First things first: Don’t forget about our upcoming visit from jazz singer Janet Rutland, who will be performing at The Campbell Lounge from 6 to 8 p.m. tomorrow. If you need a good way to wind down at the end of your first post-holiday work week, a martini and some smooth, sultry jazz in our elegant lounge might be just what the doctor ordered. Stop by and let Janet’s gorgeous voice soothe your frazzled nerves while our bartenders mix up something tasty for you to sip. Click here for more details about our talented visitor.
Please excuse our dust: Our PR coordinator’s New Year’s resolution is to make our social media more fun and more useful for all our loyal followers. With that in mind, she’s been tinkering with the blog just a little bit. The most obvious change is the search box next to the most recent entry. Just type in a keyword, and you’ll be able to search the entire archive for that post about the guy with the dinosaurs in his backyard, Jessica’s tips on winterizing your skin, or those photos of your niece’s wedding. Stay tuned; there may be more little changes along the way.
Win free stuff: We always try to do things we think you’ll like, but our tastes may not match yours. As we strive to improve, we’d appreciate some feedback from our readers — and we’re willing to bribe you to get it. Read on:
Beginning today, we are running a semimonthly contest to get input from our readers, friends, fans, and followers. Every couple of weeks, we’ll post a question (or two, or three, or maybe umpteen, depending on how ambitious we feel). When you submit your answer, we’ll enter your name in a drawing to win a special prize — maybe a gift certificate, maybe something else — and select one winner from the responses we receive.
This week, the prize is a $25 gift certificate redeemable toward any service at Spa Maxx. To be entered in the drawing, we need you to:
1. Visit some or all of the following links:
2. Tell us what you think. What’s working? What’s not? What would like to see more of? What could we add to make our sites more fun, useful, or interesting to you?
3. Help us steal ideas. Who else do you follow on Twitter, Facebook, or Pinterest? Tell us your favorites (with links so we can check them out!) and why you like them.
To submit your entry, just post a response in the comments. If you win the drawing, we’ll e-mail you and make arrangements to get your prize to you.
We can’t wait to hear your ideas!
