Where’s This Newsletter I Signed Up For?



Greetings, programs!

A little catch-up, because a lot has been happening over here at SciFi4Me — a lot of it’s “inside baseball” stuff having to do with recruiting, reshuffling priorities, reassigning responsibilities, and whatnot (plus binge-watching Jessica Jones…) — and in the midst of all of The Busy, we’ve sort of neglected a few different items in our promotions and communications wheelhouse. One of those items: our newsletter.

Now, if you’re seeing this article in your e-mail, it’s because at some point, you gave us your e-mail address and signed up either for the newsletter or as a subscriber to our site. In either case, thank you! We appreciate your interest and hope to continue delivering content you find interesting and relevant. And we also hope you’ll share with your fellow fans, because right now, word-of-mouth is our strongest method of growing our audience.

To that end, we’re taking steps to have our newsletter back in circulation this month. Kammie Settle, our industrious writer of recaps for The Librarians, has offered to undertake editorial duties for the monthly sharing of the news, and we plan to have something to you on or around the 15th of every month. (That’s the current plan, anyway…)

The newsletter will be our way of pointing you in the direction of articles and podcasts we think you might find interesting, and occasionally we’ll have some “subscriber-only” content that will be found only in the newsletter. And if you want to get signed up, just send us an e-mail or click on the link on our home page.

Of course, you always have the option of the “unsubscribe” because we don’t want to rope you into anything permanent. And we’re not going to ask you to buy something or anything like that (although we do have that “Support Us” button…). Instead, this is a way for us to make sure you see what we’re doing and make sure you don’t miss anything we post. Our big push will continue into 2016 with more podcasts and interviews with celebrities, comics creators, authors, and people on the front line of creating the stories that you enjoy.

Naturally, I’m hoping you continue to support the cause here, reading and sharing our articles and listening to our podcasts. We really do have a great team here, and I’d like them to have every opportunity to impress you. Some will impress you more than others, and that’s OK. Not only do we have a diverse audience, but we also have a diverse staff with different skill sets and fandom specialties. Let’s face it; we can’t all be fans of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or Rocket Ship Galileo, right?

There are other things in the works here, but those are probably the ones most relevant to you, dear reader (at least at this point). This could change in three months. But if it does, you’ll know because you’re signed up.

We appreciate each and every one of you. Because that secret that sits at the heart of SciFi4Me … is you. It’s even in the name. You, dear reader, are the core of what makes all of this work. Without you, we’d be trees falling in the forest with no one around to hear the sound. To borrow from the Twin Peaks cast, without our audience we’d be “a log without bark”. Nothing holding us together. No purpose.

Our goal is to deliver content that you like to read, podcasts you like to hear, shows you want to watch — you’re a big part of our growth towards our goal of world domination … covering the genre’s news and rumors with verve and keen wit.

Give us purpose. Give us meaning. And we’ll give you our best.
