thanks @alex !

  • i wanted to start the newsletter to help grow my b2b saas business that i'm working on. so, the honest answer is that the newsletter will serve as a top-of-funnel driver towards my business. but, i won't advertise it directly and my goal of the newsletter is to earn the trust of my readers by giving them crazy value, daily.

  • yes! how welcoming folks have been to yet-another-email-newsletter. there is definitely a bit of "newsletter fatigue" that's setting in, but, for great newsletters... there is always a willing and available audience!

  • i'm using a combo of wordpress + substack, which i deep-dive here on: yenfm.substack.com/p/build-test-an...
