Putting Together A Newsletter Saturday, November 05, 2005

I'm putting together a political newsletter for email centered on Kentucky politics with some national coverage. I've got some other folks onboard so my aim is to get it going with in a couple of weeks. It's going to be a once a week event right now, going out on Saturday mornings. Some delays might occur during the holidays.

The content of the newsletter is going to be updates from Democrats around the state on current issues facing them as well as upcoming events. At this point, we have no official affiliation with the state party but at some point, I think it's something I'd like to pursue. The leaning will be progressive, meaning moderate to liberal.

We'd like to put interviews, blog posts, possibly even podcasts at some point and the newsletter will contain links to various sources of good information regarding major issues. I will also try to bring in some out of state commentaries on occasion to see what other Democrats are doing in other states and what issues they're facing.

If anyone wants to be a contributing writer, please feel free to submit and I'll try to work it in.

The newsletter will probably be short at first, nothing complicated. As it grows, then we will see what happens.

Hey, any chance we could get this to be on actual paper and not electronic? With all the blogs and web sites out there, it might be different to do things the "old way" and write it up and send it out. Just one of many ideas. I know it would be easier to do things electronically.

An actual news-letter *might* get real attention. A lot of older Democrats don't go online (at least for political items). A single page, mailed monthly might provide an interesting alternative.

Just thinking (and possibly willing to donate time/Money)

That is exactly what I was thinking - paper, older people could read it too. Something to sit down and take some time to look through, like the Sunday paper.

New idea: how about dividing the state by congressional district...each with its own newsletter. State and national news could be the same in all newsletters, but they would also include local news specific to each location. Our community newspapers up here do the same thing. They all have a different front page, but the rest is the same. I thought it would increase consistency. All could be published at the same time...if you're interested, Howard & I could take the 4th district, you could take the 6th (is that right?), Daniel could take the 3rd. We could work on getting all districts covered. Just another idea to consider...

What do you think?
