February Advertising Special

The Nebraska Family Times is offering a sponsor/advertising special in February.

When an individual or business purchases an ad of any size for a year, and pays in full by February 28th, that ad will run for an extra month--13 months for the price of 12!

This offer is also good for sponsorships! If you, or your business, would like to purchase a minimum of 10 copies of the NFT every month for only $1/copy, to hand out to your friends or offer to customers who come into your business, when you pay in full ($120) for the year by February 28th, you'll recieve an extra month, FREE!

With any size ad, you'll receive a FREE sponsorship!

If you, or someone you know, is interested in advertising in a family-friendly, Christian newspaper, please contact me at or (402) 993-2467 or Marcie, Promotions/Advertising, at (402) 675-3039 or


I am blessed in that someone who is interested in promotions/advertising was led to me and the Nebraska Family Times!

Every month I stop in at The Abbey, in Norfolk. Kay, the owner, has been a friend and supporter for several years. Last time I talked with her she that she knew someone who might be interested in writing book reviews and articles for the paper. Several days later, Kay talked to Marcie, who then e-mailed me.

When I saw Marcie's resume' I realized that she would be perfect for doing promotions and talking with people about advertising in the NFT, and so I asked Marcie if she'd be interested in doing so. She was, and got to work right away. We met several days later and "clicked". She has some great ideas for marketing, publicity, and advertising, and I'm looking forward to working with her!

She's going to be writing some entertainment articles for the paper, about Christian music and books. She knows people in the industry, so will have the latest information--I think it will be a fun addition to the paper.

Odds and Ends

My "newspaper" to do list was filled with odds and ends today! First on the list was to call the man at the Wayne Herald, where the paper is printed, to let him know the date we'd like to print, along with how many papers to print and what the accent color will be. When I got done with work (at my nursing job), I discovered that he had already called me! I feel behind when he calls first, but he's very friendly and didn't seem to mind. It was easy to choose the color for the March issue--green, of course, for St. Patrick's Day. I love getting to choose the color, and coming up with a reason for choosing that color.

Next on my list was to email Jennifer, the lady who lays out the paper in preparation for printing. I haven't heard back from her but she's been working on the paper for a long time so I'm sure she knows the layout will be next week.

I also sent several e-mails to people who have expressed interest in advertising in the paper; we're offering a February special--details in the above post.

THEN I made some temporary business cards for Marcie, the lady who is the new Promotion/Advertising person for the NFT. (More about Marcie in an above post.)

All in all, it was a fun and productive day! I enjoy the variety of this job, doing different things every day, coming up with new ideas, and so on!
