What Do You Want The Newsletter To Be?

All right party people, a while back, I put the Stronger, Smarter, Better Newsletter on hold while I tried to figure out what in the world I was doing with it.  I didn’t feel like I was doing it particularly well–it just felt like an obligation, which can not result in a thrill ride for you, the reader.

But a lot of people have been asking me to bring it back.  So, because I can’t say no to you–I’m bringing back the newsletter, but I’m only going to send it out on the first of the month.  Occasionally, if something really big happens, I’ll let you know, but I’m not anticipating that very often, if ever.

So, if you have already subscribed, you’ll be getting newsletters from me on February 1, 2010.

But if you haven’t…

Please subscribe to the newsletter and I’ll make it worth your while.  But let’s talk.  What would you like the newsletter to be?  More of the same as on the blog?  Something different?  Seriously, tell me if you can think of anything.  I’ll take as much from the suggestions as I can and come up with something special for you.

    Maybe make it something more personal where you share certain ideas or suggestions that you wouldn’t through this blog. In my newsletter, I tend to share my thoughts that are off topic from my what my blog is about. It creates a more personal element between my readers and me. I’m sure there are better ideas out there, but that approach seems to work for me. Maybe give it a try if you want.

    Hi Josh,
    I second Robby. I’d love to hear if there is something else going on in your life that doesn’t quite fit into the topics on WSL. I also love newsletters that have a specific topic of each edition, and all of the information in the newsletter relates to that one topic. That way it becomes a little playbook for that topic of interest.

    I think I like what every one else is saying as well. I think you share some great personal stories here. Maybe more “how to” type material could be incorporated into the newsletter.

    You know how I love Kettle bells Josh, but I’d like to know how your book business and stuff like that is going.

    Use the newsletter to issue challenges, like to read thought provoking books, hidden history (things you didn’t learn in the history lessons in school), …
    Announce in advance initiatives like Banned Books week.
    Allow a form of feedback on the challenges and insert them in the next newsletter or in a blog-post.
    PS: Don’t issue reading challenges on a weekly basis, I have my own reading list.

    I like book reviews. And lists.
    But I also like the idea of challenges, of many varieties. How about also guest columns?

    The book! Tell us about the book!

      Soon enough, but it won’t be worth a year of newsletters:)

    I love book reviews too and many challenges also!
