Welcome to the thirteenth edition of The Study Newsletter!
I don't know if you've noticed, but I'm very picky at what articles I recommend in this newsletter.
Not only because I want you to get the best resources available, but also because I'm a big believer that what we consume greatly influences our minds and thus our lives.
But above all, I'm also really picky on what NOT to share here.
Most commonly, in other publications, you'll see links to big sites like the NYC Times or The Guardian. And while the stories in the just mentioned sites are good, I'm 99% certain that I'll never include a link from any of those sites.
Well, first, because everyone is sharing them. And secondly, which is more important to me personally, these institutions are already widely known. They are shared, and re-shared, and shared again. These sites are stuck on the first page of Google like gum stuck on your shoe on a hot summer day that you simply can't get off and you eventually simply learn how to live with. This may not seem like a big deal, but it's making it harder for smaller publications run by individuals to get exposure.
With my newsletter, I don't want to help the big corporation get bigger. I want to share articles from not so commonly visited websites. By doing so, I want to help people who are good writers get more eyes on their articles. Hopefully, this can positively influence their bottom line.
So, if you happen to know sites and writers that are not viral - but still good! - make sure to send them my way.
