This newsletter has come to an end, but I'll be around.
First, thank you. I started this newsletter with a travel-ish theme. Then, I pivoted to more political topics. For the more part, you all stuck with me when you absolutely didn’t have to. Thank you for reading, for commenting, and even taking the time to encourage me. Most of all, thank you for allowing me to explore who I am as a writer (I’ll figure it out one of these days). We were a small group, around 150 regular readers, but your readership really meant a lot to me.
I won’t bore you with all the reasons I’m ending this newsletter. Mostly, I just want a place I can write about any topic that interests me. No niche, just vibes. And, I want to post things that are less polished, with greater frequency. Writing a newsletter, I was always worried about posting too much. I didn’t want to clog up your inboxes.
A couple matters of housekeeping:
Your email addresses: By the time you read this, I would have likely already deleted your email address from Substack and my computer. You can also “unsubscribe” to be doubly sure.
The JasonDotGov blog: I’ll likely keep the blog up so long as Substack allows me to do so. You can find it here: jasondotgov.email
I have a new blog slash digital garden slash notebook thing. You can find it here: fromjason.xyz. Whatever From Jason is, it doesn’t have a niche. But, I do write a lot about technology, design, and freelancing. My catch-all notebook is here: notebook.fromjason.xyz. Here are a couple post examples:
I’m toying with concepts from the old web. Things like RSS and digital gardens. I’m so very close to building a bespoke blog from scratch. I know just enough to know it’ll be hard, but not enough to smartly avoid such a project.
I don’t know where I end up with all this, but that’s the point. Who cares where this goes, as long as it’s going. I hope to see you out in the open web.
So long and thanks for all the fish,
PS— I stole the title of this post from Vesper, Adieu, one of my favorite postmortems about one of my favorite writing apps. Not that this is as noteworthy, just that I thought it was a cool title, having a French word in it and all. I also stole the sign off from Douglas Adams. Take care.
