How often?


I wanted to do a quick housekeeping update: we’ve redesigned our newsletter (which goes out via email), and we have also added an option to get an email notification after a new post is published as well as a weekly round-up. We continue to offer a daily digest of the day’s posts. You can opt-in to none, a combo, or all, if that makes sense for you. 🙂
