In celebration of the first birthday on June 4 2013 of The Sofia Globe, the daily news and features website covering Bulgaria and the world, our website has a fresh new look.
With refinements designed to be easy on the eye and to emphasise our most popular items of coverage, sofiaglobe.com is ready for the next phase of its development after a successful first year.
After torrents of breaking news that helped build our readership rapidly, along with our special brand of insight, The Sofia Globe now has an archive of close to 3000 stories online and a growing host of subscribers to our free daily bulletin, along with our Twitter followers and Facebook friends.
Special thanks must go to all our advertisers – Allied Pickfords, Cleves, the Hilton and the Radisson – who have supported us so loyally in our first year and we look forward to new ones joining their ranks.
Special thanks too to those who have done so much to make the website what it is and who have worked so well with Sofia Globe Media Ltd – Vlado at Shtrak, Superhosting, Koos and the Webfactory team, and Kreston Bulmar. Very special thanks too to others who have done so much to help – Rene Beekman, Nelly Lozanova and Tsveta Yotsova.
We also must pay tribute to our friends elsewhere in the media world in this neighbourhood: Trust Global Radio, the Independent Balkan News Agency, the Prague Post, the Budapest Times, the Warsaw Voice, the Slovak Spectator, the Kyiv Post and the In Your Pocket team in Sofia.
And an especial thanks to our families and loved ones for their unstinting patience, wonderful support and understanding in the exceedingly long, long days, nights, weeks and months that we have spent on The Sofia Globe in its first year.
We look forward to the coming years, upholding as ever, as we have done from day one, the independence and professionalism underlined in The Sofia Globe’s Editorial Charter.
