Topic tags/keywords: emag january 2010 feedback

Hi everyone.

I’d love to hear what you have to say about this month's eMag and its contents.
Quite the interview, wasn’t it!!!

We had a glitch at the last second and I apologize for any issues re: layout that has occurred. We will hopefully have the problem corrected for the next issue.

Love this web site and all it has to offer. It’s so great to come here and feel like your part of a huge family of people just like yourself.
I was reading your eMag and was thinking about what you said about the new decade. I was under the impression that the new decade didn’t start until one minute after midnight 2011. This being the last year in this decade we must go through 12 months to complete this decade.
Anyway just repeating what I heard. Make sense to me.
I’m in FL and it’s so cold here I won’t go into my Garage (Shop) until it warms up some. So I get to watch TV and search for good and interesting things on Lumberjocks!

re: decade.. I’ll just amend that to say “the 10’s” :) so I’m right no matter which way you look at it :)

Debbie – I really like the emag and hope to see it continue long into the future. I have told everyone I know about this site. I also suggested to Chris Schwartz at Popular Woodworking that he tell his readers about and possibly start a Popular woodworking forum on it. Have all his article contributors comment at this site.

I do have one question. Can you tell me how to use the widgets on my other pages? I have never used them and don’t know how to do it.

Keep up the great work!

By the way – to Woodshaver – come on, too cold to work in your shop/garage in Florida! It was 12 degrees with a windchill of -2 here and I used two space heaters and worked in my shop. LOL. What are we going to do with these fair-weather woodworkers!

Great job Debbie. I would be interested in seeing a graph, similar to the one you created for 2009, for the previous years. From the stats you posted for January 2008-2010 the number of woodworkers more than doubled each year. Pretty cool stuff!

Graphs (from past eMags)

2009

2008, I hadn’t done a full year of eMags yet so I don’t have a chart.

June 2007 stats were: 971 members; 1529 projects, 1129 blog entries and 480 forum topics

and this is 2010

Thanks Debbie. If this trend continues there will be over 30,000 woodworkers and over 50,000 projects by mid year or 3rd quarter. It may be time to get a few more servers to handle everybody! :)

Debbie, I always enjoy the eMag. It’s fun to see what’s caught your attention in the previous month and rates a spot in your monthly missive. I’m really enjoying the interviews as well. The questions you ask highlight information that doesn’t always show in blog and project postings.

thanks Russel :)

Jason—lots of revamping over the next while. And to think that Martin hoped to have a hundred or so members when he first started the site!

Great job on the eMag Debbie, Very interesting!

Hey! Richard
(rseabrease),

LOL !!! I lived in Massachusetts for 57 years and believe me I know what cold is. I moved to Florida to get out of the cold. I guess I didn’t move far enough south.
I’m 63 and the cold and to me the cold is crippling to my small framed body. All I do is shake shake and shiver! I just refused a job because of the cold here. I must admit I can say no thanks because I’m retired and just do woodworking for pleasure for the most part. If I’m shaking from the cold it’s not fun for me. The good part is here in Florida the cold comes late and warm weather comes early. So with that I can say I have more time to plan a project and enjoy Lumberjocks while I wait for the heat! LOL !!!

Hi, All. Happy New Year.

I just got my latest issue of the Emag but it was addressed to my old email address. I checked my profile and the email shown for me is the correct one. I can’t find a link to change the email for the Emag. Soon I will not be able to receive emails at my old address. Can someone tell me how I get my Emag email to correspond to the one at the LumberJocks site.

Thanks

Andy
