UPDATE: As of April 2012, I’m no longer producing Hungry for Gumbo. If you’d like to receive an email newsletter from me on content marketing, please come this way.
Hungry for Gumbo is my monthly email newsletter for paid subscribers that chronicles what I’m working on, thinking about and doing.
What began as an experiment in paid content is now a full fledged endeavor. Frankly, email is a format that I had previously overlooked, so it’s interesting to now see email for what it is–a more intimate channel for sharing and storytelling.
Right now, Hungry for Gumbo is read mostly by friends and family, but I’d like to see it grow well beyond this inner circle. While much of the subject matter is personal, the topics I explore tend to be universal.
I hope you will consider paying a small fee each month to hear what I have to say. Hungry for Gumbo is what it says it is, a gumbo. And it’s delivered hot to your virtual door.
