an open letter to my newsletter subscribers
I hope you guys are having a great time receiving the newsletter. I’m sure having a blast sending it out!
Obviously, as a cartoonist I like people reading it. So equally obviously, I want to grow the list.
In terms of growing it, I’ve got my own ideas, certainly. But then I thought to myself, maybe it would be more fun and interesting to reach out to you instead. This is “social media”, after all. And even though I’ve doing it for years, this “open source” stuff is still REALLY interesting to me.
So here’s what I’m asking: You guys receive the newsletter. You guys are a savvy crowd, and you will have plenty of opinions of your own.
So what do I need to change? What could I do better? How could I improve the layout? What new ideas or tools could I be using? And perhaps most importantly, what could I do to make it easier for you guys to share it with your friends?
If you’re already a subscriber, feel free to leave a comment below of send me your feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks a lot!
UPDATE: Since I first posted this an hour or two ago, the comments have POURING in below. Thanks, Guys, this is REALLY helpful!
