We put a lot of effort at iDoneThis into our content, because we write about what we care about: productivity, teamwork, creativity, and happiness at work. But as we quickly found, while quality content is vital, its life is incomplete without distribution, the pumping of publishing’s heart.

In these busy times, it’s as easy as blinking to miss one of our pieces amidst the fast current of content and an ocean of a squillion blog posts. We knew we could do a better job of delivering the best of our content to people who care about the same topics we do. So for us, the newsletter is the missing piece of the content network puzzle that somehow got lost under the couch cushions.

We’re particularly excited about the prospect of doing a better job of developing an iDoneThis community. The thing is, email is people. While spammingly and carelessly abused as a communication method, email can still be done well. And when it is, it can be a quieter channel that knocks on your door and leaves some homemade muffins for you if you’re not home.
