Belly Up to the Bar
Special Advance Notice for Special Communities
I know you all are BUSY. Also, I know you like to come here and hang out with the community since we enjoy finding some of the best stuff, sharing tricks, techniques, and art with you. However, some people go the extra mile. For each little sub-community within Stuck In Customs, I try to do something extra special:
Newsletter Subscribers - I gave out a $50 off coupon on something cool just to subscribers, and many acted on it! Cool! The Newsletter is free, so why not join? Besides that, I try to give advance notice on all sorts of things.
Facebook Fans - I gave these fine people an advance link to a new review I am doing, so they can see it before anyone else. The Fan page was started by a Dutch fan, and we are starting to do all sorts of things on it, including a fun discussion on Which Lens do you Want?
Twitter Followers - Many times throughout the week, I open it up for questions on the new book or anything in between. I think it is cool that I can have direct contact with so many people -- I really try my best to answer most everyone! In addition, I sprinkle in all sorts of inspirational art finds and do my best to keep things fun and light - the way the internet should be!
If you are a member of one or more of these special sub-communities - let me know any other ideas you might have!
Chicago Party in a Few Days!
Woo! This will be fun! The New York and Austin parties were exciting and fun - I really enjoyed getting to meet people and the like. Chicago is next. You can either RSVP on the Facebook Event Page or see more info here on the site!
Daily Photo - Belly up to the Bar
Here is another shot from the ultra-cook Hotel Sax, where we are having the party mentioned above. The Hotel Sax has tons of these really swanky rooms that have a very nice feeling about them. Now, I don't drink alcohol at all... which makes awesome bars like this a little disappointing... but not so disappointing if there is someone interesting to talk to!
I actually, on occasion, end up with people who spend half the time talking about previous drinking experiences while having a drinking experience. I suppose this becomes a recursive function at some point... and I guess it's no different than going out with photographers and talking about other photography outings!
