I’ve finally got the Behold Newsletter out. After almost three years of dormancy, my system was finally ready to send something out to all the Buyers and Tryers of Behold.
I’m hoping to send out something once a month or so. The content will depend on what is relevant at the time, but I’ll try to make it information that is interesting and useful to you. Meanwhile, for the day to day stuff, this blog is the place to come.
I should say that after the mailings, about 10% of the emails bounced back to me. Most of these are due to invalid email addresses. If you purchased Behold, or sent for a Trial key, then you should have received a newsletter. If you didn’t, please contact me and give me your new email address so you can get future mailings.
I also finally sent a mailing out to all those people who filled in my Behold/GenealogySoftware survey that I had on my site from 1997 to 2004 prior to the release of the alpha of Behold. Over half of those addresses were bounces, but even so, I have now fulfilled my promise to let those who were interested in Behold know that the Beta is now available.
The Newsletter system works quite well. I should be okay for awhile, or at least until I’m mailing hundreds of thousands of people each month.
