I have been really happy lately to have hooked up with a really amazing group of empowering bloggers/FB content providers over at Wellness Universe, the FB resource directory for all things wellness. I am learning so much, and for the first time in a long time I feel part of a team – a GIANT team of wonderful people, all with something to say. I have co-workers again, (yippie)even sitting here in my recliner in my jammies, as I often am, and I am loving the sense of community. Remember, that’s what I asked for few weeks ago…and it came right to me. (I’d still do a bloggers circle if anyone wants – I do have one taker).
Now one of the things all my new cohorts are talking about is the importance of putting out a newsletter because FB is getting harder and harder to use for page content unless you are willing to pay $… since I have nothing to sell but ideas and support, I’m not interested in paying. SO – I thought I’d try it out – it was a different take on reaching my readers – more personal maybe. I went to Mailchimp, set up an account. I spend most of a day working out what I wanted to say and accomplish, what I wanted it to look and feel like – and got the newsletter ready for beta-readers tonight. I kinda like it.
I decided that the Happiness Toolbox (no link) I have started work on would be the gift my subscribers would receive and that I would feature one happiness tool each month in the NL. This month it’s GRATITUDE.
Now if you’re old hands at this, you know what’s coming next. I looked for how to put the signup sheet in the sidebar of this blog. Only then did I discover I can get it onto my Facebook pages but that we don’t have plugins on WP dot com, including the Mailchimp-Wordpress plugin and I have to find a workaround. The code at the top of the post is from Mailchimp and no, I have no idea what to do with it.
So, I really need some help if you or someone you know has done this, I’d love to hear from you..
