Welcome to another exciting edition of The Newsletter Leaf Journal, the official newsletter of the perennially virid online writing magazine, The New Leaf Journal. This newsletter comes to you as always from the waterproof keyboard of the editor of The New Leaf Journal, Nicholas A. Ferrell (well, one newsletter came from my laptop instead of my waterproof keyboard).
Exactly two years ago to the day, New Leaf Journal writer, professional musician, and luthier Victor V. Gurbo published what was the 100th article on The New Leaf Journal. In what has turned out to be a totally unintended coincidence, today marks the 100th edition of The Newsletter Leaf Journal. We would be beyond newsletter 100 but for the fact that I did not send newsletters for several weeks in 2020 and I opted to not send a newsletter on Christmas weekend in 2021. The stars thus aligned to have the 100th newsletter land exactly two years after our 100th article.
100 is a good round three digit number. For that reason, I will try to make our 100th newsletter a special issue worthy of the occasion, mixing our usual newsletter content with some special sections and news and notes. In one special twist, I am publishing this newsletter as an article on The New Leaf Journal (if you are reading it on The New Leaf Journal proper, see our newsletter sign-up options). This is only the third time that I have published a newsletter as an article. On February 5, I published Newsletter 69 as an article on the day that I moved the entire site from Bluehost shared hosting to Hetzner VPS. What was the first newsletter to be published as an article? I explain below…
