Newsletter Crew September 28, 2020

Share your newsletter, let's grow together!

Richard Awoyemi @RichAwo

Hey fellow hackers,

I've just posted about my newsletter an hour ago on LinkedIn and got my first 30 subscribers (yay me)!

But it got me thinking; I struggle to find material from other Indie Hackers - some of which, I'm sure I would occasionally love to share.

So thought it would be good if everyone could post a one-liner about their newsletters and the respective link, then it would help with discoverability. I'll start:

✍️ Summarising: 📚 + 💭 + 🧠 about entrepreneurship, startups and life.
🔗 https://thestartup.substack.com/

You'll very likely get at least one new subscriber! 😉

Edit: Thanks for all the responses, trying to make my way through them as quick as I can. Great community!
