Hi there! Next week, Garbage Day is going on a little vacation. I’ll be back the week of September 20th! When I get back, the plan is to start talking to folks about commissioning some guest posts and I’m planning on doing more video stuff! Both of which I’ve very excited about!
Also, let me just say, the fact that I’m even able to go on vacation is such a testament to how amazing the last year has been for Garbage Day. Without you, my readers and subscribers, this wouldn’t even be possible. Also, if that last sentence has suddenly inspired you to subscribe lol, think about it! It’s $5 a month or $45 year and you’ll get lots of fun stuff, like bonus issues, live event discounts, and Discord access.
If you’re interested supporting Garbage Day another way, you can grab a T-shirt from the merch store or buy an NFT, which basically gives you all the Garbage Day benefits at once, plus you get a cool piece of digital swag if that’s a thing you’re into. And if you’re looking for more Garbage Day-related content while I’m offline next week, check out The Content Mines podcast. This week’s episode is pretty good!
Right, ok, so here’s the deal.
I have a big Google Doc that I collect links with. Every time I see something interesting in my travels around the web, I put it in there. And then when it comes time to write the newsletter, I clear out the most recent links and put my little email together. But there’s always too much stuff to cover. Substack has a size limit and if you go over it, your email clips. And links really add up! Which means I’ve ended up with pages of links going all the way back to March.
So, today, to make sure you all have enough content to tide you over until I get back from vacation, I decided I’d just cut to the chase and give you every single still-active (and relevant) link I had in my Google Doc. Hopefully, this will be enough content for you animals.
