Email may be one of the internet’s oldest technologies, but email newsletters are all the rage right now.
The reason for the recent resurgence in popularity is the medium’s simplicity: if you’re a media outlet, email newsletters let you reach readers directly, without being subject to a Facebook algorithm or a Google ranking. If you’re a reader, it’s an easy way to scan the day’s headlines without having to type in a bunch of URLs into a browser or scroll through endless social feeds.
ARLnow’s email newsletter has been around for almost as long as ARLnow itself — 9 years as of today — and faithfully delivers headlines from the past 24 hours to more than 12,500 subscribers around 4 p.m. daily.
For those subscribers — and you, if you’re not currently subscribed but would like to do so now (it’s free) — we’re thinking about ways to deliver even more cool stuff in 2019.
Among the ideas we’re currently considering:
- A monthly email version of those local coupon packs you get in the mail
- A monthly happy hour directory (now that it’s becoming legal)
- A monthly email devoted to events and things to do in Arlington for kids and families
- Other monthly emails focused on local topics like health and wellness, home and garden, etc.
Have any ideas on those or any other things we can offer through our email newsletter? Let us know in the comments.

The Arlington-Aachen High School exchange is returning this summer and currently accepting applicants.
The sister-city partnership started in 1993 by the Arlington Sister Cities Association, which seeks to promote Arlington’s international profile through a variety of exchanges in education, commerce, culture and the arts. The exchange, scheduled June 17th to July 4th, includes a two-week homestay in Aachen plus three days in Berlin. Knowledge of the German language is not required for the trip.
Former participants have this to say:
_”The Aachen exchange was an eye-opening experience where I was fully immersed in the life of a German student. I loved biking through the countryside to Belgium, having gelato and picnics in the town square, and hanging out with my German host student’s friends. My first time out of the country, the Aachen exchange taught me to keep an open mind, because you never know what could be a life changing experience.” – Kelly M._
