Time for a Change?
For the past few years I’ve had a newsletter for people who followed this blog. Most people follow my blog on Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest.
For the people who subscribed to the newsletter, I would send an email for each new post. In addition to a link to the latest blog post, the email newsletter had additional “content” as it is called.
Basically I provided links to running articles that I thought were interesting. Often I would add comments on the latest blog post.
I appreciate everyone who subscribes to this newsletter.
Change for more time
It can take a few hours or a few days to write a blog post. Even for a race recap, it takes time to pull together the details and make sure I have them basically correct.
I also updated the newsletter for each blog post by adding some new information and comments, to make it interesting, entertaining and hopefully worth your time.
I know everyone is inundated with emails and Facebook posts and newsletters from major publications like Runners World and even Marathon Sports.
I had hoped to grow the list of subscribers and turn this newsletter into something. I’m not sure what I had in mind, but something.
Unfortunately it never turned into much of anything. Few people subscribed and fewer ever opened the email they received. I’m inundated also, I absolutely get it.
The time I put into the newsletter is time I take away from writing the blog and working on my business. Like everyone else, I only get 24 hours in a day.
So, to get a few hours a month back, I’ve decided to discontinue the newsletter.
If you are not doing so already, you can follow my blog on Facebook, Twitter. Pinterest or through your WordPress account.

Run well my Friends!
