*** A Ministry:

Hi Ned,

Sitting at Bruegger's Bagels in Auburndale (by Star Market–probably not here when you lived here) thinking of how much I enjoy JOTW. Not just the info, but the spirit. Lifts me up during what could be a down period–job hunting. It's more than a newsletter. It's a ministry. THANKS!

Judy

(Amen.

That bagel place was a Brigham's Ice Cream shop. I had many a Lime Rickey and a slice of Boston Cream Pie when I took my breaks from Star. For lunch I would often go next door to Star at the Yem Mee restaurant where Henry would fix me up. The Yem Mee replaced Jane's Luncheonette. There was also an Edwards 5-10-$1 store next to Star, and a dentist's office. The bank was a Sarni's Dry Cleaners. Steve Reagan's Irving Gas Station was many brands, including Sinclair, which replaced Flying A. As a Flying A, there was an airplane on the roof.)

What a great stroll down memory lane. I used to love lime rickeys. When we moved to other cities around the USA I learned that it is only a New England thing.

Judy

(Try the Raspberry Lime Rickey.)

*** Get down:

Ned,

I've been enjoying your JOTW e-mail newsletter for a few years. I tried to find it on your website, and found lots of announcements, but no job listings. What did I do wrong? How do I find your job listings?

Thanks.

Steve

(You probably are looking at the numbered contents. Scroll down…down…down. It's a big newsletter.)

*** From Michael Clendenin:

Hey Ned,

Got this question from a colleague and thought I'd put it out on the jotw wire to see what kind of help we can find him:

We’re looking to benchmark against other member-based orgs who have both a print and online magazine, as we consider doing more with our own online offering (currently a page-turner that gets tossed online after the print pub is final.)

Do you have contacts in associations or other member-based orgs who work closely with their online magazine? It would be great if my colleagues and I could do a conference call or WebEx show-and-tell to learn about:

Technology – Would like to learn about the tools others use to publish the magazine, and also to integrate it with push emails and their main web site?

Editorial staffing and process – how many people contribute content? What skill sets do they have? Do they work thru their “local channels” (e.g. chapters?) to find content and weave it into the national publication?

Ad sales – do they have different staff (or an outside firm) to sell online ads vs. print ads? Are either the print or online magazine designed to generate net revenue, or are they considered a “member service”?

I can understand if some of this might be considered proprietary, so people might be reluctant to share. I can say that we would be willing to share our own corresponding data in return, although at this point it would be limited to the print magazine, since we don’t offer a separate online version (other than the aforementioned page-turner.)

My colleague is Joe Klem, VP Virtual ULI at Urban Land Institute. He can be reached at joseph.klem@uli.org, though I'm sure we would all love the benefit of the answer.

Thanks for posting the query.

*** Music to my ears:

Ned: Uriah Heep did not take me anywhere. Hey, it's all about the moment.

My musical tastes are anything but predictable. My music library has

something for almost everyone (save maybe the serious opera or bluegrass

devotee…). Just the other night, I downloaded Pat Green's “Feels Just

Like it Should” not because I liked the artist but because it reminded me of

a moment in life that I treasure. Music should be like that. And everyone

should have a Pat Green “Feels Just Like It Should” friend in their memory

banks. Cheers to all of you!

Heather

p.s. – Loved Sofman's alternative selections this week. Where does he come up with

those?

(Maybe you weren’t outside the Cape Cod Coliseum trying to get in the fire escape entrance to the Uriah Heep concert, so those memories are not singed into your head.)
