NOW feedback

Posted By on Fri, Mar 30, 2007 at 9:46 AM

In January, Seven Days started publishing a weekly email newsletter, called NOW, which stands for Notes On the Weekend. I say Seven Days publishes it, but it's really me who puts it all together and sends it out to everyone (with invaluable design and technical help from 7D Creative Director Don Eggert).

In yesterday's newsletter, I included a request for feedback from subscribers, alongside my doofy picture. If people fill out our NOW feedback form by Tuesday at noon, they get included in a drawing for a $35 gift certificate to Three Tomatoes in Burlington.

So far, the response to my plea has been fantastic, and I have to admit, I'm a little surprised.

I was really skeptical about doing this newsletter when I first heard the idea. I get several email newsletters, and honestly, I rarely read them. But this one seems more fun to me — of course I can't tell if that's because it really is, or because I'm the one responsible for it. So it's encouraging to see so many emails from people saying they find NOW useful and interesting.

It's so weird to send out an email to thousands of people every week and never hear back from them. It's heartening to hear that I'm not just spewing fluff into the yawning, measureless void of the internet.

Anyhow, thanks. And if you're not getting NOW, you can sign up on the Seven Days homepage. Feel free to let me know what you think in the comments section of this post, but if you want to get entered into the Three Tomatoes drawing, you have to subscribe and fill out the feedback form.

Got something to say? Send a letter to the editor and we'll publish your feedback in print!

  • Turning Point Center Fights Addiction With Crafts and Community

    Burlington's Turning Point Center is a refuge for Vermonters who are trying to find their way out of drug dependence. In the stairwell leading to the center, a mural depicts a giant hand reaching down to a solitary slouching figure. Just outside the center's door at the top of the stairs, is another message: "You are no longer alone."
