The magazine you are now reading began to be published in July 1879. Times havechangedsincethen—andsohasthisjournal.(See photos above.) Beginning with this is-sue, you will notice further changes in theformat of 
The Watchtower.
What will be dif-ferent?Look at the table of contents on page 2,and notice the heading “Read More Online.”Each month, you will see under that head-ing the titles of articles that will be availableonly on the Web site
www.jw.org.
Why pub-lish some articles online?In many countries, more and more peo-ple obtain information online and feel com-fortable with this approach. With the click of a mouse, they can tap into sources of infor-mation available only on the Internet. Manybooks, magazines, and newspapers can beread online.
With this trend in mind, we recently re-designed our Web site www.jw.org, making itmore appealing and easier to navigate. Visi- torstothesitecanreadpublicationsthathaveappearedinmorethan430languages.Begin-ning this month, however, visitors to our Website can also read selected features that haveregularly appeared in our printed magazinesbut will now appear only on our Web site.

Among the articles that will appear only online are the following: “For Young People,” which outlines youth-oriented Bible study projects, and “My Bible Lessons,” aseries designed for parents to use with children who are three years of age and under.
Since we will be publishing more articlesonly online, the public edition of 
The Watch- tower 
will be reduced from 32 pages to 16,effective with this issue. Already
The Watch- tower 
is published in 204 languages. With the shorter format, it may now be possible to translate this journal into even more lan-guages.It is our hope that these adjustments willenable us to reach more people with the Bi-ble’slifesavingmessage.Wearedetermined to continue providing a rich supply of en-lightening and appealing information—bothinprintandonline—tobenefitourmanyread-ers who respect the Bible and who want toknow what it really teaches.
