For past two years, I have been supporting the Daily News and Views. I did so because so many people told me that the St. Louis Tea Party email from Bill Hennessy was the first thing they read every day.
Wildly Popular Email
In fact, over 300 people open that newsletter daily of the 2,000+ who receive directly. Another 6,000+ read its contents through Facebook, and thousands more through Twitter. Total reach is over 20,000 people.
Unfortunately, the daily email costs nearly $400 a year to distribute–a cost, as I mentioned, I have borne personally for the past two years. Additionally, website hosting for this site runs about $130 a year.
The money isn’t the only issue—it’s the content.
Lately, I am the only blogger blogging. And $400 a year seems a high price to distribute the work of a single blogger, especially when my blog will notify you every day of new content. So I’m discontinuing the daily email as of August 15, 2014.
Here’s What To Do Before August 15

This would be a great time to tell your friends to join the St. Louis Tea Party Coalition’s email list.

P.S. Yes, the website changed. The old website was very powerful. That power sort of assumed a team of people would maintain it. And that team had to know the system very well. I pretty much am the web team here, and I just couldn’t keep it up. The new, simple layout is easier for me, plus if anyone wants to help it’ll be much easier to learn.
