Mailing list

First of all thank you so much for helping me with the font crisis.

When I was formatting my book I chose Georgia (as suggested by grandpa google).

But then I thought maybe I should ask my audience, which is you guys.  And thanks for that because nobody said Georgia.

Since I am doing everything on my own, here is another concern that I had. I have talked about this before too. I don’t want to end-up with an announcement that never gets to people.

If I update on my blog about availability of my book a lot of my readers might never be able to read that post. what if they are just busy that day. I haven’t been reading much on blog these days and I’m sure I have missed a lot of happening stuff.

On the other hand I don’t want it to be annoying promotion practice.

So, here is a message that I drafted. I am going to send it to all of my followers (whoever have their contact form updated, otherwise in comment section)

Hey,

As you know I’m working on my debut poetry book.

I am preparing a mailing list. Would you like me to add your e-mail address please?  If so, can you share it with me?

I don’t plan to do it like hard core promotion, I will just inform you when it’s available and when there is some huge fluctuation in price (sale etc.), as on WordPress reader posts get lost in stampede.

That wouldn’t be more than 5 to 6 times a year, max. 

Won’t bother you with unnecessary e-mails, promise!

Thank you 😊 

If you want you can drop your e-mail address in the comments bellow. That would be very helpful.

So, going to send this to 2307 followers, pray I don’t pass out in the middle.

Thanks a lot for the help and support 🙂

  1. I would not put my email address in the comments as it would be available to all other WordPress readers who look at your blog. I think email addresses need to be safe. There is also something called the GDPR which are the rules about digital information. I have a copy of it on my site. Hope this helps

    1. That’s completely upto you. I wont be sharing the email addresses with anyone. Honestly it’s taking me so much effort to reach every follower I will be taking good care of any information.
      You can give it to me through contact form. I will just notify you on comments on your blog when book is avaiable 🙂

      1. And I wont be using any software like mailchimp etc. I will be emailing everyone from my own gmail and put everyone in BCC.
        I am as concerned as privacy as you are 🙂
        Took really long to decide about it for the same reason
