Our path, our results, our newsletter
Beyond Thirty-Nine is sailing around the world pushed by its incredible achievements: about 120,000 hits, 6,000 unique friends and 40,000 pages read each month. Moreover, our offline events are becoming a cultural appointment well known in Hong Kong and abroad, followed by a growing number of enthusiastic people.
It was only to be expected that we would plan another step to improve our platform. So, starting from today, we will publish a newsletter. Our intention is to be polite, helpful and not aggressive. You won’t be bombarded by dozens of emails every day, we promise you, but you’ll only receive the news about new articles and events, as a gentle reminder. It is a service that we’d like to offer you, without any other goal but to tighten up our cultural correspondence.
The feedback we have received from our readers has been so motivational and inspirational that we are now designing many other events linked with different authors, arts and disciplines. And we think we need a good continuous link with our loyal fans.
So please submit without fear, terror, fright, horror, alarm, panic, agitation, trepidation, dread, dismay or distress to the Beyond Thirty-Nine newsletter: you will be in good hands!
The second point that we wish to address is this: thanks to our quantitative achievements, many companies and agencies are looking to place their ads with Beyond Thirty-Nine. We have a cultural non-profit-making platform based on our voluntary work. However, it is facing huge and growing expenses (essentially for IT, organization and sponsorship of the events). To sustain our growth, we need a financial support, which it is easy to get from advertising. Thus, starting from today you will see some ads at the bottom of our first page. We will try to keep them balanced and again not aggressive.
Anyway, please feel free to express your feedback about our strategy: we’d appreciate it so much.
The next appointments are scheduled for the end of May (28 May in Macau, 30 May in Hong Hong): lectures, films and theatrical plays about Grazia Deledda and Sardinia, with the participation of Italian writers coming from Sardinia, international scholars and actors.

Be with us, my friends.
