Although we are at the end of the year, my thoughts have long been focused on the year 2014. Some might think that this year was easy, but that’s far from the truth. Besides the fact that the team was working hard this whole year on our new website, we have also put in some new content. We’ve increased our pace from quarterly to a bi-monthly release, and the biggest challenge was certainly the launch of our billing system, which required a lot of effort to make work perfectly.

But now that’s all behind us, and I look forward to finding the ideal balance of content that will make us much more than just a platform for downloading our magazine. I say ideal balance because it’s important not to overdo it in anything that might affect the quality of the journal our readers are accustomed to. Therefore, we are carefully working on new ideas that will close the circle by creating a format that should be the foundation of BLUR for the long run. I believe we are on the right track, but I will share the details with you in the year ahead. Let’s see this one out in a holiday spirit .

Happy New Year!

Your BLUR team
