I’ve taken quite a bit of time off from this space over the past six months, and I did that because I wanted to evaluate what I enjoyed about creating content and what I didn’t. It’s been a bit of a journey — for a while there I wasn’t sure I wanted to come back — but I really know within my heart that writing and creating and connecting is what brings me the most joy, so here we are. I’m back — with a new online identity and website, and now it’s time for the next addition to that creative redirection: the newsletter.
Some of you may have been subscribed to the old newsletter, where I sent out monthly emails that featured tech backgrounds, wishlists and links to articles I found interesting. You might have also been subscribed to the book club newsletter, where we chose four books each month to read and chat about as a community. Think of this newsletter as a combination of the two, but more refined and sophisticated… and this time in a weekly format.
There’ll be a reading list of relevant articles from the week for you to peruse, a peek into my daily life in photo format [what you don’t see on the glossy feeds of Instagram], plus my favourite products / items from the week and some movie, book, podcast and music recommendations. I’ll also be sharing some of my favourite creators on Instagram and beyond, as well as the recipes I’m making and the things that are inspiring me. Think of the newsletter as our weekly catch-up and check-in. I’m hoping it’s something you can refer back to as a source of inspiration, warmth and encouragement, like — hey, I’m here for you, you did a great job this week and here’s this incredible pecan cookie recipe you have to try.
Make sure to subscribe to the newsletter if you feel like it’s something you’ll enjoy. I look forward to connecting with you further through a more personal format.
The first newsletter will be sent out on Friday 2 July. You can subscribe here.2
