Well folks and devoted readers I can only tell you that my recent return as a columnist to the Island Packet is as much a surprise to me as it may be to you.
So here it is. I met with the editors and this is how we keep my column alive. In the world of media we now follow digital ratings. That means that newspapers judge the effectiveness of any column and in fact any newspaper based upon the data of clicks on the link which I am sending you. They are not interested about how many read the actual newspaper themselves that we purchase at the local store. The newspaper world determines their actions and strategy based upon digital clicks. So what I am respectfully asking you that each time you receive a post from me that is from a recent newspaper column that you click it and hopefully read it online. The experts at the newspaper said that if I up my clicks that I will become "bullet proof."
A brave new world of digital prowess that masters our lives is in place today. So thank you for your support and readership and I am delighted to be reengaged again at least for the time being.
Happy New Year Shana Tova to all my Jewish readers.
Have a good read.
