Yesterday, in response to reader requests, we commenced sending out Weekly Updates listing recent pages added to the JOINT-FORCES.com website, writes Bob Morrison.
In direct response to reader requests we have now started issuing regular updates by email, containing links to all pages added to this website over the preceding week, to everyone who has chosen to use the Subscribe To Our Newsletter function on the Home Page.
As the internet becomes more cluttered and as social media page alerts now seem to rotate faster than an old analogue Departures board at a very busy airport or railway terminus (if you are a Millennial this reference may be a bit before your time) it is easy to miss new content if you don’t spend your entire life online. To ensure our readers are aware of all new pages uploaded each week, the plan is that the new Newsletter will list all Headlines and accompanying Standfirst (or Teaser in US parlance) paragraphs with a hyperlink to the page on the JOINT-FORCES.com website.
We have always had this facility on the Home Page but not actually made use of it until now, but as the website is becoming very busy and as a considerable number of readers have opted in to receiving Newsletters it made sense to activate the system. Please note that this is an option and, for as long as you keep supporting our Sponsors and they keep supporting our website, you will not need to Subscribe to read all, and full, content we upload to the site. As we are using Mailchimp to send out the Newsletters, should you choose to you can simply and automatically Unsubscribe at any time through the link at the foot of the email.
In the short term it is my intention to send out these Weekly Newsletter summaries on Sundays, but this is not cast in stone as although the key members of the small JOINT-FORCES team pretty much work 364 out of 365 days (because we enjoy our work as specialist photojournalists so much that we live the dream) there are bound to be times when I cannot get to a computer as off on assignment or there is simply too much going on. If take-up, which so far has been really good, remains high I aim to continue compiling the list each week for the foreseeable future.
