I received an email the other day from the Department of Homeland Security employee I found reading the Saipan Blog. Turns out she's moving to Saipan and was looking for information about the island online.
Except that now someone at the Department of Justice is reading my blog. This is from the blog track on "The Saipan Blog: Daily OSB:"
They visited 81 unique pages on Daily OSB and the last page they visited had...a picture of a sunset.
I'm working on two Under the Pala Palas. One is a recap of my week in Washington, DC (which I'll probably send to the newspapers) and the other is about how the CNMI contributes to Climate Change (contrary to some opinions that we don't).
I haven't blasted one out in over two weeks. I'm due.
Speaking of Under the Pala Pala, my email list continues to grow. Those of you who have been on the Beautify CNMI list for several years know that I've been sending weekly updates for some time now. I was hesitant to use that list for my campaign for Mayor and started completely from scratch on a new one...less than two months before the election.
I started my campaign much too late. Still, I managed to receive several online donations and I think my email list was a big part of that. After the election I decided to keep on paying for the email service and what was once my campaign email list is now the list for Under the Pala Pala, my regular commentary.
My list is now has twice as many subscribers as I did on the day of the election and it continues to grow every day. To join people simply have to input their email address on this blog and then they are sent a confirmation email.
Every time I send out one of my commentaries I get at least a dozen responses. I enjoy that interaction with my readers.
I might write a blog in more detail about the service I use because I'm pretty happy with it.
And now I'm rambling, so I'll stop there.
