Paywall success: HeraldScotland breaks through 10,000 subscribers

<![CDATA[In Jan 2013 I took over responsibility for design, technology and subscriptions on Herald Scotland and our other news and magazine sites.

What's encouraging is that the rate of new subscriptions is increasing, with the last quarter being our strongest ever quarter for new subscriptions on record.
