I’ve been thinking recently about what I’m building with this newsletter. More and more, I find myself treating it like a product. So much so that I actually drew out the workflow I go through and how the flywheel operates. There are fundamentally 2 major components:
I have some similar thoughts. Tried various things including podcast, newsletter (still have it) and blogging (still do), besides Twitter and Linkedin. Content distribution doesn't really work. And eventually I found what I want: writing more is the fun part. These days, I'm also thinking to write every day but publish when I have something valuable and good and distribute across different platforms according to their own strategies. This might work but it's totally against the strategy (and recommendations) of learning writing and getting feedback (by publishing). Think Derek Sivers or David Perell. I know they write every day but not publish regularly. My survivorship bias may be talking here but there are also tons of other people on the other end of spectrum.
This resonates a lot, we're in similar shoes.
