After a lot of thought I have decided to start writing a newsletter. In fact, it is going to be my primary avenue of content. Say hello to Clicked.
Before I break down what the differences between the newsletter and this blog will be I want to explain why I decided to do this in the first place.
Why a Newsletter?
One common thread I have harped on over the years on my blog has been consistency. I tried to blog everyday for one month, which got me about 6 days in a row before I fell off the wagon. The way that I see it is that if I have a deadline I will make it so I meet that deadline. I have always worked better under pressure, and I think the having a weekly newsletter is exactly what I need.
What it will have
One thing that I am most excited about this newsletter is that amount of added content I can put in it that I didn’t put in my blog posts.
My blog mainly consisted of link posts and the occasional original essay, but nothing more than that. With this newsletter I can do things like a Q&A, Siri Shortcut Requests, and other more interactive things with those that subscribe. Not to mention the fact that because I am dumping everything at once every week it is going to be stuffed with other things like quick links, short reviews, and small pieces that otherwise wouldn’t make it on the blog.
With this newsletter does come some downsides for those of you who don’t sign up for the newsletter. I will only be posting a month-old original essay once a week on my website. The reason is because this newsletter is my new way of connecting and sharing the things that I want to the people that want it.
When does it launch?
This newsletter will launch Tuesday, January 21st and will come out every Tuesday thereafter.
So please, join me on this new adventure and Subscribe.
