Some important notes
You don’t have to send your message to some special person to post
for you. Grapevine is a
Do It Yourself system, open to all.
Whatever you send will be seen by everyone, so don’t include any
message unless you intend it to be read by all.
No one is going to correct your layout, spelling, grammar etc.
It’s a good idea to send a test email to yourself or a friend
Many people use Windows PCs that don’t display pictures.
Use text. If your
message is a graphic image (such as a pdf) few will see it.
Attachments may well not be opened.
Send your message in plain text, in the body of the email
itself to get maximum exposure.
For maximum effect, keep it short and simple.
