Welcome to The Jumble 🙋🏻♀️
My newsletter's got a new home!
Hey, Jessie here.
And then you
got suckered into subscribed to my email list. We became buddies.
But then I stopped writing for a while because I had a baby, and my husband went through an intensive surgery process, and we moved across town, and life is one giant carnival of crazy so HERE WE ARE.
Bottom line: I'm so happy you're still around 🥰
Anyway, I've moved this newsletter over to Substack
That's right—while you were sleeping, I packed up you and all the other lovely subscribers in a big cardboard box and brought you over to the new digs. (I hope it wasn't too bumpy of a ride? I added lots of bubble wrap, but then I couldn't stop popping it...)
Substack is a newsletter platform that hosts each entry like a blog post. I was previously using ConvertKit—and while I love their tools for creators, Substack is a better fit for what I need right now.
Welcome to our new home
This newsletter has a name now!
The Jumble is a newsletter about life's messiness—and how, perhaps, to navigate it. It's the beginnings of a community. A meeting place for those who want to make meaning in the mess.
At the end of the day I’ll still be talking about the same sort of topics I always have (life experiments, career choices, creativity, etc.). But now we have a true gathering place to take the discussion deeper.
A few things you can expect from this newsletter moving forward:
Life lessons from a marketer-turned-writer-turned-parent (me) who continually blows up and rebuilds her life (in a good way)
Occasional thoughts on kids, costume-making, home DIY projects, and other hobbies that make life fun
Book, article, and podcast recommendations
Quality over quantity (…which is my clever way to tell you that I cannot commit to any kind of a consistent publishing schedule yet. Any complaints can be sent to the 5-month-old currently screeching on my lap.)
For now, this newsletter is entirely free. I love to make my best stuff widely accessible. But there’s certainly room for a paid tier in the future, perhaps? Stay tuned ;)
And finally, if this is in your inbox, you're already subscribed. Lucky you! But if you're reading this on Substack, you can join us here:
So please make yourself at home. I'm still unpacking over here, but I think there's some hot chocolate in the pantry? Get cozy, and I'll be back here soon.
