June 1-5, 2009

This is my first newsletter, and frankly, it's almost all about the website. I did nothing all week except work on creating content and marketing it. (Well, OK, I also taught some classes.) And since this only stretches back to Monday, I don't even have a weekend to talk about!

So here's what went up on the site in the past week. As for marketing, I've been posting tweets to Twitter, emailing friends on Facebook, and generally "getting the word out." The 365 Secrets of Happiness page has its first subscribers, and over 50 Facebook fans. It's a good start!

I'll kick off a new project ("Centerings") on June 15, and start the FREE Daily English Lessons in early July.

So that's it. Check in often, because there's always something new on www.JamesBaquet.com


Here's a summary of this week's publication on www.JamesBaquet.com:
