It's a small thing, but I set up my first cut of a landing page for my UX research newsletter, redirected a couple of old links in content pieces (from way back in 2017), and over this last week I've had 7 organic signups for my free mailing list!
I've written sporadically for years, and should have been collecting email addresses for years. I leaned on the platforms and it was a mistake. Now, each email from the webflow form thing gives me a massive motivation boost.
Like I said, it's small, but it's the first step and I'm stoked to be actually making progress. WEW!!!
