I’m taking a teeny pause from posting a new recipe to let you all know, I’ve finally taken the plunge and am going to be sending out the Every Nook & Cranny Newsletter from next Saturday, the 14th November 2015! So those who are here for the food, bare with me for this one post – I’ll be back with a new recipe in just a couple more days. I asked my Facebook followers what they thought about it and it was a resounding “yes please”! (So those of you less thrilled with the idea know who to blame, lol… 😉 ):

What say you dear followers about me starting a newsletter? Maximum of one per month but maybe only every quarter. You would need to be subscribers of the blog to receive it. Answers below please! Xxx

It’s something I’ve loved the idea of for a long time and I’m really excited to now be sharing it with you. I plan on packing it full of recipe ideas, my tips and tricks for better home baking and cooking, sneaky peeks of future recipes so you will know ahead of the crowd what is coming plus much more. For instance, I’ll be holding a little competition for all subscribers for the inaugural newsletter where you can WIN one of the new season’s latest cook books. Just in time for Christmas (whether you chose to keep it or give it away 😉 ).

If you follow me on social media, in particular Facebook, you’ll be really familiar with my behind the scenes cooking and in particular, the fruits of my bargain hunting skills! I love a good bargain and none more than when I find some cut price kitchen kit or cookery books – so watch this space, I’ll be sharing what and where those bargains are!

You will need to be subscribed to the blog by email to receive them so now’s the time to get your name on the list! There are two pop ups on the blog or you can navigate to the sidebar to pop your email address down then you will receive my latest posts and the newsletter, as they are published. Which is totally free and always will be, in case you were worried it was going to cost you!

One last thing before I get back to cooking up my latest recipe (some wintery comfort food no less). I’d love to hear from you as to how often you would like an email newsletter to arrive in your inbox. The maximum is one per month but if the consensus from you dear readers is that that is too often, I may roll out one bumper one every two to three months instead. Leave me a comment on this post or use the contact form to tell me what you think! All comments and ideas welcome xxx

The Newsletter will be powered by MailChimp - here's my little monkey buddy Broo who reckons he's a dead ringer for the MailChimp monkey ;)
