  1. I guess my comment on this is I don’t really read this email when I get it. If the blog posting at the top looks interesting I might click on that and read it. Otherwise, I just delete the daily digest. So…I guess the changes you have made to this page don’t really apply to me. Looks good though. Thanks.

  2. I’ve been on MP for only a short time, so I can’t really compare the new from the past. I think right now it’s easy to read and navigate through. I like it very much. Thank you!

  3. I like the e-newsletter. My only two points of criticism:

    1. The ad that shows up between the content. I find this distracting. It would be much better off to the side.

    2. The flashback content isn’t that interesting. Not much has changed in five years (moms still have the same concerns), so I think it could be left off the newsletter.

    As a writer and editor, I encourage you to keep up the good work on the catchy headlines. The right subject line (your lead story) can make all the difference in getting readers to open the email.
