Newsletters! I write, and have written, a variety of newsletters. It can be confusing. Here they all are, listed out, in an effort to make sense of the jumble.
Some 40,000+ folks subscribe to these freggin' things.
Currently Active Newsletters
Roden (monthly) — November 2012- (86 issues) My longest running newsletter; most general, usually blabbing about things: literary, photographic, film-related, humidity, walking, and more
Ridgeline (weekly-ish) — January 2019- (176 issues) My weekly walking-related email; originally, walking all over the world, but because of COVID, has been almost entirely Japan focused since 2020
SP Notes (few times a month) — January 2019- Members-only newsletter; mainly used for announcing members-only livestreams, product launches, discounts, members-only interviews, and more
Nightingalingale (daily-ish) — September 2021- A members-only daily diary about the writing / editing / production of my next book; originally only 21 days long, but now extended in chunks, indefinitely (until book publication?)
