I’ve always been a little vague in my mind about whether my daily writings are emails, blog posts, or something else.
My workflow is to publish to WordPress and have it auto-send to my email subscribers (you) via ConvertKit and RSS.
I also share it in the Mindshare community to engage in conversations with members when they find topics interesting.
So does that mean my posts are blog posts, emails, or community content?
In my mind, I’m writing letters to my subscribers.
They’re conversational. Designed to get you thinking about one core idea without a lot of fluff. It’s almost like a running dialogue with you, my reader.
If I wrote with the intention of creating blog posts, they would take a much different form and serve a different function.
The medium forms the message.
Start with the intended medium and let the format flow from there.
