I found this publication a good read, however the word VITA meant nothing to me it felt as good as the word VACANT. If you are selling to women, we need an emotional connection, so please do not allow a man to name our style of magazine. Learn from your mistakes and open your next magazine "name the cover" idea, as a competition. I'll be waiting to enter! Brett McCarthy, now that you're heading to The West Australian newspaper, please make the Saturday paper a separate paper to the The Sunday Times. Make it your first job!!!

I found VITA for the first time whilst sitting in a hairdressers just last night (Thu 19th March) and loved it that much I was about to sneak it into my handbag! I went straight to the newsagent and found it, then asked if I could purchase the 'summer' issue I had been reading in the newspaper - which unfortunately was not available. Prior to visiting the hairdresser I had never heard of it, nor seen it. I found it a fantastic read, and the photography was stunning, The fact that it was pertinant to living in Perth meant a great deal. I'm hoping to contact you guys to purchase the last issue and ask if there is an annual subscription! There's fantastic idea's for back yards and I can't wait to try the healthy new diet. The Northwest holiday destination shots were stunning. Perhaps the marketing department needs a revamp, and maybe the name. But, at last we have something good and it's getting pulled! Give away a few hundred copies to readers of the West Australian and let it circulate. And make annual subscriptions available at a small discount. Once it takes off it will be much loved I'm sure.

I was just looking on the website to find out how to subscribe to your magazine \'Habitat and Lifestlyle\' and came across the article about this and the \'Vita\' being axed!! I\'m very dissappointed, as it is very difficult to find a magazine which has current and relative material to Perth or WA in general . I am especially interested in articles about suitable plants and the types of gardens that do well here as opposed to the many magazines that are based in VIC and NSW. Often the plants featured do not do as well here, as they have very different climates and soils to us. Many of the products and accessories are not available here also, as we dont have the same retail outlets. Can you tell me if the issue in the newsagent out now, is the last one available, and will there be anything else of this nature to take it\'s place?

Today, 21 March 2009, I discovered the Perth Habitat Magazine and loved it. Finally I found a home and lifestyle magazine produced in Perth and about Perth with lots of information and not overrun by advertisements. So I rush home to subscribe and find that it's been axed. Why?
