Page of Pentacles | Tarot Newsletter

Tarot Thrones | Alexander Danlioff Page of Pentacles
Me and my Tarot newsletter - minus the tights
Yes, another Tarot goal for this year is struck off the first tee with a satisfying thwack! Sure, I'm still at the first hole (well, on the fairway somewhere!), but you know, Rome wasn't built in a day :-D  and at least I'm not in the rough!

Golfing metaphors aside - I sent out my first Tarot newsletter.  *toots party tooter. waves small flag*

You can sign up for it over there on the right hand info bar *points* and I absolutely promise you that your details will remain with me and never be given to any strange men that profer me envelopes stuffed with money.  Or cake.  Mind you, who would want the sort of cake that can be stuffed in an envelope?

I was all Page of Pentacles about the newsletter. I've been using Mailchimp for a while now, but actually creating something for yourself, as opposed to a client, is a little daunting.  That's why it's taken me soooooo long to get OFF THE BLOCKS! 

Look, now I'm now mixing my sporting metaphors.....

What to call it?! Jeez - you can stymie yourself at every single hurdle (more sport!) and I named and renamed my poor newsletter waif about a thousand times, eventually settling on The Little White Newsletter.  

Which I then proceeded to place in a band of bright pink.

Well, why not have a little fun with it all? And in Alexander Daniloff's delightful little Page, we see him with a game tucked under his arm.  And hence all the sport metaphors - games and fun are the order of the day for the Page of Pents!

It was also important to me that the newsletter was brief - I appreciate that there are lots of brilliant Tarot newsletters out there, but right now at the beginning, I just want to pass on information to you while you are checking your morning e-mails so as not to get on folks nerves when I hit their inbox.

The long-winded chatty stuff I save for here * throws opens arms at Thrones Towers*.

So, how did the Page o f Pentacles manifest for this project?

* It was my FIRST newsletter and Pages often represent beginnings of things.
* It was SMALL :-)
* It was a HANDS-ON learning experience 
   (how many times did I edit it before I sent it out - go on ask me! About a MILLION times!! <- total
   Page of Wands exaggeration there, methinks!
* With the newsletter I'm trying to HELP and NURTURE people's interest in Tarot in a PRACTICAL
   way.

What else does the Page of Pentacles say to you? 

Oh and if you missed the newsletter you can find it here.

PS - now that I'm getting the statistics information for the newsletter (which I think are pretty decent), I'm morphing into the Swords family.  All of them :-D

  1. Congratulations on your first newsletter (which I enjoyed). There's a bit of Magician in there, too, but I guess that's not a Court card ;)
