It’s the first email friendsletter–a newsletter for friends.
As I mentioned in my original post, explaining why I am leaving Facebook, this is intended to be the opposite of the typical email list:
I’ve turned off all the tracking and stats on this account, because it’s not intended to be a list for marketing. It’s just a low tech way for people to keep up-to-date. And if you reply, I’ll answer you back.
I do have access to the subscriber list, but I’m not mentally keeping track of who has signed up. If you unsubscribe, I won’t know. And I’ve turned off all the tracking. Just like friendly emails between people.
My plan is also to make these short! That way, I won’t procrastinate writing them, and you won’t procrastinate reading them.
So my Facebook account will be deleted in 30 days, now that I’ve clicked the button. I removed the app from my devices. I wrote a blog post with some tips if you are thinking about doing the same.
And I got some new photos of me, Grace, and Ada to celebrate! (You might have to click “load images” or something like that to see the photo below.)
Keep in touch,
