1️⃣ Resource of the week

The Sample: Find your next fav newsletter

I love finding new and content on the internet… but it’s super hard sifting through the noise.

I came across The Sample recently. These guys send you a newsletter each morning with one article from a random blog or newsletter that matches up with your interests.  When you get one you like, you can just hit subscribe to the writer.

I love seeing innovative ways of finding content (outside of the typical social media platforms 👹)

Check it out here and let me know what you think!


2️⃣ Calls to Pitch

I try to ensure these are well-paid. If not, they’re usually helpful in some other way. We range from new writers to those more established, so keep a like to share range of opportunities too
