Wow. Just wow.

What an incredible response to our first ever choose-what-you-pay subscription drive.

This offer is now closed.

We weren’t too sure how it was going to go, but record breaking numbers of readers took it up and became members in just a couple of weeks.

It’s been truly astonishing.

From subscribing to spreading the word on Twitter and Facebook, so many of you have helped us thrive and stay fierce in our independence.

It’s become obvious that people come to Crikey to understand the news, and that they are willing to dig deep to show their appreciation.

And for that, we’re chuffed, and we thank you.
