Long time no newslettering! Sorry for the long break and lack of communication. I got a little burned out. The combination of having helped Pek with his newsletter for a year and a half (putting out five articles most weekdays) and then transitioning into running a newsletter myself (including making the site, sign up forms, and other logistical stuff) took its toll. On top of that, I was working on other projects, and it all ended up being too much.
Fortunately now I've had a long break, and a good amount of time to think about what I think is important. Pek's newsletter was a big part of my development as a person who writes code. I learned a lot from it, and I want to keep that going for others. At the same time, I've decided to drop two other side projects, so I can focus on my primary work and this newsletter. I've got some ideas on how to improve the worst part of my workflow for this newsletter (formatting stuff), which I'm excited about, but that doesn't affect you so I won't go into the details.
Although it's been a while, not much has changed. Well, other than Mailchimp's UI becoming more unusable. I feel like UI design has somehow managed to get progressively worse for websites since their inception. *INSERT JACKIE CHAN CONFUSED MEME* Well anyway, I won't bore you with any more prologue. Here be dat issue first issue in months me mateeey arggghh.
