In an attempt to better communicate with my friends and family, I’ve started a weekly newsletter to let people know what I’m up to. I’ve sensed a hole in Facebook in that it’s difficult to make any sharing feel personal without feeling too exposed to your broader network.
Writing to my friends and family has brought me closer to them. They know more details about what I’m up to which has led to more ideas coming my way, better and more meaningful conversations, and hopefully some inspiration to share in kind.
Maybe worth giving a shot if you haven’t done anything like it.
