All I require in exchange is your email address and your first-born child.
Once I’ve got your email address, I’m going to send you way-too-personal-for-the-blog insights into my life and work a couple of times a month.
Millions of* people have told me they’re the only emails they look forward to opening/read all the way to the end/would sacrifice their first-born child for.
Once I’ve got your first-born, I’m going to raise it to do my bidding and possibly dress it up in tiny versions of my own clothes.
But I’m pretty stylish, so I don’t think you should worry too much about that.
Thanks for consistently putting good shit in my inbox. You are literally the only newsletter type thing I read all the way to the end every time.
Rock on girl, I appreciate you.
Just wanted you to know that in attempting to get a new biz idea off the ground – I’ve watched loads of slimy webinars and signed up for probably 40 email lists – you’re the first to get my real email address instead of my spam account in months. Looking forward to watching you be you and feeling inspired to just be me.
ARE WE THE SAME PERSON?
Karen, I’ve been a fan of yours for a while now and I love your intolerance for all things bullshit.
But this email. Well, I had to respond. Thank fuck I am not the only person who is intentionally not busy and doesn’t want to be up 32 hours a day hustling to become a six-figure entrepreneur because it will empower me. Vom.
Anyway, thanks for being alive and dishing out your good shit. Fan for life.
This mail is an impulse – I just had to tell you that I love reading your emails! I love your honest voice and always find something to think about from you.
No matter how you modify your business, I hope you’ll continue to write to your subscribers (well, I’m a fan actually!). I can almost hear many of them join me as I say – We Love You!!
Sending you epic best wishes,
I really needed this one today.
Feeling overwhelmed by life, I was busily unsubscribing from email lists, and your words jumped out at me. Clearly I didn’t hit that unsubscribe link as I had planned to.
You’re awesome and I just wanted to send a rare email (I almost never do) just saying for you to keep being you in all your honest and shit-kicking way.
Just wanted to say that I love your emails! They’re entertaining and include useful stuff that I actually want to read. So it’s the only one out of all the emails I’m signed up to that I actually look forward to opening.
You’re awesome, Karen. I love your emails and admire your vulnerability. I appreciate what you do!
You’re flippant, funny, and totally awesome. I enjoy your adventures and insights.
Thanks for all.
You’re totally honest and I love to read and feel what you’re going through as a professional writer. It’s no fairytales and other crap how beautiful and easy everything is. I see how you change your mind, how you struggle and find your answers. It just reminds me – I am not different. We are all humans.
You are one of the few newsletter emails I subscribe to and actually read because you are real, honest and share your personal struggles.
I read every email. Your emails aren’t just ‘Hey, here’s my new post/course/e-book/webinar!’ You actually talk about being human, and your general experience as a person trying to run an online business. I suppose most people (myself included) would feel too embarrassed to build a brand that way. We’re always told that our professional appearance should be more buttoned-up. Which means no swearing, no talking about the meaning of life and definitely no admitting to staying in your pyjamas all day.
I love getting your emails. When I started freelance writing and blogging, I subscribed to a bunch of blogs that I liked. They all send way too many emails, except for you! I LOVE getting your emails because they make me laugh, and they come just enough to keep me updated on everything you have been up to. When I get emails from one blog too much I just end up deleting them without reading them, but yours are perfectly spread out. It gives me a chance to go back and read all the blogs I missed and other stuff you like to share, which is always appreciated :)
Love getting your emails! I read yours more than any other I subscribe to, and I think there are a couple reasons why. You don’t post too often, so your emails stay special. I look forward to reading about what you’ve been up to, the good and the bad, and the strategies you’ve put in place. You talk to me like a friend, not a high and mighty perfect expert, and I like that you don’t use bullshit jargon or try to guilt me into buying things or use any of that clickbaity crap. Also love the other helpful links you include at the bottom of your emails. Keep up the awesome work! Xx
