Given all the drawbacks, why would I do this? Send out a (Cringe) Newsletter.
So, let’s not call it a newsletter, but rather Jewell’s Pearl Dive.
Jewell searching for pearls, well, okay, sounds like an oxymoron, but what the heck. You know that with diving sometimes we bring up a dead boot.
Some people call me Jo. Jo fits me for my name is Joyce and my family called me Jo when I was a kid, although sometimes I was known as the “Squirt.” Jewell D is a non de plume, like Indiana Jones was Dr. Henry Watson Jones Jr’s moniker, named after his dog. Same here.
An Ad exec. slapped me alongside the head and said I ought to send out a newsletter.
“Really? Why? People hate newsletters.”
“Not if they add value,” he said.
“Can I do that?”
“Why are you blogging?”
“Oh. Good question.”
“Do it,” he said, “because 75% of people who stumble upon your web site never find it again. You get lost in the shuffle. So, an email sign-up would be advantageous. and you will keep their emails safe, no spam.”
“Okay. I’ll do it.”
Some really super-duper people have signed for Travels With Jo.com, and people who read Wish On White Horses.com have been with me for years, I love all of them to pieces. If you are a regular, you don’t need to also sign up for this site unless, of course, you want a quick note telling you how awesome you are, and notifying you of a new blog post.
I believe that together we can make a difference. I believe it, cuz we love the earth, each other, and want to see goodness prevail.
We can do it.
But can I keep this to one page?
All my pontifications aren’t altruistic. I would like to point people to my blogs, and I have a couple of books to hype. But see, you don’t have to buy them. (WHAT! JO. BITE YOUR TONGUE), but if you don’t know about them, you won’t have the opportunity to read them. (What a waste.)
https://wherethebirdsofedensing.com Where the Birds of Eden Sing (Fiction) by jewell d, is available on Kindle. Free is you have Kindly unlimited. $2.99 to buy.
Google doesn’t like the same content on two different sites, but I need two, because they’ve been known to drop into the depths of the sea.
