I kinda just need an email to send out for my first subscribers, so I guess I'll talk a little bit about why I'm doing this....
I'm trying to step away from Social Media ((I'm just proofreading this and I've no idea why I capitalised that but it kinda adds it's own emphasis so I'm leaving it)) which has been really unproductive and negative for me over the last couple of months. BUT I know some people follow me online for updates about my various musical projects. And I also like to share stuff that other people have made that I think is good.
I wanted to start a newsletter so I can send these updates in an easy to digest format for people who want them. I'll probably include gig listings, what I'm working on, maybe some behind the scenes recordings, stuff I'm listening to etc etc. I guess it'll be like a condensed version of the shows and (neglected) blog pages on my website. I'll probably replace the blog on there with an archive of these emails. (Actually the whole site needs an update and I've been super inspired by sites made by friends I've met over on Scuttlebutt - glyph, Séan, Zach and Scott)
((Also... if you're wondering what on earth is a Scuttlebutt you can read an article I read about my adventures as a n00b in the decentralised web in this zine))
