“I do so enjoy your newsletters. I can have 15 or 20 unopened e-mails staring at me and I will always look at ‘a way to garden.’”—E.
I LIKE HAVING YOU AROUND, SEE? I hope it’s mutual, and that we each do our best not to lose touch. To that end, you can bookmark my site, and subscribe to my RSS feed if you use a feed reader to look at favorite websites, and I hope you will do those things. You can just show up spontaneously, too; we’re always open. But to stay the most up to date and in touch with me, I hope you’ll subscribe to my free email newsletter. That way you won’t miss anything, ever.
Once or twice a week year-round, I publish an edition that rounds up what’s on the blog. I also try to let you know what else I’m up to—in the garden and otherwise—whether an event I’m giving, or my newest book, or an occasional rant about the weather, or about a great link or website I’m enjoying or a workshop I’m giving, or who knows what.
Here’s my commitment: I won’t use your email for anything else, or share it with any other person or company. If I get to be too much, you can unsubscribe at any time from the link on any issue with a simple click, though I hope our relationship won’t come to that.
Here are more examples of the feedback I get each week on the newsletter:
“Thank you so much for your blog and your honesty. The bright green heading has been a welcome ‘hello’ the last few months. I feel connected to you through our mutual love of nature and our commitment to work in it.”—A.
“…it is very soothing.”—E.
“I’ve been enjoying your gardening newsletter for about a year–it inspires me to do more with my northern garden, informs me of myriad possibilities, yet with a comforting context for things that don’t always work out.”–L.
“You are a brave soul and are living the dream. I love feeling connected to you and your garden/life adventures through your newsletter.”–S.
“Margaret, you’ll never get rid of me. Thank you for your generosity.”—P.
