Getting Started

When I started Perspectives on New Year’s Day 2021, I didn’t have many clear expectations. I started writing as a way to record my thoughts and work through my thinking. It is incredible how much Perspectives has grown since then. There are more than 9000 subscribers, and I have posted every week (except four) since.

It has gotten harder to find content, so I wanted to share a list for those looking for a place to start.
