YDR/YSN passes an anniversary. Actually, 2. Uh, make that 3.

The YDR/YSN/ydr.com just observed an anniversary of sorts this week – two months with online subcriptions.

Actually, such subscriptions – often called paywalls  – have been in place on ydr.com for more than a year. That paywall covered only part of our content – the stuff that was in print.

But we installed a taller and wider wall across all our our websites – gametimepa.com, flipsidepa.com et al –  in mid-August and have been watching results since.

We’ll  put up more about what we’re seeing in future YDR Insider posts and certainly invite your comments and questions. Let’s have a conversation.

To refresh your memory about what all this is about, please take a look at the following links:
