Elm Weekly - Issue #284
It was brought to my attention last week that is my 100th issue! It doesn’t help that I’m not too attentive to the numbers, but also it really does feel like the past (nearly) 2 years have flown by. I’ve moved states twice. Moved companies once. Lost a loved pet. Gained new friends. Even that I’m likely forgetting.
Over the past 2 years I’ve tried to keep the newsletter as consistent as possible with what it had been. There was one thing I wanted to contribute though, the Jobs section. The primary goal was to help people find jobs that bring them joy (and help to pay the bills). Secondarily to help employers find candidates. I don’t have numbers for how successful this has been though I know it’s helped at least 1-2 people, which brings me a little joy.
I do think we can do better though. If you have ideas of what’s missing from the newsletter or what you’d like more of please reach out to me at email@example.com with your suggestions. If there are parts of the community you don’t see me covering, please tell me. If there are ways I could make the newsletter more accessible for you, please let me know.
Finally, thank you for reading and thank you for creating so much beauty for me to share.
