‘Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose.’
Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr
Ah, so it comes around again: newsletters. With drastic changes coming to Farcebook, it looks like they will be pushing all activity into groups (probably so they can push the administrative work of moderation onto unpaid volunteers and pretend that the problem is therefore sorted). You may have already noticed the ways they are ‘rewarding’ good group behaviour, mostly with badges to show ‘top fans’ (Annie Wilkes style). The move will be away from the newsfeed and individual posts — especially if they lead away from the platform.
So, how about a newsletter? You can sign up for mine here.
Fox Spirit Books also has a general newsletter (new released and events) as well as a more informal Skulk newsletter (news, stories, contests, calls for submissions). Click the link and go to the bottom of the page. Join the FB group!
Sign up for my newsletter: you can tell people you belong to a cult! Cult of Kaity design by the fabulous S. L. Johnson images OF COURSE (from ages ago, a running joke the genesis of which I have forgotten). And yes, you can just sign up to the right to get blog posts via email, too. It’s all good.
