Weekly digestsJune 26, 2010 by: Simon
My goal is to keep everyone updated with my musical career as well as provide some interesting insight into what I do. I’m trying to find a good balance between sending out too many emails and blog notifications vs. providing enough content to stay relevant and interesting. It’s tricky. My original plan was to send out everything as one huge weekly update, but I’m run into a few problems with that:
- The composer blog might be interesting for a few people, but I doubt that everyone wants to hear analytical articles about music.
- If I write personal thoughts, a composer blog, site updates, and new events all in one blog post, you can’t look up blog posts by category.
- With everything in one giant post, it’s simply too much to read all at once.
So here’s the new plan: I’m going to post whenever I have anything to say, and send out a single newsletter on Friday mornings. The weekly digest emails will contain links and summaries to all articles written within the week. This way, I can update as often as I want without feeling like a spammer, and you can read only what interests you. Bare with me here as I have no experience with journalism, writing, or communicating with human beings.
