The Daily Email Is Now Online
Sending out a daily email is a great for me to reach out to members of the Kansas City Sports Monitor. But I kept thinking there is something missing. Members need to be able to go to the website and see the daily update if they can’t find the email, accidentally deleted it or whatever the case may be. I have also wanted to grow the website to do more.
The daily email was a great change to stay in touch with our members, but I always felt like the website would at some point go back to having more content. So today I want to invite you to return to the website and make a habit of checking it every day.
The website will have a post called the Morning Monitor. That’s the daily email you are used to receiving in your inbox. But there will be so much more. The game notes that I currently include in the daily email will have their own post. Videos will be posted on the website throughout the week. And there is more coming in the not-too-distant future.
The daily email will continue as-is for a little while, but eventually it will change into something a little different to save you time each morning but still let me reach out to you every day to keep you informed.
So, you might not have visited the website in a while. Take a look at it today and mark it as a favorite. You will want to check it daily if not more often.
