Founding Mother, Chard & Stripes

This isn’t a slick trick to get more subscribers.

It’s simply to let you know that although Chard & Stripes is on the back burner while I focus on my village work, I’m still sending tidbits to my people by email most weeks. For now, I’m a one-woman show and it hasn’t been a priority to add the stories here.

So sign up if you want them.

My list is tiny but my open rate is mighty:

Just shy of 60% compared to an average email open rate of about 20% across industries.

One reader recently said,

“I really enjoy your Chard Mail newsletters. …it’s about the only newsletter I even read, and I look forward to it when I see it in the inbox.

It’s like a little treat, and [I] often save it for the right moment to appreciate it.”

You too can get little treats in your inbox by signing up here.
