FB Wood-Fired Newsletter
We have kicked off a fun new project -- the Wood-Fired Newsletter. It is an email newsletter with techniques, recipes, products, special promos, etc. The idea is to make it fun and educational. We are using a very high quality email services company, and so far, it's going really well.

If you get a copy of the newsletter, let us know what you think -- and make recommendations for future content. It has to be useful.

I had to make some changes to to make it work, along with doing the newsletter template and contact management set up -- but we're good to go now. I think I'm ready to start the Video Series. At least I will be when we finish painting the kitchen. More on that later....

We're open for recommendations.

How bout Jim's Corner?

A nice insert on bread baking every issue.

I'd read it.

Re: FB Wood-Fired Newsletter
And a question and answer section....

Re: FB Wood-Fired Newsletter
There is an FAQ on that I wrote about four years ago. :-) Maybe it's time to revive it -- I hope it's still accurate; it could use to work. If we polish it up, it would make a good newsletter article.

Re: FB Wood-Fired Newsletter
Its just an idea, but how about an article featuring a particular oven each time?

How often will it be sent out - once a week/month/year...?

Re: FB Wood-Fired Newsletter
What are you going to call it?

Let's have a newsletter naming contest! (More buckshot flour?)

Has it gone out yet?

Re: FB Wood-Fired Newsletter
Sounds like a plan to me. When can I expect to see it? Do I need to make any changes on my profile to make sure I get it or is it going to everybody?

Re: FB Wood-Fired Newsletter
How do we get the newsletter? Does it automatically go to our email or do we need to sign up...?


Sounds like a great idea.

Re: FB Wood-Fired Newsletter
Because the Forum has a "do not send me email" option (opt out) -- Forum members are on the delivery list automatically. That is unless you checked that box. :-)

We are working through some delivery issues with the mail management company, but you should see it (if you haven't yet) in a couple of days. The lists are pretty long, and we want to get it right. We've send about 1/4 of the newsletters so far.

Let me know when you get it, and what you think. We will be adding sections based on Forum input in future Issues. It will be monthly.

Re: FB Wood-Fired Newsletter
I got it. It looks great. I like the layout. It's brevity is also nice. I would rather have a few topics of focus, rather than long didactics. I receive too many newsletters that I simply don't read because they are too long.

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 08:39 PM.
