I thought I’d mention here that in lieu of blogging, I’ve taken to devoting my time to the creation of Field Notes, my monthly e-newsletter.
I think you’d like it.
Each month on the 20th, subscribers receive a personal not-available-anywhere-else exclusive essay from me (like an old-fashioned blog post!) as well as links to all of my writing or podcasting over the past month, the secret monthly “Five Good Things” feature with 5 inspiring or funny or fierce or lovely things I am into at the moment, the occasional giveaway, links I wanted to share, a monthly “Women Worth Following” feature, and other fun things.
Field Notes has become one of my favourite ways to connect with you and I genuinely enjoy putting Field Notes together for you every month. I think it’s pretty special but you don’t have to believe me… here’s what subscribers have to say:
“My friends and I always look forward to seeing Field Notes pop up in our inbox. My favourite text message I get each month is, “Sarah Bessey. Inbox. NOW.”
“Getting it in my inbox is like opening the best surprise package each month. I love that it’s not just repeat blog/social media material, but is a true standalone set of word-centric goodies. I love how you merge the sublime with the silly (fun links and GIFs!) and I love your book recommendations.”
“When I get your email, I save it for a free moment, grab a cup of tea, settle in and read and bookmark your suggestions and recommendations. It’s the highlight of my weekend.”
“This is the only email newsletter I read on the regular!”
“I appreciate your mix of deep soul-searching wisdom and funny.”
“It touches my heart and makes me laugh and cry every. single. time.”
“Reading Field Notes feels like we are sitting down together for a cup of coffee.”
“The 20th is my favourite morning to wake up!”
“I savour your Field Notes each month – love how it’s packed with so much!”
“My only complaint is that I wish it came more often.”
I know we’re all busy and so I don’t want this email to be just “one more thing” in your email inbox so instead Field Notes is more like a newsy note from a friend, as well as a blessing and an encouragement to you. It’s an email to savour over an evening read. It’s always too long and too full of good links, too.
After you submit this form, you’ll receive a confirmation email. Just click on that link when it lands in your inbox and you’ll be all set and ready to go.
Make sure you add my email address to your “trusted” list – otherwise this email might end up in your spam folder every time it goes out.
See you on the 20th,
