On a Personal Note: New Site Sneak Peak
Maybe you’ve noticed… my website is completely different! I’m not quite ready to do a “grand re-opening” yet, but go take a gander. Understand that some of my links are broken, especially my newsletter archive, but I’d love to hear what you think. You’ll also notice a little bit different look to my email newsletter; I will probably be tweaking it in the coming months.
As part of my website rehaul, I have changed how newsletter subscriptions are handled. If you’ve noticed, I’ve sent out special occasion notices here and there as I run across a resource or time-sensitive event that I would like to make you aware of. Because my normal newsletter only comes out once a month, I like to be able to keep in touch with other news a little more frequently if needed. I have just added a second newsletter in my subscription setup called “Keyway Strategies News & Resources.” For your convenience, I have added you to this new list, because you were already receiving these notices anyway. However, if you wish not to be included in the extra news and information, you can simply change your subscriptions (you’ll see the link on the bottom of each newsletter that you receive).
You may notice, too, that my blog is a fundamental part of this new website. This is exciting, because it allows me to post things that I don’t want to necessarily send out as a newsletter and allow visitors to read at their leisure. To see this extra content, you’ll need to visit my website periodically or subscribe to my RSS feed. You’ll see a little orange icon and some links on the right side of my website that will allow you to subscribe in your feed reader of choice. If you already read news or blog posts in a feed reader, this may be a good option for you. If you don’t already use a feed reader, you may wish to subscribe to blog postings by email. You’ll see a link to do that on the right side of the feed page. What will happen is that approximately once a day, little creepy crawly web spiders will come see if there is any new content on my website and then post it on my feed and email my feed subscribers. 🙂 If you don’t want to have to remember to come to my website to see if I’ve posted anything new, subscribing to feed posts by email is a great option.
An additional advantage to this new blog format is that it allows me to get more feedback from my readers. Comments are enabled on each blog entry, and anyone can post a comment. At times, I’ve seen virtual “discussions” happen through blog comments, and it’s a nice way to see how people are responding. I’ll be posting my newsletter articles on the blog as well as other stuff, so feel free to visit and make a comment. If you’d like to comment on anything, simply click on “Add a comment” at the bottom of the entry and you’ll see a little box that you can type in and then submit. You can use your real name or an alias; either way works.
You’ll also notice a handy-dandy search box on my website. Once I get my newsletter articles all posted, you’ll be able to search for any past content on my website easily. So if you remember an article I wrote about leadership or a free pdf creator that I recommended, you can easily find it again.
I’ll be continuing to work on things at www.keywaystrategies.com. I realize that there’s an added complexity now that there are several ways that we can keep in touch. If you’re confused by any of this, just let me know. Come visit us soon!
Feature Article Note: I am excited to include another article by Mr. Jack Canfield in this month’s newsletter. This month’s article is all about coaching, a subject I hold dear. I had the great pleasure of working with Jack to develop his Success Principles coaching program and know each of the coaches personally. Jack’s Success Principles are very well suited to the coaching model and the coaching program is getting great reviews.
Also of note, the photo that Jack used in the article is of one of our Success in Harmony subscribers, a dear friend of mine. How great is that? Hi, Abe!
