Sadly, our readership has fallen off, and since the timing corresponds to the premature stringing of holiday lights and stores offering bargains to people willing to line up, we’re wondering if you’ve abandoned us for discounts at K-Mart, the Apple Store and Nike outlets.
We think of you as valued members of the Bicoastal Broads family, an amazingly broad range of readers, including regulars in Tokyo and France, and we want you back, but how can the two of us compete with big chains? What if we offer to do holiday cards, blogs, meals for you? You can submit topics and we'll be your online improv team. Want to insult a relative? Tell us how they annoy you and we'll blog about it. It won't change them, but you'll feel better.
Instead of lining up at some ungodly hour (at a time when we’re supposed to be doing godly, not ungodly, acts), I’m proposing you stay home and order your holiday gifts online, which should include our blog. You’re in no danger of someone saying, “I already have it, okay if I exchange it for something else?” It’s the gift that keeps on giving, and no one will be insulted if it’s regifted. Best of all, it’s free!
