CUTODAY.WORDPRESS.COM, the student e-newsletter produced by Journalism students at Coventry University, has shown its wide appeal, passing the 40,000 hits mark today.
Cutoday.wordpress.com started slowly in March 2009 under the editorship of Jason Craig, built as the official newspaper for the Play the Game Conference in June, and has grown steadily since then under the new editor, Marc Johnson.
The newsletter’s appeal lies in the rich mix of new and fresh stories about student achievement all over the School of Art and Design. Features range from theatre to auto-design to some of the famous faces that come to do Coventry Conversations. The aim now is for the site to pass the 50,000 hit mark by Christmas 2009.
John Mair who helped out with the e-newsletter in the beginning says:
“I am extremely proud of how well the e-newsletter is doing, as is the faculty and the University. Well done Jason and Marc and all those who have made Cutoday.wordpress.com a rip roaring success, Long may it continue and thrive.”
