GDPR: I'm starting new mailing lists

Some time ago, I sent out a questionnaire asking about what to do with my newsletter. Most of my readers said I should keep it as it is. Maybe make it a little shorter. I’ve not quite followed up on it. I’ve more or less stopped sending out newsletters and have mostly just been busy doing my work for Kickstarter, then recovering from the intense experience, and traveling around to visit friends. I also got a dog.

Needless to say that since going freelance in 2014, a lot has happened. I’ve not only worked with clients such as Hanzo, RubyCup, Veganz and many others but have also published three guides for freelance creatives and uploaded several classes useful to freelancers to Skillshare.

Now with the upcoming deadline of the GDPR, I felt like it’s time for a spring clean. I just spent five full days clearing and sorting out all my data. You won't find anyone whose Dropbox is as orderly as mine :)

I’ve also forced myself to discontinue and delete the projects I once started, but fizzled out. I’ve also decided to play it safe and restructure my mailing lists; in other words, delete all existing ones and start new ones. 

If you wish to receive emails from me in the future, please sign up to one or both of the following:

Newsletter for freelancers

Will be similar to the one I’ve been sending out until about a year and a half ago. Subscribers to this list will receive my articles about freelance life. I will also share life hacks as I go and develop my career. Over the years, I’ve received a lot of positive emails and would like to continue sending out those updates in the future. Additionally, should I launch a new project or learn about a new service I think is of value to you, I will share it with you as well.

 

Newsletter on community strategy

This is a list I will use to share case studies and updates I believe are of value to my past clients or people who would like to become my clients eventually. You’ll learn more about the day-to-day of my business and about the events I’m participating in. I might also share links to articles, projects, and work or products of others I consider noteworthy. I’m also going to share step-by-step articles on all the things I’ve done as a freelancer to get ready for GDPR.

I’d also love to take this opportunity and invite you to connect with me on LinkedIn. I hope that one day we’ll get to work on a project together. That would be wonderful!
