In the last post I mentioned about being in the paper and having to write an editorial.
Today the paper came out with the full editorial and my ad, and it included the photo I gave them. Woohoo!
Popping down to the shop early I flicked through to make sure it was there before I bought it. Upon further reading I noticed it was only. A half page feature (far from the “up to 5 pages depending on now many we get” I was told) and to be honest I am a little disappointed, and sad for the paper.
Disappointed that more people didn’t take up the offer. I don’t make a lot but I figured the small cost of the ad and a couple of hours to do the writing was well worth the opportunity to reach more people with my craft.
Out of the two papers I am in both, with one other person in today’s paper and two other in Mondays. And it stands out. I am really happy with how the ad and the editorial came up. Large bold headings are definitely working.
The editorial has been changed slightly, I wrote it in the he first person, but they’ve changed it to sound like they had spoken to me, interview style. It’s all good. My words are still there, and it reads well.
Now, you might remember I mentioned being in the paper thrice. The first one was a picture taken at the fundraiser I attended at the beginning of the month. I was shown the picture but too busy to get my own shot of it, and I’m not worried about buying a copy.
Now, I must get back to it, I have a couple of things to make for order, and then do my own thing.
