To Newsletter or Not to Newsletter

To Newsletter or Not to Newsletter

Recently I have been ignoring my newsletter. I hadn't sent one out in about 6 months because, well, I'm not really sure I understand the point. Between my blog and Instagram, I'm not sure I have much else to say. And if I have something to say, don't I want to post it here?

I try to be a minimalist when it comes to extras - as fun as they can be, I'd rather use my time to sew. But recently I have started to wonder if there is value to newsletters and I opened up this question in my Instagram stories: What do you value in a newsletter?

There were lots of answers. Some people hate them, some people like tutorials, sales, news, tips, inspiration, and some people just want to be directed to blog posts they may have missed.

It turns out that some people hate them, but some people love them and I want to be able to connect with those people too. For the next couple months I am going I am going to try sending out regular newsletters (1 or 2 per month) and try to make them more than a re-telling of what you see here and I am hoping to put a focus on the creative process. Most (if not all) of that information will be available here as well, but I want to make sure it is accessible to people who don't read blogs regularly. Blogs used to be the gold standard for sharing information, but times change so quickly!

After the first question, I had a follow up: Which newsletters are your favorite? This question also got lots of responses and I wanted to share those with you. Most of these were recommended by multiple people.

Do you have a favorite newsletter? What makes it your favorite?
