What do you want from me?
No, like, literally
As I expand this newsletter (but still keep those personal essays coming, don’t you worry), I’m reaching out to you — yes you, yes the person I’m pointing at right now — to help with a couple new features.
I originally created this newsletter as a sort of walled-off garden. Like here you go, sniff and enjoy, and also: please never talk to me. The biggest shift in how I want to shape this newsletter is to act in opposition to my mostly terrible personality by being more open to interacting with my readers. I mean, these are people who with very few exceptions have been nothing short of lovely, tell me very nice things about my writing, and share their own quite vulnerable stories with me. I am so grateful.
There are a few ways you can help shape what this newsletter will eventually be:
ASK ME ANYTHING!
• Ask me anything about anything. But, like, that doesn’t mean I’m going to answer everything. I won’t answer any questions about my ex-husband or my kids so don’t be a ding-dong.
• You can submit your questions simply by responding to this email. I’m going to experiment with how I deliver my answers — as a written newsletter, or as an audio or video clip. Maybe, additionally, I’ll post them in my Instagram stories? Maybe? Is that terrible? One of you youngs need to tell me.
• Against everyone’s better judgment including my own, I’m going to write an advice column. Disclaimer: Please remember a) I am an idiot. b) I change what I believe about my own life roughly every 7-1/2 minutes c) Do not sue me. YOU WILL LOSE* (*I have no money). Same as with AMA, you can submit your question just by responding to the email that this newsletter arrived in!
WHAT ELSE, WHAT ELSE, WHAT ELSE
• Feel free to make suggestions any time about what you’d like to see more of or, heck, what you’d like to see less of for that matter. You can just comment below or email me. I will also accept a photo of you wearing a sandwich board that’s hand-painted with your suggestion. Hey man, it’s your life.
That’s all for now. Thank you in advance for comin’ at me, bro.
I’m in Portland, Oregon, seeing a bunch of people I love, many people I admire, a few morons, as well as finally meeting new awesome people in the flesh who I’ve only been connected to through social. We are all here to say goodbye to Dan and David. And also, our livers. I will be writing about this experience, and nostalgia in general, in an upcoming newsletter.
Have you upgraded to paid yet? Wondering why you should, who I am, and/or why I switched to paid subscriptions? You can read all about it here.
Thank you to everyone who’s already subscribed! Thanks to all of you who submit a question, make a suggestion, and keep coming along for the ride! You are obviously
suckers amazing and sexy!
