#52 How your blog can pull you into the kind of work you want to do (and for more money)

In this newsletter, I’ve so far avoided the topic of blogging – even though this newsletter is really a blog.

And, that you’re dedicated to understanding the issues that they’re facing, so your work fits their reality?

One way to do this is through what I call “anniversary newsjacking” content.
