|It's been a while since we have indulged in some introspection here, so this week we can let you know that you are sharing this newsletter with almost 65,000 others - a jump of more than 400 since January.
The big jumps, however, are in visits to our website.
Last month, we attracted 604,000 visits, which was a huge leap from the 507,000 in February.
The site enjoyed more than 16.5 million page views and over 25 million hits last month.
Interestingly, our visitors are either reading faster or learning their way around the site, as the average time fell slightly from just over 30 minutes in February to 27 minutes in March.
