Random notes from subscribers

LANSING, Ill. (October 15, 2022) – The form that people complete to subscribe to The Lansing Journal’s Daily News email asks for basic information that helps ensure successful delivery. The form requires an email address of course, and it asks for first name and last name in order to improve the chances of avoiding the spam folder. The ZIP code is helpful as well.

The form also include one other question: Anything else you’d like us to know? Answering the question is optional, and most subscribers choose not to. But some do. Those notes are fun to read. The notes also provide some insights about who reads this community newspaper and why.
