Thanks for your good works Grif! Today it's hard to get anyone to read anything... The average newspapers & online articles are written intentionally at a 6th grade reading level. Maybe for a reason?

I tried an experiment and it didn't work as I had hoped. Social media is orders of magnitude more popular, for many reasons. Thank you.

Looking at the quality of your efforts, you are certainly to be commended regardless.

As long as your alternative "publication" methods maintain clear value of what is in your newsletter, I can't help but feel that in the end your star will rise.

Social media is instantaneous and broad, but not nearly as deep as forums such as OCDO.

Anyway, Godspeed with your ALL efforts.
