Housekeeping on Roz Wound Up

September 21, 2017
A quick sketch of Carl Too using a dried out Sakura Pigma FB (fine brush point) pen on an extremely long piece of Stonehenge (12 x 6 inches. There is something really fun about sketching with a pen that is drying out, a sort of race. But also a license to scribble.

So I’m wondering how many readers know I have a newsletter?

Since launching the new platform I’ve tried to do a newsletter every four to six weeks.

The newsletter deals with information that I think my blog readers would enjoy—information on art-related books, art materials and so on.

To make it interesting and non-repetive for my readers I have a goal of discussing in my newsletter things that I do not write about on the blog, or at least not in the same way. (So far I haven’t had any overlap.)

I would really love to hear from subscribers whether or not they enjoy the newsletter, so please leave me a note below this post with some feedback. 

And if you don’t already get the newsletter please scroll down to the bottom of this page—right on down past the comments section until you come to a blue screened portion of the page. There will be a finch looking at you on the lefthand side and in the righthand side there will be an golden-rod (orange-isa) box that says, “Fresh Roz, delivered straight to you.” If you put your email there and click “subscribe” you’ll start getting the newsletter. (I think that you might have to click on an email that gets sent to you afterwards so the mail program knows you really want the subscription.) You will also get an update every time I write a new post. (That happens two to three times a week.)

I’ll understand if you don’t want any more mail in your email box, but I just thought I would give you a heads up about this newsletter aspect some of you might not realize.

Also, know that the email announcements of the regular posts come with a “what’s new” type of header and the newsletter has a different header, so you should be able to tell the difference if you’re sorting your mail.

In fact, I have a newsletter coming up in a week or so that will be my discussion of my pigment box choices for the Minnesota State Fair. This information will only go out in my newsletter. That’s the type of stuff I’ll like to share with people who subscribe to the blog.

Thanks for reading!

    I always read your blog, Roz. And I especially like your images of Carl.

      Ken, thanks so much. I appreciate it. Of course you want to keep up with Carl (and Carl Too) because they have such interesting lives and as you know mine is pretty boring!!!!! I wish I could do half the things they get up to. I hope the art crawl went well. I have been spending more time with the folks and haven’t been getting out.

    I love reading your thoughts on your website and have appreciated your you tube videos. One of them helped me design my first, and only, zine. Also, I love your art! So, I’d be happy to receive your newsletter. I found you through Sketchbook Skool.

    The newsletter sign-up field doesn’t display in Firefox 55.0.3. I’m on a Mac OSX.11.6. The box *does* show up in Safari 11, and Google Chrome 60.0.3. Hope this helps with the housekeeping too; I love the blog, but didn’t know about the newsletter.

      Mia, I appreciate you writing to me about this, but I can’t replicate it on my computer so I’ll send your comment to the tech guy who works with me on this. When I enter Firefox in these versions I see the piece at the end. What I do see though is that the images don’t line up the way they do on Chrome and Safari, so something is up. Thanks a bunch. And thanks for reading. I hope you’ve signed up for the newsletter too.
