There is something beautiful about the personal newsletter.
We love the depth and admire writers who cover niche topics in great detail. We love the intimacy of seeing these notes arriving in our inboxes directly from our favorite authors. And we love the serenity of reading every word without being interrupted by notifications. It’s a welcome change from 140 character limits on Twitter, fake news on Facebook, clickbait headlines and search engine optimized copy.
We often wake up in the morning, eager to check if the latest issue by our favorite author has arrived, much like we used to check the mailbox for the daily newspaper or weekly magazine in the old days.
And we thought you might too.
To help you discover your favorite personal newsletters we have created this directory. Each of the personal newsletters has extensive editorial content right in the email; you won’t find any blog notifications or auto generated lists of links. We also skipped all email marketing campaigns and direct promotions; while the authors of the personal newsletter might have a commercial interest, the purpose of the newsletters we picked is not entice you to purchase.
- What is a personal newsletter?
- The personal newsletter usually contains extensive editorial content and is typically put together by people who are passionate about a certain topic. This type of digest is not about blog notifications and auto generated lists of links. Also, you won’t find any email marketing campaigns in there. The personal digest is about curation and expression of thoughts.
- How can I submit my own newsletter?
- You have a personal newsletter? Yey, we can’t wait to take a look! You can submit it here. After we review your submission and your newsletter qualifies as personal, we’ll include it in Discover.
