First here’s your invitation, in case you didn’t see an opt-in box:
What’s the mailing list for?
I blog once or twice a month, but the list won’t send you the blog posts. If that’s what you want, you can “Subscribe to the blog via email” at the bottom of the page (in the footer). WordPress takes care of that – you’ll get the first version of whatever I publish here, by email. (Also, if you’re on Medium, follow me for blog posts and other articles there.)
I use social media a lot, so BCLH has several social media profiles (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter). (Yes, Like/Follow us, please!)
So why should you sign up for the mailing list?
As with almost every mailing list out there, you’ll get content and stuff either first, or that I won’t offer elsewhere. Why? To reward your involvement, but also because engagement on Social Media tends to be a little low and you wouldn’t necessarily see that. For events or comment-worthy pieces, there needs to be critical mass for people to find out and join the fun.
Like first crack at our events. I hosted an EventBrite-ticketed workshop, a native landscaping session, in September 2017. In 2018, we expect to partner with organizations in promoting events we share an interest in. Otherwise – in very special cases – I’m trying to help environmental and birding organizations spread the word about an opportunity to get outside and do something good. Here’s another example: many of my friends and people in my run club want to go plogging. That’s a combo of the Swedish term “plocka up” and “jogging,” or in other words, trash runs. We’re gonna sponsor some trash runs!
And, I also perform a landscaping service. I can help you have the same rich experience at your home, your way, in a fraction of the time it took me to create mine. I’ll send out DIY tips on how to do what I do on your own, and you can also expect the occasional special offer (just for subscribers and their referrals), so I can reward people for recommending BCLH or Rewilding for private and community projects.
One final reason I can foresee sending you an email? I get ideas. These will make their way out to world. That world includes you, and I’m looking for your advice and support. Who better to ask than the people you know and respect?
So go ahead. Click “Sign up.” We’ll be in touch when there’s something you can take advantage of. It won’t be often – maybe twice a month during our work season and once a month otherwise – but it will be short and sweet.
