When I killed off the weekly “3 Links I Love” post last month, I told you something new was coming. Today I’m pleased to announce that every Friday will be home to the Cranky Weekly Review presented by Oakland International Airport. The first post will be next Friday, September 30.
What exactly is the Cranky Weekly Review? If you were a subscriber to Cranky Daily, this will be very familiar. Instead of daily, however, we will post the 5 top trends of the week along with some potpourri and Andrew’s famed
dad joke moment of levity every Friday afternoon.
If you don’t know who Andrew is, well, you’re missing out. He has written most Cranky Dailies and has been instrumental in putting on the Cranky Network Awards — he was the guy pacing back and forth and sweating when we had those sound issues last year with our vendor — all while also doing his duty as a concierge and being a partner in a marketing company. He’s a busy man.
If you were a subscriber to Cranky Daily, you already know that today is your last issue. We know that’s sad, but on the other hand, you’ll now get a weekly post with similar content absolutely free. Why on earth would we do that? Thank OAK.
The good people at Oakland International Airport were fans of Cranky Daily, but they decided that the world should get to enjoy our snark and most importantly, Andrew’s levity. They’ve become the title sponsor of the Cranky Weekly Review so everyone can now read it. We thank them, and you will too once you’ve had a chance to read a couple issues.
You now have one week to build up impossibly high expectations for our first issue next Friday. Let’s hope the airlines give us plenty of good fodder to meet those expectations.
(Oh, and I apologize in advance if any ongoing Cranky Daily jokes — like Wheneverfest or WestJet’s archnemesis Eastar Jet — sneak into the CWR. It’s going to happen, but feel free to hit the comments and we can explain if needed.)
