Dear Blog Reader,
I’ve been meaning to tell you the news: I have two new newsletters about food writing. One is paid. I want to tell you about both while the paid one is on sale.
Here’s why I moved to newsletters: I have so much to tell you about what’s going on in our industry, best practices, links to excellent articles I’ve read, and tips on how to up your game. Substack is a new medium that makes it easy to do so.
It’s easy to get my free monthly newsletter on Substack.com. Just sign up here:
What’s in it? The free newsletter features my list of industry links. It’s the most popular item. I round up fascinating stories and posts about our industry: trends, techniques, best practices, and news. I start with a short essay. Then comes my upcoming events, and news from former clients and students.
There’s insider info too. The most read link in my last newsletter, for example, was this one: How much money Instagram influencers make. With a click bait title like that, you’re going to want to know the answer.
My second newsletter, coming later this month, contains bonus content only available to paid subscribers. My focus will be on:
- Interviews with hard-to-reach people in our industry who are at the top of their game
- Interactive posts, where you can chime in within a prestigious reader community
- Some reported and opinion posts
- And maybe a few personal essays.
As you know, I’ve been in the publishing industry for decades and I have so much to share with you. So if you want to receive both editions of my newsletter — and I hope you do — please sign up for a paid subscription. It’s a way to support my writing, which up until now has been free. All subscribers will always get the free newsletter.
And right now, for a limited time, there’s a 20% discount for subscribers who sign up before November 10. That’s Tuesday! The price is $24 per year if you sign up now. After the 10th, the price goes back to the regular subscription price of $30.
So won’t you join me over on Substack.com? No need to unsubscribe from the blog! I’ll still have two posts per month about subjects relevant to food writers and bloggers. Now I have even more to share with you in my newsletters. I’m guessing that you would actually like to hear from me, since you subscribe to my blog. Which is great, because I’d love to connect with you more on my newsletters.
Hope to see you over on Substack.
Thanks for your support,
