To an anonymous helper: Thank You
I am testing the adage, "It is better to give than to receive." And I am having a lot of fun! After the long solitary winter of writing, I'm now giving away Straight Into Gay America to anyone who will have it. Just sign up at www.straightintogayamerica.com and the pages start coming, A-Page-A-Day, delivered to your email.
In the first week of the giveaway 208 people signed up. Yesterday, one of those pages must have struck a chord with one of those readers. She or he forwarded must have forwarded that page to over 500 people. I know because my website got an extra 450 visits yesterday. And A-Page-A-Day subscriptions increased by 44 yesterday.
In one day, my readership jumped by 20%. All because of one single person who said, yes, I'll share this page, this story, this hope.
If you're reading this, I hope you'll visit www.straightintogayamerica.com and join the fun on the journey to LGBT equal rights. Sign up for the giveaway. Then start giving it away.
To whoever this one person is. I thank you very much. If you're reading this, please drop me a note and tell me what you did.
