OH HEY GANG.
So I've been working on this one for a while. There seemed to be a pattern around the middle of last year, when the blogging community were cracking out newsletters, as probably being the only one of my friends who insists on writing them letters with you know actual pens and bits of paper, I was thrilled, but the fad seemed to die out quicker than thick white borders on Instagram feeds and I was left with less and less of them landing in my inbox every week, so here I am, adding my voice to the conversation.
I'll be super clear here, when the fad first started I was about as excited as Jamie Laing in any episode of Made in Chelsea ever (about literally anything ever) and started brainstorming ideas straightaway, but I couldn't get things formed on the computer screen quite as much as I'd like, and so the idea kind of fell to the waist side, to the metaphorical bin where blog ideas go to die. But as I slowly started thinking more and more about what I wanted this idea to be and how I wanted it to take form, the more I realised how EXCITED I was about it, and how I simply needed it to take form, and as a catchy / cringe title (I'll let you decide on that one gang) came to mind, voila, 'You've Got Millie' is born!
What's Going To Be In It?
WHAT A BLOODY GOOD QUESTION EH. The newsletter will open every week with a piece by me, it might be a rambling about how cute sloths are, or why I love pumpkin spice lattes so damn much or 543654 reasons why online dating is a horrible horrible thing and none of us should do it ever. I'll then feature my favourite opinion piece from the week, something that made me think, or feel things and hopefully I'll be able to feature some of the awesomely talented writers that grace my feeds and if you like my content and my writing, there's a high chance you'll love them too! I'll then feature my favourite recipe of the week, along with my top 3 blog posts of the week, the things I'm adding onto my wish list quicker than I can demolish a tequila shot and some other bits and bobs in the forms of my favourite links of the internet that I think you'll love!
Why Should I Subscribe?
