Okay, I admit it. I have a newsletter phobia.
I delay and delay and delay sending out newsletters, miss opportunities, swoon over my artist friends’ newsletters, stress about it, feel inadequate- you get the picture. But why? Part of it is that I feel invasive sending emails when people are inundated with emails. Part of it is that I have a hard time selling my work. Part of it is that I am a little afraid. When I was young, I heard over and over, “Don’t wear out your welcome.” It went something like this:
Me (4th grade): Mom, can I stay over Kim’s house tonight?
Mom: Well, I don’t know. You might be wearing out your welcome. You’ve been there all day.
(Yikes!) Who wants to do that? I wrote a heartfelt post about this concept here titled, Being Big. I am learning to let my light shine bigger. Truth is, I want my light to shine as bright as possible.
But, good news! I think I had a little breakthrough with my newsletter phobia today. I wrote my newsletter in less than an hour. Wow. And it is lovely.
You can sign up over on the right because I am offering *buy one get one free* this weekend only, for newsletter subscribers along with some new goodies!
And I promise not to overwhelm your inbox now that I am phobia-free. Pinkie swear.
Lots of Love and Sunshine,
