It was in November 2015 that we launched the #SatTOYday newsletter, an online magazine that summarised the key news from our website.
You may have noticed a significant lack of #SatTOYday news over the past couple of months, with our last issue published after Toy Fair 2019. There are several reasons for this, but the main one is changes made to our online magazine publisher Issuu. When we first signed up they were a free platform assuming we didnt charge for our magazine. Over the years theyve moved various functions to a premium paid for account. The final stage of that has now happened and removes our ability to embed or share our magazine outside of the Issuu format.
Coupled with the intense workload getting the magazine together every couple of weeks we are now left with a difficult decision to either pay for a premium account or look for other options, including retiring #SatTOyday all together.
As you know we have a couple of dedicated site supporters, but in the main I fund the whole thing myself including all the figures I review. Adding a new subscription into this is not viable at this time.
And when we consider 90% of our readership was via the Issuu platform, moving to a less user friendly PDF format or similar might not work.
We'd love to hear your thoughts? Is a regular summary of the news something you want as a reader - or are you happy using the Blog function to catch up on the key action figure news.
