The H is closing down

Filed under
Web

Although The H has produced many widely read stories, it has not been possible to effectively monetise that traffic to produce a working business model.

Because of this, after four and a half years as The H and six years online, The H is, sadly, closing its doors. We thank all our readers for their deep interest and engagement. Work is taking place to create an archive to ensure that the content of the site will remain publicly accessible.

Best regards

DJ Walker-Morgan and the entire team at The H

PS. For one last read why not visit The Final H Roundup where we look at the top ten stories published in The H.
