Happy New Year! I hope that this new year brings you wonderful things! It is always exciting to ring in a new year, and think about what changes the year might bring. For me, it’s bringing some much needed changes to my newsletter, the Kat Eye News.
For a long time, I’ve been thinking about creating a new type of email, one that comes more frequently, highlighting a piece of my art along with an inspiring quote. I always love the “quote for contemplation” my yoga teacher reads at the end of class, and I’ve had visions of incorporating more quotes with my art. A beautiful image and inspiring quote seems like a nice thing to get in your email, doesn’t it? I know I would like to open that.
At the same time, I’ve recently found that my old newsletter format has become a bit burdensome. I liked the idea of a once per month newsletter, but it takes a lot of work to repackage and format the content from my blog into the mini-articles in the newsletter. Time I really don’t have, to be honest. I would rather be creating new art or tutorials for you, than repackaging what I’ve already done.
Then I got the bright idea, why don’t I combine the two ideas? Instead of a separate email with the image and quote, include it in the Kat Eye News and send it more regularly. Along with the image and quote, link to the latest information on my blog and website, since that’s where I update everything anyway.
And voila! A redesigned Kat Eye News has been born. You will see this newsletter more frequently than in the past, but it’s streamlined. You can get inspired by the quote and art, or connect with the latest tutorial, or see when my next workshop is scheduled with just a quick scan.
I hope you enjoy it! I know I will look forward to searching out quotes and sharing my art with you this new way. If you aren’t on the Kat Eye News email list, you can sign up here.
