Builder’s Report #4 - 4nd Week May 2020
It surprised me a little that I've arrived to a full month with an email newsletter (and a blog). The first one was cobbled together around 7 PM Sunday because it felt appropriate to have one. Writing this is so different from a blog post. I had grand plan to move to Buttondown thanks to Andrew Kamphey’s urging. But I didn’t have the time block to figure out a new more complex platform. So Substack still wins from ease of use, darn it.
These are notable things I’ve found on the internet.
- The Best of Matthew Kobach: Big Ideas From His Last 3,000 Tweets
- On How to be Discovered
- How to promote your blog when you have less than 100 subscribers
- Really Good Emails
- Ribbonfarm - WARNING! Highly dangerous of losing hours here
What do you think of a links section? Let me know with a reply to this email.
This week I’ve published more blog posts than ever before. Will this continue to be sustained? Or will I get to longer posts but less frequent? Become superman and do both? Though I’m back to reading longer form essays and manifestos I still haven’t graduated to writing those. Well, only real learning by doing after all.

I have a feeling next week’s blogs would be quite interesting. I’m starting to learn and apply in more fields than before, lets see how that works. Hopefully I get to fully experiment on the move to Buttondown as well.
