Use it or lose it

It is a bit of a cliché but the reason clichés become so over used is because they often mean exactly what they say. Use it or lose it is exactly what I mean when it comes to The Mover magazine.

You see the beauty of The Mover is that it is independent: it’s not published by anyone who has a ‘position’ in the industry or any axe to grind (there’s another cliché for you). That means we can publish what we like, sometimes sail a little close to the wind (whoops!), and tell the truth as we see it, even if that upsets a few people.  That’s why, I wager, you like to read it and it has been so successful over the last nine years or so.
