Circulation

I can't do much at the moment, but here is what I can do for now. I received a few copies.
I have been distrubiting them with this statement:
Quote
I think you will like this. I am offering it to you under these conditions; once you are finished, you find someone you can pass it on to with these same conditions or you return it to me.
So far every one I have passed out has elicited this response: Oh, my father [friend at work, uncle, fill in the blank] should read this.
One cop thought it was interesting but "doesn't go for all the government is behind 911" stuff.
I can agree to pay for 5 of each issue for now and I will use them to increase distribution in central Ohio. Possibly in the future I will have 1 sent to my son in Charleston,SC to work on circulation there. I'd like to see this become THE alternative nationally circulated newspaper.

Thanks, Guys.
We have distributed nearly six thousand copies, mostly here in Montana. We have several "hot-spots" in Montana where the Patriot movement is very strong, and they're eating up these papers fast. I've received a lot of very favorable comments regarding the content. And we're getting subscriptions in the mail now. One guy from about three hundred miles northwest of here just messaged me that he distributed 30 copies in Lincoln County and is sending me a handful of subscriptions and some donations.

And all of that is good, but if y'all liked our first issue you're gonna love the next issue. Vol.1, No.2 will go to the printer on December 07, 2009, and will reach me here in Three Forks on the 8th. This issue is shaping up to be a really nice issue. We've actually found some commercial advertisers - not many, but some.

I've been waiting the past three days to announce our new website for the Messenger. In fact, I started a thread in this forum last night, posted it, and then checked the link and found to my dismay that our subscription page still has some bugs to be worked out. With Turkey Day coming tomorrow, I doubt I'll be able to see that problem fixed in time to announce the site, as my web guy is likely to take tomorrow off.

But sometime very soon now we'll announce our website, and with that we shall do just as you'd like, Ragnar - we'll take this baby nation-wide.

Thank you both for passing the paper around. I hope that some percentage of folks who read the paper will feel prompted to order subscriptions, for that is how we plan to finance the paper. Donations, subscriptions, and the occasional ad. Each issue costs thousands of dollars, and we're really hoping the grassroots public will want to support this paper. As you've now seen for yourself, we're not bashful about taking the Internet's bounty into printed pages. My vision is to build this paper to national status right away, and I do believe we have what we need to do just that. We appreciate everyone's support.
Stay tuned!
Salute!
Elias

Do you need more writers? Like a cooking column maybe?

Thank you for asking, Gaurd Duck. We're pretty well scrunched for space, as our articles are generally much longer than normal newspaper articles, so we're probably not going to want to include a cooking column. We are trying to do a steamlined paper dealing with issues coming at Americans from government and corporate criminality, with a flavor of promoting liberty-related activities and organizations, such as MSSA and JPFO,  etc. But I thank you sincerely for suggesting the idea. The paper which got us started is The Big Sky Weekly, out of Big Sky, Montana. They certainly may want to review cooking columns and or other articles.  http://www.thebigskyweekly.com/

Salute!
