Newsletter Update- Please Read!

As most of you know I write three blogs each with their own newsletter. It takes a while to put together each newsletter, which means I spend several hours each week just working on newsletters. I’ve been thinking about what to do to cut back on the time. I thought I could hire someone to write my newsletters, but that is an expense I don’t want at the moment. I could just stop the newsletters altogether, but I know that y’all enjoy getting the extra codes.


There are several other issues that have been plaguing the newsletters. One of those is the sheer number of people on my lists that just don’t bother opening them. Another is some people email saying they aren’t getting them. Then I check and find out they are but are bothering to open them. Sometimes they are being bounced or many other things. These issues have been the biggest reason that I wanted to stop altogether.


After plenty of thinking, I decided I would write one newsletter for all three blogs. Most of you are already signed up for all of my newsletters. Others are signed up and receiving two of them. A single newsletter means you will get information from me along with your codes and other things all in one place. You no longer will have to go through different newsletters finding codes.


On August 1, 2020 The Rita Report will publish. It will be the big premier of the new newsletter that will publish the 1st day of every month. NOT weekly. Don’t worry, there will be more than one code that you can use throughout the month on all the blogs. Before the codes only worked on Rita Reviews. To solve the previously discussed issues, I decided I would have you sign up for the new newsletter. This way I know everyone who wants a newsletter will get one.


I will watch this newsletter every month. I will make a note of those who don’t open it and if you don’t open the newsletter for three months, you will receive an email from me asking if you wish to remain on the list. You will still be able to let me know when you don’t receive it and I will have an archive link for all newsletters. Only doing one a month will free up my time to pay better attention to the newsletter and other things. There will be a monthly giveaway in every newsletter. Don’t worry, you won’t have to enter it. You will be entered by opening the previous month’s newsletter.

JULY 31, 2020

On,JULY 31, 2020, you will stop receiving a newsletter from me. To receive The Rita Report, you will need to sign up for it. You can do that easily and you will receive codes to use right away once you confirm your sign up. Sign up on any of my blogs in the sidebar or by using the form below. Don’t worry, I will remind you every week this month in the newsletters you are receiving and on social media.

    I always open your newsletter email when I see them but the codes are a little confusing and sometimes I don’t use them because I don’t want to do something wrong and then be disqualified for the giveaway. They are confusing nice idea though.

    I just signed up for your newsletters. I think combining all three blogs into one newsletter is a great idea.

    Merging into one sounds like a smart idea, especially as it would most likely up the rate they are opened.
