Oops, we goofed! The last issue included an incorrect link to our survey, but it’s fixed now so let’s try again: Our little newsletter is a year old! Now that there are more than 1,200 subscribers worldwide, I want to hear from you. I hope you will take this short, 3-question survey so I can learn more about you and what’s important to you so I can build the best newsletter possible.
