Here is the regular wiki where we can drop in stories, projects, ideas we want sent out.
I would also like to use this space to share tips about how to make our newsletter better, and how to encourage people to join in.
From my research, these are the first things I’d do:
- there is not that much news in a regular week to make it a weekly newsletter - twice a month seems more than enough. We keep the more frequent options for the period when there's tons of activity on the platform.
- we need a signup field with an introduction on the main page, so that people can easily join the newsletter
- shorter titles
- more graphics and some sort of consistency in the design (maybe beyond the header and a short note from the editor) - I basically think some design work here would be beneficial
- carefully selected section headings
- one article not from Edgeryders, but relevant to the topic of the newsletter
