Hope you're having a great week. It’s a busy time of year and I’m sure your inbox is full. I’m keeping this issue brief and taking next week off. Hope you have a great holiday season!
For all the advice out there on “growing an audience” and “leveling up your content,” there’s precious little about the real-world hurdles of writing content that someone might actually want to read. Here are my thoughts.

See you in 2019!
PS - I’m looking to partner with a few great businesses to sponsor this newsletter. It reaches a bunch of smart folks from places like Google, Apple, Spotify, New York Times, Marriott and Harvard. Shoot me an email if you're interested in working together.
PPS - I'm now an official Ghost partner. I've been using Ghost to run my blog for years and I absolutely love it. If you signup for Ghost with my link I do get a commission, but you get an incredibly powerful and simple way to manage your website. Markdown ftw!
