We put a lot of effort at iDoneThis into our content, because we write about what we care about: productivity, teamwork, creativity, and happiness at work. But as we quickly found, while quality content is vital, its life is incomplete without distribution, the pumping of publishing’s heart.
In these busy times, it’s as easy as blinking to miss one of our pieces amidst the fast current of content and an ocean of a squillion blog posts. We knew we could do a better job of delivering the best of our content to people who care about the same topics we do. So for us, the newsletter is the missing piece of the content network puzzle that somehow got lost under the couch cushions.
We’re particularly excited about the prospect of doing a better job of developing an iDoneThis community. The thing is, email is people. While spammingly and carelessly abused as a communication method, email can still be done well. And when it is, it can be a quieter channel that knocks on your door and leaves some homemade muffins for you if you’re not home.
And since we’re pretty hammy (and not spammy!) here at iDoneThis, we’re giving away some awesome prizes for new subscribers who sign up for the newsletter by Sunday, August 18, 11:59 pm EST.
One very lucky subscriber will get La Quercia Collezione Grande — a collection of the best American charcuterie, including prosciutto, pancetta, and bacon — hand-crafted by the amazing artisans at La Quercia, a slow food company with values that align with our slow web beliefs. (This one’s limited to U.S. shipping addresses only!)
Three lucky subscribers will get signed copies of:
- These Days, by Jack Cheng, he of this lovely slow web post; and
- The Progress Principle, by Teresa Amabile & Steven Kramer, a must-read book on motivation at work.
Now get subscribing, and good luck!
Official rules: La Quercia prize limited to U.S. shipping addresses only. Open to those who are 18 years or older. No purchase necessary. Winners will be chosen using random.org and notified via email.
Earlybirds who have already subscribed have been entered automatically. If you’d like to opt out of the giveaway, please email janet[at]idonethis[com].
