If you're reading this right now, you're early. I'm still in the "development" phase on the Ungated newsletter.
Truth is, newsletters have exploded in popularity since I got into the game in 2015. Back then, curating the best of other people's content was immensely valuable, because so few people were doing it.
But man, since those days, curation as a strategy has taken off. In 2020, it feels like everyone and their mother has a curated newsletter.
Why am I telling you this?
Well, one of the core principles of the Ungated path is that in order to be worthy of attention online, you have to be different or better in some way that's meaningful to your niche.
Point being, making yet another curated newsletter isn't in the cards for me. It's not good enough.
So right now, I'm rethinking my newsletter format (and philosophy) entirely, and focusing on building something that's truly one-of-a-kind in this space.
I don't know what it'll look like yet, which scares me a little. But I can promise that whatever I come up with will be worth your time.
If you care about creating true fans, and building a business around meaningful creative work, this'll be a list worth subscribing to.
So if you're willing to take a leap of faith, here's a fancy form where you can be one of the first subscribers.
