The hip new trend that all the cool kids are getting involved in is newsletters. Not wanting to miss out on all the fun, I decided to start a Newsletter too. I’ve called it Craving Coffee.
Well that’s a stupid name…
Yeah, I know, but I want Craving Coffee to be something that provides some easy reading, maybe with a coffee. Picture the scene – you wake up in the morning, head to kitchen and pour yourself a coffee (or whatever your jam is). The sun is shining and it’s a beautiful warm day, so you open the French doors onto the garden.
You sit down, take a sip of your fresh coffee and go about checking your emails. Lucky for you there’s the latest edition of Craving Coffee sat in your inbox, just waiting to be read. You peruse the email, and find some interesting stuff there. Life is good!
That will be you if you subscribe to Craving Coffee! Ok, maybe not, but that’s the vision I have in my head, so I went with it, ok? 🙂
What’s Craving Coffee all about then?
I’m so glad you asked, dear reader. To be perfectly honest, I don’t really know yet! My plan is to send monthly emails (probably) which contains an update/post/essay about something that’s been on my mind. It could be an update about the site, a thought, or an interesting post that I’ve seen since we last spoke.
I really wanted a way for me and you to have a more personal connection. Blog posts are great, but they’re a one-to-many relationship. Even when you comment, that goes into the void – it isn’t a real conversation.
Email, I feel, is much more personal. I will be sending Craving Coffee from an address that goes right into my inbox. So if you reply with a question, some feedback, or a suggestion for a blog post, it will hit my inbox, I will read it and I will respond.
I don’t know if it will work out – it may fall flat on its face, or it may be super successful. We will have to wait and see I suppose.
If you didn’t know already, I take privacy seriously, and Craving Coffee is no different. The newsletter system is hosted by me, so your email won’t be going to anyone else. I am in complete control of it and I promise your email will not be shared.
Plus, all emails will include an unsubscribe email that actually works. If you unsubscribe, your email is deleted from the system. It’s that simple.
By now I’m sure you’re chomping at the bit to get involved, right? You want to be that person basking in the warm glow of the morning sun, drinking coffee and reading my drivel. Right, right?
Joking aside, I’d love it if you did subscribe as the more of my readers I can connect with the better – I love hearing from you guys. It’s why I continue to run this blog. If you do want to subscribe, you can use the form below.
