If you are reading this, you may be a part of my big goal for June: Rebooting my email list.
I had started my first mailing list called Love Notes two or three years ago. It was fun—once a month I would send a little memo from my life, intended to inspire or motivate any reader to go out and seize their best life. I thoroughly enjoy writing, so it was a great activity for myself as well.
But then, I just stopped. I had to.
The thing about being a solopreneur is that we wear all the hats. Wear too many hats on at one time makes it very hard to see, so some of them have to be removed. As much as I loved my email list and writing for a real audience, I had to let it go. My business had other growing pains that required soothing, so the list was left behind.
As I got a handle on how I operate a photography business and developed some solid systems, I thought I would go ahead and give mail listing another go. This time, though, I’ve tweaked my process. Rather than being just a piece of writing, it will contain lots of additional goodies, such as:
- Freebies to download and enjoy
- Links to my Spotify playlists
- Book recommendations
- A Breakfast Recipe—Brecipe?—now and again
- Special offers for prints and sessions
- Invitations to join me on new adventures (like one coming next month…)
- Other ideas as they spring up (If you have anything you would like to learn about, please let me know!)
I am hoping these new elements bring a little bit of value into your life and a little joy into your days! If that sounds good, please join us for July by singing up here! I look forward to talking to you again soon!
