It was about time! I have been thinking about doing something like this for a long time, but never really came around to it until last week. Even though this blog is great for keeping people updated on what I am up to, it also misses some of the smaller items (for instance, I didn’t post about the recent cover of Climber magazine) and the long term plans. An email newsletter is a much better format for this kind of thing.
Now, I am sure that like me, you already receive dozens of newsletters every month, some of which you don’t even remember signing up for. Because I hate spam just as much as you do, I wanted to make sure things are done correctly: unsubscribes will be easy and immediate (I use the excellent mailchimp service which automates this) and I will limit emails to one about every 6 weeks. I will use these emails to summarize what I have been up to in the last few weeks, display my new images (with links to more complete galleries) and talk about future plans, including any events and workshops that may be coming up – which, by the way, I think will start happening in 2012!
