All 5,000 copies of our new BayBuzz magazine have now been distributed through a range of supermarkets, shops, galleries, cafes, professional offices and so forth. If you haven’t seen a copy, let me know by email ( and we’ll try to find you a copy.

But by now, I’m hoping that most BayBuzz ‘regulars’ like you have had an opportunity to browse through the first edition. We’ve gotten heaps of positive feedback, as well as ideas for additional stories, features and even layout and presentation.

We’re already at work on the September/October edition, so it’s very timely to give us any comments or suggestions you might have. We’ve put a reader survey online to help collect some systematic feedback and I strongly urge you to use that … just click here. You can also make open-ended comments via the survey.

However, if surveys aren’t your ‘thing’ feel free to just send your comments in an email directly to me …

I hope you find BayBuzz magazine so informative nd appealing that you will subscribe. It’s $50 for one year — six issues. You can subscribe online here, or send a cheque in that amount to BayBuzz, PO Box 8322, Havelock North.

Finally, if you own or manage a business, I hope you’ll consider advertising in BayBuzz — great rates, no clutter, an influential readership, strong editorial that engages our readers and brings them back, and a super-attractive design. Here’s the info on advertising.

Let us hear from you. Our publication (and website) needs your ideas and cannot succeed without your support.

Tom Belford
