It is sad to see how so many have made bad use of email. As email addresses are compiled and sold we then get unwanted messages. I get over 100 messages a day that I just delete without reading.

I get it. I feel inundated by so many good newsletters that it’s just becoming noise in my head. I really need to step back and let some light and space in, and a few good books:-)

Hi there Hoang! I've been thinking a lot about your post and wanted to encourage you to do whatever brings you joy. One of the great things about having a newsletter is that you can do whatever you like. Keep in mind that it often takes a lot more work to be concise, so sending out something shorter could easily take more time.

You bring up a good point Marg. I do find that it can be difficult to reduce my word count than not, so perhaps shorter isn’t always better…. But it’s something I keep seesawing back and forth, knowing that everyone’s time is valuable including mine so it may not be good to always do longer posts because they do take more time! I will have to keep thinking about this and your advice in mind, and try to think of a happy medium 😊
