Announcement: The News Memo is Back!
It’s been a while since we’ve last seen you. Our apologies for the lack of communication. We’ve been off since June when we went to Italy for our brother/cousin’s priestly ordination in Rome. After that, we took some time off – to rest, but also to think about the purpose of The News Memo and the most sustainable way it can continue and grow. It’s the longest period we’ve taken off since starting five years (2018) ago! Thanks to everyone who has supported TNM, whether just by reading it or financially through donations. We appreciate it a lot.
During the months of break, a couple things have become clear:
We re-discovered the problem for which TNM was started in the first place. There’s no good way to follow the news in a simple, concise way. Without TNM, we don’t follow the news much either!
People miss it. We have received so many messages from people asking for us to continue sending the memo. We still see friends wearing News Memo sweatshirts, a good testament to the brand and mission. This feedback has been affirming.
We talk frequently about wanting to give our time to creating and building things of value in life – community, music, sports, ventures and The News Memo definitely falls into that.
That said, for The News Memo to be a sustainable venture, it requires a paid membership model. We asked our subscribers what they thought of this idea and the results were fantastic. Can’t wait to start The News Memo back up!
Here’s what our survey results showed:
