Since day one, our goal at GVLtoday has been to create a product for the Greenville community – with conversations around the topics that are important to you, in a way that incorporates your voice + feedback.
In an effort to better understand who you (our 55,750 readers) are, what you’re looking for out of this newsletter, and how we can improve – we’re launching a Reader Feedback Survey.
The survey will take a couple of minutes to complete, and your feedback will be read + used to help us determine how we create GVLtoday moving forward.
Simply put, we want to hear what you think, and we want to continue to improve so this product helps you stay informed about, and engaged with, your community. And (to sweeten the deal) you can enter to win $100 just for participating. 💸
To take the survey, click the button below. ⬇️ We are grateful for your feedback and support.

Once in a while, we get feedback from readers calling us out on our use of the + symbol, which we use brand-wide as an ampersand.
We know some of you have strong feelings about this, and we want to put you at ease that we are not arbitrarily using the mathematical “plus” sign. We’ve actually put a lot of thought and research into this.
#DYK The ampersand symbol originally derived from the latin word et(meaning “and”). Over time, it has evolved typographically from the “et” you can see in the picture above at left to iterations using only the “e” (top right) or “t”(our beloved +).
We know ampersand study is often a passion point for graphic designers, but it’s something we care a lot about too. If you’re interested in learning more, click here to read the complete history of this symbol.
#DYK that your photo could be featured in our newsletter? Just use #GVLtoday on social media.
