How to subscribe to my mailing list
I announce new articles via email AND I might also include a few extras from time to time. Of course, I never share your email address with anyone and you can unsubscribe at any time.
Never Miss an OverExamined Life Article
If you want to be sure to NOT miss anything I write, this is the place to do it. You'll get about 2 emails a month.
Note: If you've signed up for ANY of my offers, you are already on this list.
A few things you might be wondering
…and answers thereto
Q: Why did I quit getting your emails?
A: Because I respect your time and attention, and when you don’t give me any for several months (meaning you don’t open my emails), I might remove you from my list. Just sign up again above…and start opening them!
Q: How long does it take to write these long articles?
A: A long time. I have an exhaustive checklist-driven process for writing. From outlining through post-publication optimizing and promotion, it takes weeks. Much of that time is taken by letting the piece sit for a week or more at various stages, which unfailingly makes it much, much better.
As Justice Louis Brandeis said: “There is no great writing, only great rewriting.” Truth.
Q: Why are you such a bad artist?
A: You have mistaken my distinctive style, honed over years of idle doodling, with fine art. It’s not meant to be good for gazing at, just good for illustrating concepts. Sometimes my concepts aren’t even clear to me until I draw a picture.
Q: Do you accept guest posts? Link requests?
A: No, I never accept these. I’d really appreciate it if you would not contact me about it.
Q: Do you accept advertising?
A: Again, no. Not my thing.
