    Cool New Guinea Pig Wheekly!

    I'm still working through all of the infrastructure issues (it's complicated), but starting last week, we'll be publishing a NEW WHEEKLY newsletter for guinea pigs.

    It's not going to be uber-long, because a) people don't like reading long things in the inbox and b) we have to be able to keep up each week.

    But, it will grow in time to some very cool stuff. Right now, we're just trying to get our process down pat.

    This has been over a decade in the making. Way, way back when, I tried to do a quarterly newsletter and quickly gave up. I'm not going to commit to something unless I can follow through for the long run.

    As our mods can attest, even just running the weekly photo contest takes some effort. It's a ton more work doing a newsletter.

    The next one will go out either tomorrow or Friday. It will normally go out midday on Thursdays, but I've got a forum conference to go to all day tomorrow, so we'll see.

    More info to come on it, just wanted to give you all a heads up.

    I've NEVER sent any email blasts ever to the forum members. At some point, I will email members with an invitation to subscribe, but that's going to take me a while.

    The sign up form is now at the top of the right-hand column.

    Cool. And these deals will only be promoted through the newsletter. You have to sign up to get notified of them.

    Forum members are not automatically subscribed, as this is a double-opt-in newsletter. I'm not going to be spamming anyone who doesn't want it.

    Oh awesome! You were one of my "guinea pigs" then! I only sent out the first batch to some customers who had said they wanted to get a newsletter from our store site. Thanks for the feedback!

    At the top of the side bar (on the right) on the forum home page, where it says "Guinea Pig Wheekly." I'll some more sign up locations later.
