I have always LOVED getting newsletters in the mail. Something other than a bill just puts a smile on my face.
Yes I know its wonderful to have all the new devices with kindle, nook and so on. I don't have any of those. I have bought e books but there is something about holding a book in your hands that just feels good to me.
I would rather have 1000 books than a mini computer that houses them all. Call me old fashioned.
We used to get a dairy news newsletter years ago. We usually got one every other month. It was a highlight for me. To be able to sit down when I felt like it and read up on recipes, tips, different ways of doing things, toss it on the table and pick it back up again when I wanted. Or keep it on the shelf and be able to reference something later on.
We are wanting to take a step back and get away from the hustle and bustle (more so than we already are, if that's possible) I am still going to write on my blog and facebook page! This will just be more in depth, be a place to help each other connect and have a more personal feel.
What I am thinking is either a monthly or simi-monthly publication. We are still looking into pricing but it would be very reasonable. All articles would pertain to the season or time of year. We would have a small classifieds section and a Q&A section for your questions. Recipes and a DIY....Articles on various farm and homestead subjects....
Whats your thoughts or ideas? I really want to know!
