For over a year, STH has run a weekly newsletter. Every Saturday, the best of STH is delivered directly to our subscriber’s inboxes. Being frank with our readers, I was not sure we would be able to keep up a weekly pace when we sent the first few newsletters. This is something I do personally every week even when traveling. Since we started the newsletter, STH has grown to include more writers. That has enabled us to cover more companies and increase our review cadence considerably. In 2019, we are now running at over twice the number of reviews per week that we did in 2018. Subscribing to the STH weekly newsletter is an easy way to stay atop of the news.
What is in the STH Newsletter and how are features chosen?
You can check out our latest edition here for a flavor. The STH Newsletter has settled on a format that has three basic sections:
- Recap of the week
- Top five stories of the week
- A preview of the STH content plan for the next week
Each week I reflect upon what we covered that I felt had the biggest industry impact.
Then there are the top five stories over the past seven days in the STH Newsletter. Over time, this section turned into my top 5 picks from the week. In 2018 when STH averaged around two reviews per week, we usually featured those reviews plus a few exciting pieces of news. Now that we are doing, on average over four reviews per week as I noted in my STH Q1 2019 Update A Letter from the Editor, and we are covering more trade shows and events, this has become an even more challenging task.
Finally, I like to add a little preview of what is coming on STH the following week. Sometimes cannot hint at embargoed news, but usually, at the end of the newsletter, I try to add a few hints about big industry events and upcoming content on STH. This week, we are going to see a slew of announcements during Computex 2019.
Subscribe to the STH Newsletter
Subscribing to the newsletter is easy. Here is the form.
We are not selling your e-mail addresses and MailChimp is managing everything at this point so you can subscribe and unsubscribe from the list as you want.
I hope this is a useful way to keep current on STH even if you do not have time to drop by every day.
As an extra nugget, STH is preparing for its 10th anniversary on June 8, 2019. In two editions, we are going to have a fun one.
