A Letter from the Ed.

Hey everyone,

I’m switching things up a little. I’ve been hearing that three essays a week is too much for even the most ardent readers to keep up with, and I have to say I understand why. FGP isn’t a website where you’re all, Ha! That guy’s phone autocorrected his text to his mother to say something completely disgusting! or, Whoa, it turns outs that by taking this quiz, I have revealed myself to be a carburetor!

The FGP writers offer up some really terrific stuff, the kind of essays that require a little space to devour and sink in. I’m not being a drama queen here. It’s a fact, Jack.

So, I’m going to start publishing twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The essays will be up at noon, EST, because I know I get a little overwhelmed by my inbox and social media feeds first thing in the morning.

If you haven’t signed up for the notifications from me, you can, over there in the upper right. And if your primary way to find out about new essays is via Facebook, a tip: Go to the Full Grown People page, find the “Liked” button and hold it. It’ll bring down a menu, and if you click “Get Notifications,” you will get notifications. (Otherwise, it may or may not show up in your feed.)

Thank you so much for reading!

xo,

Jennifer

    I am a carburetor! I knew something was missing in my life …

    I’m so glad to hear this. I love what you’re publishing here, but have definitely been challenged to keep up. You’re right – these pieces deserve a little extra breathing room.

    Wonderful news.
    Thanks for being so tuned in to your readers!

    I, for one, will miss the three! I love them all!

    I will miss the third one also!

    Thanks for weighing in! The beauty of web publishing is that if this doesn’t work after some months of testing it out, I can always change it later. I’m hoping that, by scaling back a teensy bit, I can have the space to grow the biz.

  6. I think twice a week is a good idea. However the spacing is wrong. If you want the pieces to have breathing space, they should have roughly the same amount. The Tuesday piece will have only two days while the Thursday piece will have five.

    Excellent idea. And I think more people are online on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so it’s win-win all around.

    Just don’t stop. :) I love to read and these are just my size. Sometimes I choose to take a break and then I come back and read a bunch all in one sitting.
