it. Whatever it ends up being it will be well worth it. So if you haven't already please sign up.
Why 5150? Is this a VH thing?
Pretty much. I had to pick a number that was reasonable to hit within a short period of time, 6,000 is just too far down the road to have a contest for... it would have been a very long contest. Since we missed 5,000 and well, it was the first 5,000 range number I could think of ..there ya go... you can thank Eddie for that one.
Now I should unsubscribe and try my fortune of being 5150th subscriber :)
