So this landed in my inbox this morning:
Val Thinks, my newsletter baby of just under 4 weeks, now has over 100 subscribers!
Given that I’m shooting for thousands, 100 seems a measly amount. But girl’s gotta start somewhere.
Half of the first 100 came from tapping friends, family, and my professional network. (Thank you!)
The second half came from promoting my newsletter in a Facebook group of 1.1 million members for Thais looking to immigrate. I positioned it as English practice… you know, read great writing and improve your English kinda thing.
I don’t think I got any subscribers from this blog yet, but girl’s gonna keep hustling.
If you’ve read this far, you might as well check it out. In the past few weeks, I’ve written about coffee addiction, energy management, and perverse incentives. And I’ve got dozens more topics, ranging from moisterising to identity, in store.
My newsletter will keep your Fridays fun and unpredictable, and will probably make you smile.
Now go show some love.
