We have decided to do a newsletter. One of the reasons we decided to do a newsletter is we would like to eventually do a blog. So we thought we would ease our way into practising writing something regularly. Most of the content will be written by Becky, but we will both discuss it together before the newsletter is sent out.
This newsletter will be sent out directly to our mailing list. It will also be uploaded to the What Happening page on our website, a few days later. As we take new photos regularly but very rarely update the website. One of the things we thought could go in the newsletter is some up-to-date photos, but I am unsure as to how many photos people would like to see. So I thought I could start with three or so photos.
If you wish to see more, drop me an e-mail, with the newsletter on the subject and let me know how many photos you think would be a good number. I would also be interested in knowing what sort of content, people would like to see in this newsletter. Any ideas or suggestions please let me know and I’ll take them into consideration. One of the most exciting things, that is happening here at the moment is we are just putting in all the framing work for the new pieces of this growing season. I’ve just started the children’s fort, and what I call the ladder dome. Pete and I have also done the first planting of our house trees. So now we only have to wait something like five or 10 years before we see anything really but it should be worth it. The other exciting thing is, we are finally teaching somebody else, what we do. The people that we are teaching had asked us to teach them, quite a few years ago, but we weren’t ready to teach and they also didn’t have anywhere to plant the trees. One of the best things about doing this teaching is actually getting to try some of the things that we just don’t have the space for here. Having spent so much time writing the book Knowledge to Grow. It’s helped us plan out how we would teach what we do to someone else. With our book, we decided to self publish, but as we’re both dyslexic, we decided we really need outside editors. So we have outsourced, the actual editing, but not the writing. We have the whole content of the book except the last chapter. The really funny thing is now that we are into just doing the last chapter of the book. I finally decided to buy some dictation software, so that we could dictate straight to the computer and it has just made our life so much easier. In point of fact, this whole newsletter was actually dictated. So, that is the main reason why we decided to start, doing writing more often. We had talked quite often that we should do a blog or a newsletter. It was just so difficult for us to do the writing. So we’ll see how it goes now that I can actually just dictate straight to the computer. Well, that’s all for now. Happy growing. Becky
