While my previous posts have been concerned with the stats behind some of our posting areas, I wanted to provide a bit of information about the number of subscribers we have at LINGUIST List. We have two main listservs which provide content to all of you. These are LINGUIST and LINGLITE. Combined these listservs have about 20,000 subscribers with slightly more people subscribing to LINGLITE than LINGUIST.
However, outside of our conventional subscribers, we maintain social media accounts on several social media platforms including Facebook, Google+, and LinkedIn. On our facebook page, our announcements reach several thousand people each week. Our social media and listserv presence allows conference organizers, job submitters and linguists around the world to get their information out there.
Providing content that attracts subscribers is costly. We would be extremely grateful if you would consider donating to the LINGUIST List at funddrive.linguistlist.org . Thank you!
