Blogpoll (Pollblog?)

This is a blogpoll or a pollblog. I made those words up, I think, but it's the best description for what I'm writing today.

A couple of weeks ago I sent out the Killerhobbies Newsletter for April.

First, I'd like to know if those who signed up received it. A few emails bounced for one reason or another, so if you think you may have changed your address since signing up initially, please re-subscribe. Amusing aside: some of the bounced emails were from "products" such as pain medicine and other pharmaceuticals. Unless "Viagra56" really did sign up for a hobby newsletter!

Second, I'd like to invite newcomers to sign-up. It's easy – there's a form right on the killerhobby site.

Third, I'm soliciting comments on the newsletter. Right now, we all tell you about our current projects, book launches, and exciting offers of prizes. Does this interest you? What would you like to see in the newsletter? As long as it doesn't involve too high a level of html programming, I'll do my best to accommodate.

You can post here (remember, Google allows you to post anonymously if you wish) or you can email me at Camille@minichino.com.

You know the drill: it's your newsletter, tell us what you'd like to read!

Could you please tell me what the website is for Killer Hobbies? I'd love to sign up for the newsletter, and think it's a great idea that y'all have one. (I tried searching and couldn't find the website)
Thank you.

Many, many thanks for putting the newsletter together for us! Your fellow KillerHobbyists appreciate it.

Allison (and all)
The website is www.killerhobbies.blogspot.com ... and you're at the site if you're reading this.

To sign up for the newsletter, go to the site and look down the right hand column. You'll see the list of days of the week and who posts on which days.

Then, right under that you should see a little box with the heading Join the Mailing List. Just enter your name and email, click the Subscribe button, and then click GO.

All browsers are different, so if you still have trouble email me separately at camille@minichino.com and give me your name and I'll sign you up.

The cyber world is not always easy to navigate but it does offer endless possibilities!

Camille - thank you! It was right there in plain view, too. The newsletter is such a great idea. I look forward to reading it. Thanks again.

I got the newsletter. It was fine.
In future newsletters, I'd like info on the various authors books-new ones, but also maybe focus on each of you in a different newsletter, to sort of get a handle on your work. You gotta figure that a fair number of subscribers signed up because they are fans of one or two of you, but maybe not all of you!
Also if any of you are "hitting the road" where you'll be.

Great idea Caryn.

We can start with the May Newsletter and do an interview Q/A with one member at a time.
I'm sure my "sister" bloggers are happy to oblige!

Thanks ...
