Dear Big Something Readers,

We apologize for the “gap in service,” but want to make sure we get everything right before we launch with a new email list. Our previous email service proved to be too buggy and was causing too many spam complaints.

When we return we’ll also have a new “digest list” that will allow you to continue to receive the Big Something on Friday’s ONLY with a list of the week’s posts.

Stay tuned and thanks!
