Hi all! I’m starting an email list for BetterExplained readers and everyone interested in deep, intuitive learning.
Why Should I Sign Up?
If you like the blog, you’ll enjoy the email list too. I’ll be sharing the insights & techniques that took me from “huh?” to “aha!” on topics in math, programming, and communication. These periodic emails will include:
- Exclusive content & previews
- Short learning tips / essays / additional material that weren’t the right fit for the blog
- Q&A on topics that are bothering you
- Announcements & discounts for BetterExplained products I think you’ll enjoy
The blog explains ideas as I wish they were taught. The email list shares information I wish I’d seen.
Why Start an Email List?
A few reasons:
Email has better interaction. I can write, you can read & reply at your leisure. Social media seems noisy and non-personal — I want a conversation. (I credit Scott Young and patio11 for jump-starting the email idea).
The medium shapes the message. Blog posts are great for long-form, single-topic articles. Email favors shorter, bite-sized pieces. I found myself holding back material because it wasn’t a “blog-fit” (but still valuable!).
Better sustainability. The goal of BetterExplained is to be a lifelong project. Keeping in touch ensures the material stays useful and enjoyable, and that products (like the existing ebook + screencasts) dramatically increase your understanding.
I love blogging and will always write. Email is another method to get quick feedback, with blog posts to distill the final results.
I’m so thankful to have a little corner of the internet to share ideas, and I love hearing about and discussing the aha! moments that made things click. Thanks for staying in touch.
