Your guide to BRIGHT benefits, changes, and more
I am excited to bring BRIGHT to you via Substack! Over the last few weeks I’ve been exploring all that it has to offer, as well as talking to many of you about additional content and voices.
The daily BRIGHT email will continue to be part of a free subscription.
As a paid subscriber, you’ll get the daily email and other BRIGHT community benefits, including:
Subscriber-only posts from me and guest contributors
Post comments and connect with the BRIGHT community
Full access to the BRIGHT archive
Wellness Wednesday video post to help your body, mind, and spirit from a personal trainer and coach
The BRIGHT shopping guides — always our most popular feature around all holidays, including lists that focus on veteran-owned businesses, American made products, and more!
BRIGHT monthly book club and other virtual events with BRIGHT content creators
More to come!
In order to expand the BRIGHT community, bring in more voices and content creators, I’m taking advantage of Substack’s subscription model. When I started BRIGHT in 2016, I was very fortunate to have a generous sponsor to defray my costs and pay writers. It’s important to me that writers and other content creators get paid for their work and Substack’s subscription model will allow me to do that as it grows.
BRIGHT readers, I’m leaving comments open on this post so you can share your ideas for content or benefits you’d like to see.
Some ideas I’m kicking around for paid subscribers: receiving BRIGHT earlier, receiving the daily BRIGHT as a podcast or video in addition to the email, mini workouts or yoga sessions, interviews with authors and other newsmakers.
Subscribe and share!
I really enjoyed reading BRIGHT content from various writers each day. I especially loved, "getting to know" each of them and their personalities/points of view through their writing. I'm going to miss reading from Kelsey Bolar on Thursdays! Will they be back?
