Why is this interesting? - The 100th Contribution Edition

On WITI, contributors, and community

Noah here. Tuesday’s Punk Edition marked the 100th contributed WITI (not counting Monday Media Diets). To celebrate I wanted to list out all 100 with a special thanks to both all those who have written for us over the last year-and-a-half and, of course, to all of you who have read, replied, and shared this newsletter along the way. Both Colin and I have a lot of pride in what we’ve built up and particularly that it’s become a place that interesting people feel comfortable bringing interesting ideas. 

As we’ve mentioned in the past, we’re always open to new contributors and all you need to do is either reply to this email or fill out our contact form with ideas. We’ll send you back the Contributor’s Guide and everything should roll from there. Outside of just writing, we’ve also got a Slack for contributors that is full of interesting conversations.

And, of course, if writing isn’t your thing that’s cool too. Thanks for opening this every day and we’re always grateful for a share to someone else you think might enjoy whenever you’re up for it.

Onto the list: here are all 100 contributions. Do go back and read the ones you might have missed and give the contributors a follow, they’re all interesting folks. (Also, I’ve done my best to keep this list accurate, but if you contributed something you don’t see, please let me know and I’ll fix it.)
