To Newsletter or Not To Newsletter?

I just got back from Imaginarium, and boy is my brain tired! I was on SEVEN panels during the weekend, and moderated four of them.

One of the panels was on how to produce a newsletter and what to put in it. The only newsletter I’ve ever done, as far as I recall, is the one I do for the Community Unity Educational Resources Committee, which is overdue now and I really need to do it, although I had it over half-way done when my computer went kablooie so I’ve sort of kind of done most of it, if I can retrieve it….

ANYWAY, would anybody subscribe to an author’s newsletter from me? If so, what would you like to see in it? How often would you like to receive it — monthly? quarterly?

Does this person need a newsletter?

    Of course, I’d subscribe!

    Anyway, a couple things right off the bat:

    –Extra mailing list to keep track of.
    –You already blog daily, so…
    –Extra WORK!

    😉

    I would try to be supportive and probably subscribe, but in my experience newsletters start begging for content, introducing self-imposed yet artificial deadlines that (in the case of most that I see, those of the Paper.li variety) drift into mediocre content. I’m not saying you would fall victim to that, but I like you blog. It’s focused, it’s fresh everyday and it’s 100% interesting. Hard to hit that mark with a newsletter.

      The answer seems to be that, no, I don’t need a newsletter. Alrighty, then! 🙂 And thanks for all the kind words.
