About Things That Have Caught My Attention
Hello. I started newslettering in January 2014 on Tinyletter. That’s a long time ago! Let’s see if I can start again.
My newsletter was—is!—called Things That Have Caught My Attention.
That’s because it’s about things that have caught my attention.
Here’s how I described it over five years ago:
I've been vaguely programatically dumping out my Twitter favorites, Instapaper to-reads and Pinboard bookmarks on my blog for a while, and I thought I'd experiment with a daily newsletter that requires me to actually put some thought into what I'm promiscuously sharing and thinking about. Also, I want to practice my writing, and this seems a good way to get into a habit. You can see some of the types of things that interest me at https://danhon.com/
Get all the Things
If you subscribe, you’ll get all the Things that have Caught my Attention as I write about them. It’s not really any more complicated than that.
My joke is that I have over 2,500 subscribers and they can’t all be misguided. To the continuing amusement of my therapist, I remain surprised at the kind of people who subscribe to my newsletter.
