Subscribe, get a thank-you gift

August 29, 2010

Hey, Jon here with an update on this blog. I have shifted to an email service that lets me do more than just repeat blog posts. It’ll let me create a “blog one another” monthly newsletter.

I think we’ll find that a newsletter will help deepen the relationship we already have.

(Did I mention the free song I’m giving to subscribers? Oh, not yet. Read on…)

Are you a regular reader?

Some of you subscribe to this blog via the RSS feed. You can continue using your newsreader. Just select “Monthly newsletter only” in the form below, and fill in the rest.

But some of you have been regular (or irregular) readers without using RSS. Perhaps using a bookmark, you visit the blog manually to see if anything is new. I say, let robots do the work for you! Sign up for “Daily posts + monthly newsletter” and you’ll automatically receive an email if I’ve posted anything new.

And some of you visit from Facebook — but only if you happen to notice an update from me. If you have a lot of Facebook friends, their activities (updates, Farmville, whatever) push my “new post” announcements off the bottom fairly quickly. So I’d say chances are, you’ve missed some posts — maybe even some good ones. Sign up below, and you won’t miss out.

Free song for subscribers!

As an added nudge, if you sign up, you will receive a free song as a thank-you gift, written by yours truly. Gosh, I hope that comes across as something positive! I promise you the song will be better than hitting your thumb with a hammer. Since both the song and the blog come from my heart, you’ll find that there’s a connection between the two.

(If you’re already an email subscriber, you won’t be left out. I’ll send you something separately.)

So sign up today! Just fill in the form below.
Of course, I will not share your email address with anyone.

Thanks for being part of my online community.

As an American missionary kid who grew up in Japan, I'm a child of two cultures, while not fully belonging to either. This gives me a sightly different view of the world.

  1. Huh, I got a message saying that my email address is already subscribed, so I guess that means I will already get the newsletter? AND the song, I hope 😉

  2. Yes Sami, since you’ve been getting the (semi) daily posts by email, you’re already a subscriber. I mainly wanted to alert people who get here by other means (RSS, Facebook, etc.) that I am offering something new. Don’t worry, you’ll get the song!

  3. Love the song. Great beat, and you can dance to it. And also great message. I love online community, and I’m glad it has helped me reconnect with so many people. But chatting with Jon on blog comments is a pale substitute to praying with Jon at home group (all those years ago.) 🙂

  4. Glad you liked it!
    I’ve only performed the song twice, but I like to introduce it like this: “Who here has spent time in online chat rooms? Well, this next song is… not about that.” 🙂
    I really like your interpretation too, though.
