e-Veritas: Reality

Background

e-Veritas the electronic newsletter for the RMC Club is in its 10th year.

Over this time, it has attempted to keep the military colleges community – RMC, CMR & RRMC – including cadets, ex-cadets, former & current staffs & family & friends up-to-date on what is happening (and what happened years ago). Our style, definitely not slick has the appearance, at times, that it is being compiled and laid out from a kitchen table. Guess what? The kitchen table is where we do most of the work related to e-Veritas.

By our count, this edition is # 379.

Over the past six years we have averaged over 48 Issues per year! For 2014, this is Issue #22 – do the math – we just finished week 22 for this year.

Following is a detailed summary covering that time-frame.

 

Note: # of Issues by Year: From Jan 2005 until mid Aug 2007, we were using a different program than the WordPress format which has been is use since that time.

2005 – (32); 2006 (28); seven months in 2007 (17) Total ‘views” (378,582) during that time-frame 2005 to 2007.

Grand total: Just over 4 million “views” in 9 1/2 years .

We get our share off “atta boys” and an equal number of complaints. We appreciate the feedback and work hard to keep the complaints to a minimum. Of course, when the complaints are valid and we can do something about improving things – we do the fix to the best of our ability. However, brain cramps do set in more regularly these days!

We wish we could post more articles in both official languages. We will keep encouraging our contributors to provide text in both english & french, however, we will continue to post in the format in which we receive the articles.

Over the past few years we have been pursuing “partners & sponsors” – which has been a big help in providing revenue to the overall RMC Club operations.   Some of the past Club revenue streams have been drying up – mainly from the Veritas magazine, Gift Shop, and the Life Membership Investment Fund (LMIF). To sustain the level of service that members deserve we (The Club)  have to be creative in generating more revenue.

Thank you for past support…
