This is the third year I’ve been doing this email. Holy moley.

In the spirit of ‘holidays’, just a quick ‘thank you’ to you, my most favorite people who let me invade their inboxes every morning with information I deem relevant. Most days I still can’t wrap my head around it. You have my sincerest appreciation, especially those of you who have been around since the earliest days. And let’s not kid ourselves, I couldn’t do it without you all shamelessly promoting me to new folks and constantly sending me things you deem relevant. So, Thank You!! Here’s to another year of keeping you smarter, savvier, and a little bit cooler than all your friends. Cheers!
