The Happy Hour
Almost a year into my little newsletter “experiment” and I still haven’t exactly figured out what to do with this area. I thought it would be good for just writing some quick thoughts on something timely. But as time has gone on, such thoughts have quickly spiraled into 500-ish words-esque posts. So I should probably just post such things there
Ideally, I would still like this to be a less formal and more direct form of writing/communication. But try as I might, things tend to formalize over time. Which may be fine, but not exactly what I started out with.
In general, I worry that this newsletter is getting too long. A number of you have written in to let me know the few times when the newsletter was so long that Gmail actually clipped it at the bottom. Obviously would prefer to avoid that…
Curious for some feedback from you, the readers of this! What would you all like to see here? Do you agree that the newsletter is getting too long in general? You can use the feedback/rating thing below to send me some thoughts, or simply respond to this email, of course. 
Thanks in advance. And happy Friday! Lots of links below :)
