I’ll be going ‘solo’ with my newsletter in less than two weeks. I’m excited by this fact and I hope others in my class are too. We’ve all put great time and thought into our original ideas and came out with fantastic solo newsletters.

I spent time listening to the Media Voices podcast and was able to relate to Casey Newton, creator of the newsletter Platformer, right off the bat.

Newtown said that his mindset shifted when he started to believe in the value of his individual writing. Lucky for him, he got to…

As we progress through Media Entrepreneurship, I find myself connecting the lessons I’m learning in assigned readings and TED Talks to various aspects in my life.
