Re: Daylilies>G columns

Auralie and others,
I didn't mean that I thought a newsletter would be easy.  The one I did for
5 yrs did repeat some items, simply because they needed to be repeated.  I'm
sure that finding appropriate material would get more difficult as time went
on for a newsletter.

But this is why, if I had my druthers, I would choose the format I outlined
(two six-inch columns).  Clean, simple, to the point.  When I said the
material would be virtually endless, well, just open A-Z, flip the pages and
point.  If it's an item I don't know, I get to learn something new.  The
problem of photos isn't just in obtaining them, but how, being such small
b/w pics, they would be of little value.  Perhaps that could be worked out
by permission with a few websites to list their sites for photos.  The plug
might be enough to offset the cost of permission.

An endeavor like this would require putting together say 6 months worth
before approaching the publisher to prove it can be done, then working
ahead, so as not to run out.  I think that down the line some repeats could
be run during 'old favorites' weeks, or 'renewed interests' weeks.

As to Jim's mention of ad revenues, all I can say is, how many decks of
cards are advertised in the local newspaper to warrant the same size space
given daily to bridge tips?
