My beloved think pad took a header last month and fubarred the screen…so for my monthly newsletter I have returned (yeah, so I’ve been doing this for three months…and I have “returned”, ok?) to creating content by hand.
Guess what? This month’s newsletter has been my favorite thus far. I had a lot more freedom to work. I had more content. I was less censored. I allowed myself to be me. And I liked it.
This is the first newsletter of which I have been very proud.
It is not entirely hand-written. I made sure there was a page of nothing but the clickable links, so no one would have to type in a whole bunch of stuff if they wanted to check anything out…because me writing it down that one time was bad enough for me. I didn’t want anyone feeling that bad having to type that into a search bar or anything…
And just so you understand: I do not include affiliate links at all. I did include a lot of links to the family website…but that’s all my stuff. I do not shill for other people. I link to people and things that I love because I love them, never because I am paid to do so. Just to be clear here.
This month’s newsletter–even though it went out late–not because I was late getting it together–but because I hit a technical snafu where apparently I am in one time zone and my carrier thinks I am in another…and I didn’t realize what was going on (I thought the email to me got lost in the ether of internet crazy-dom, as emails sometimes do…) and it took me a bit to realize, nope, it’s just a technology versus me issue–and I corrected it…and the newsletter went out on the 10th, instead of the 6th, as I had meant it to.
This month’s newsletter (ahem) is chock full of…personal stories (how many people have missed those? I have…and that’s the important thing.) — actual writing exercises — prompts — artwork –knitting — a couple tutorials — and gosh, I actually forget what all went into this month’s issue. I had an outline I was writing from and I just kept writing until I had nearly everything crossed off my list…then I went in and added links and photographs and who knows what all…and I ended up with a lovely 61 page PDF of free yummy goodness and my own brand of sappy weirdness.
And that was just for March…who knows what will happen for April?
