#7: The times, they are a changin'

Happy Monday! You may have noticed things looking a little, well, different around here. Starting today, the old BrianGilham.com mailing list is gone, never to be seen again.

Allow me to introduce the Monday Mailer.

I’ve been writing online, in one form or another, for more than 15 years. My goal has always been the same: to share what I know and build a connection with other creatives. Over the last few weeks, I’ve realized that focusing on this mailing list is the best way to accomplish that goal. 

Through the Monday Mailer, I can share my knowledge, passions, and advice with people who are genuinely interested in what I have to say. And it’s a two-way street. If you’re on this list, I want to hear from you. What are you working on? What challenges are you facing? How can I help you?

If that sort of thing doesn’t appeal to you, that’s okay! No hard feelings. You can unsubscribe here.

You can expect a new edition of the Monday Mailer in your inbox shortly. And every Monday, after that. I’ll be exploring many of the same themes I do now: shipping side projects, productivity, and advice on doing your best work.

I’ll still be syndicating content to my website and places like Medium, but the delay is going to be a lot longer. I’m talking weeks, not days. Going forward, when I say I write exclusively for my mailing list I mean it.

That’s it! You can expect the next edition to land in your inbox a week from now. In the meantime, shoot me an email. Tell me what you’re working on and what you’dlike to see from the Monday Mailer in the future.

Until next time,


Brian Gilham Engineering leader, husband, and father-to-be from Toronto
