There’s always so much I’d like to tell you: little hints and tips, things I’m trying, products I want, special offerings I’m making from Theresa’s Gardens, seasonal reminders, some of the things other readers are doing, or something I just learned, etc.
But I can’t always tell you through the parameters of TendingMyGarden or FlowerBorders.info.
After giving it a lot of thought for more than a year, I’ve decided to offer — upon your request — a free subscription to receive special emails from me on a regular basis. (I’ll tell you how in a minute under How to Subscribe.)
These emails will share with you a lot more about what I’m thinking, more of my secrets, hints and tips and other timely information that I feel may be of interest to you and help you with your gardening goals.
You’ll also have an opportunity to see and obtain plants that I can’t offer on a website because I don’t have enough — like some of my rare and/or exquisite daylilies.
The Difference in Subscribing to these Emails and Subscribing to TMG and FlowerBorders.info
When you subscribe to receive notice of my new posts on TMG and/or FlowerBorders.info —- it goes through an automated system. (Those of you who have been reading for a while will remember when it appeared as if that automated system <Feedburner> lost all my readers and for a while I didn’t know if you were still with me or not.)
When you subscribe to these special, private emails from me — they will be generated by me — rather than an automated system.
How I’m Able to make this Offer
Although there are many folks out there who could greatly benefit from TMG and FlowerBorders.info and who would be thrilled to know you can garden without doing what all the hype says you have to do — a blogger (or website owner) has to actively “look” for those readers.
Two of the most important ways to “look” for and be found by readers is
- through a social media like Facebook and Twitter and
- leaving comments on other related sites.
I’m not interested in spending time on Facebook or Twitter in order to have an active Facebook or Twitter following. And although I do frequent various forums from time to time, I really don’t want to spend a lot of time looking for sites to comment on.
As a result of that, my sites currently are not gaining readers from those major sources. But as with every thing in life —- it has its advantages and disadvantages. No matter what the situation – both advantage and disadvantage is there.
The Advantage of having Hundreds of Readers rather than Thousands
Statistics indicate only a certain percentage of my readers will subscribe to this private-emails-offer and take this opportunity.
If I had thousands of readers — the number of subscribers (according to statistics) would be large enough that I’d be required to use an automated system for the subscriber list. Otherwise I would be accused of spamming by the internet “powers that be”. That’s just the way it works when you have a website.
But I have hundreds of readers rather than thousands so this private email list should easily come in under 100 subscribers. When I reach the number 100 — whenever that is —I will not be able to take anymore subscribers to this private email offer.
Will the Offer Last Forever?
No, probably not. Things will change over time — although I don’t know how long it will take. My readership will grow from search engine traffic — although slowly. My writings that appear in various newspaper publications as well as occasionally in the national magazine Out Here sponsored by Tractor Supply will also help folks to find my sites.
When things change to the point I can’t do the private emails anymore— I’ll let everyone know.
In the meantime you can gather a lot of good gardening information from these emails.
How to Subscribe
Send an email to me at Theresa@tendingmygarden.com. (send a cc to firstname.lastname@example.org in case the other email is not working, which seems to be the case quite often) Type in “subscribe to your private emails” in the subject line and/or body. I request that you type in your name as well since it’s always nice to put a name with the email.
If for any reason — at any time — you decide that you no longer want to receive these emails — just unsubscribe by sending me an email saying “unsubscribe to your private emails”.
Your Invitation to be one of 100
I’m interested in writing about and sharing with you how simple it is to be a successful organic gardener. I care about your success.
If you feel that you would benefit from having more information from me and knowing more of what I have learned in 35 years of gardening, I invite you to be one of the 100 that will be able to subscribe to this very special and limited email list offer.
And just in case you’re wondering — your name and/or email address will not be shared with anyone!
An old Chinese Proverb says in order to get through the hardest journey we need take only one step at a time, but we must keep on stepping. The gardening journey that we’re on is not a hard one, but we must still keep on stepping to be successful.
Being one of the less than 100 readers on my private email list is an easy way to keep on stepping towards success.
I’ll be looking forward to receiving your subscription request. And remember this opportunity to hear more and learn more from me is free. But as I mentioned previously it won’t last forever.
Request your subscription now while it’s on your mind. I don’t want you to miss even one of the special emails. (I’ve already planned to give you a great piece of information in the first one about something that a lot of folks do that causes aphids on lettuce.)
Send an email to me —-Theresa@tendingmygarden.com —- saying “subscribe to your private emails”.
