Happy 4th birthday SoGlos.com My, how time flies when you’re having fun! Yes, believe it or not, it was a whopping four years ago this week that independent online magazine SoGlos.com officially launched.

Back in 2007, SoGlos.com quickly garnered attention as one of the UK’s first and only regional online magazines run by journalists. That commitment to the highest quality editorial standards has served the online magazine well – now, long recognised as Gloucestershire’s No.1, and most influential, guide to arts, entertainment and leisure.

The last 12 months have seen SoGlos.com’s popularity continue to climb, with monthly reader numbers at more than 76,000 and email newsletter subscribers just tipping 17,500.

We’ve also unveiled a series of improvements, from embracing the most popular social media sharing tools to implementing Google Custom Site Search functionality.

And who can forget SoGlos.com’s YouTube channel topping 5 million views… cementing its position as one of the most popular channels across the whole south west region. Plus SoGlos.com being highly commended in the prestigious 2011 South West Media Awards.

We’d like to express our sincerest thanks to SoGlos.com’s readers and advertisers for helping make the online magazine the success it is today, and are delighted to announce that our most exciting new developments yet will be unveiled before we celebrate our fifth birthday. Watch this space… and don’t be shy about sending us cakes!
