Survey and Notifier

Reader Survey 2010

Hi folks, just a quick post to remind you that the Full Circle 2010 Reader Survey is still open! If you haven’t filled it in, it’s at: http://goo.gl/xMP0 – won’t take you more than a minute or two to fill it in and you’ll be helping us fine tune FCM for the better. Tell us, truthfully, what sections like/dislike and on what subjects you want more/less of. It’s your chance to shape the future of FCM!

Full Circle Notifier

If you haven’t heard, we now have a notifier app for Linux! Not only will it alert you the very second a new issue, or podcast, is released, but it can be set to automatically download the issue/episode for you! It’s available in several packages at: http://notifier.fullcirclemagazine.org/

Full Circle Magazine in print! – sort of

OK, so it’s not an issue of Full Circle that’s in print, but an ad in a main stream magazine is! Behold:

That’s right folks, we have a full page ad in the latest issue of Ubuntu User magazine (issue #05, page 43)!

Ubuntu User is helping spread the word about FCM, so we’re helping spread the word about them, hence the banner at the top of the site.

Digg! Digg damn you!

32x32-digg-guyThank you to all the people who are voting for us on Digg, but we need more votes. Within 24hrs, we’ve had nearly 2,000 downloads, but less than fifty Diggs, that means only one in forty is voting. It’s even less on Reddit and SlashDot! As I write this, Robert is in tears and threatening to do evil things to kittens and puppies.

The more votes we get on Digg/Reddit/Slashdot, the more exposure we can get for Full Circle magazine. The more exposure we get, the more new readers, and possibly converts, we get. So come on people, vote! VOTE!

So, no excuses, here’s the links:
