An open letter to my email list

For the past six months I’ve been distributing/posting my blog on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and through an email list to family and friends. As well, I have followers who have signed up for my blog on WordPress.

I love hearing back from my friends and relatives who receive my blog via e-mail. But I don’t want to be the person who sends unwanted email. Also, maybe people who are also my Facebook friends don’t want to be on my email list, and see a link to my blog twice. Or maybe they do, especially if they’re not on Facebook regularly. I think it’s time to find out.

So, to my family and friends who are on my list, please let me know if you would like to continue receiving updates – or not.

As well, since my blog has gone in two different directions, let me know if you are interested in continuing to receive only food and/or chocolate blogs, or only my writing/journalism/post-downsizing posts.

I think, instead of sending my four-day-a-week blog to the same list, it might make sense to have a “writing/post-downsizing” list for my Tuesday and Thursday posts, a “food blog” list for my Friday posts, and a “Chocolate Sunday” list as well.

Thanks for your support, and I look forward to hearing back from you.

  2. Hi Frances, and belated best wishes to you for 2014. Please keep me on the list for all the writing/downsizing and related blog posts. Thanks very much! Paul

  3. Dear Frances, while I rarely respond, I do read, especially the blogs on writing. Please keep me on the list for those. Re the food blogs, I also find cooking therapeutic, and I love chocolate…but in my downsizing effort, I have jettisoned so many recipe files….please don’t tempt me!
    Your were a marvellous reporter and your love of your work showed through in everything you wrote. Please let me know about the book.
