Philip, I wonder if the title of your news is the problem? It’s funny but people may have seen it and unsubscribed because they might have thought it was porn. In America for sure. Rooster is just as funny almost ( ?). I loved it. I think I subbed maybe just didn’t like its title? Because after reading it you would have to want next week’s piece!

You've been subbed for a long time Jennifer you don't need to again :P

I did think about that. Might need to change the email sender/page title to something plainer. I had this image of someone opening it at work and being beaten with a stapler.

Ha! Did I sub again? I had no idea! Sorry if I messed up your graph! Yeah I think the title nsfw….but it made me laugh!

Just changed it to 'comedy' to make it easier, and because TCCON isn't the only thing which will be on this. I also have an anti-suicide cooking video where I'm wearing a cardboard box on my head, a sketch about cannibalism, a song about a poet I'd like to kick in the nuts, and some silly drawings.

Thanks again for all your comments and input :)

A stapler? How about an eraser?

My thoughts on the nine unsubscribers from your newsletter:

Be true to who you are as an author, comedian, and poet. If certain readers don't like it and leave, so be it. Their loss. The rest of us will continue to enjoy your stories.
