Jamie's list celebrates 4 months! 🥳
Wow, you all! Can you believe it’s been four months of Jamie’s list?
Shout out to the people who are supporting the list with a paid subscription. It genuinely helps. Shannon and I are a married pair of working artists. No trust fund, no rich uncle, no previous job in tech that we cashed out from twenty years ago — we make our living by engaging a community of people around music and ideas. If you’re reading this, you are by definition an integral part of that community — if you’re able, please also be part of supporting the work.
Here are the most-read Jamie’s list posts for the last month:
Interestingly, these posts are also my top 5 most read posts, period, at a scale that can’t simply be explained by subscriber growth. Either I’m getting better at writing these or you’re getting better at sharing them. Whatever the case, thank you for sharing these, and keep it up!
In fact, speaking of which, here’s a challenge. If you can’t support the list with a paid subscription, forward a favorite post to a musician friend with a personal message about why you think they’d appreciate it. I mean, ideally, do both? But spreading the word helps too.
Thanks everyone — jamie
