Hello, friends!

Check out this week’s curation and let me know what you end up subscribing to 🀞

⚑ Spotlight


A couple of weeks ago I got a recommendation! Creativerly was mentioned as the person's fav newsletter, so I did my research, created the listing, and reached out to the author.

We spoke about our creative journeys, the ups and downs, and just like that without a mention, he wrote and published a whole feature on Readsom in his newsletter Creativerly. This interaction reminded me why I am doing all of this and how much I enjoy meeting new people!

Creativerly is written by Philipp Temmel, a full-time product designer, writer, and side-project enthusiast. And as described by the most recent 5-star review it’s a “weekly newsletter for creativity and productivity apps and other bite-sized contents around it”.

Think of bundles of helpful tools, apps, and software that will help you read faster, take better notes and beat procrastination to achieve your goals. Philipp provides an extensive review of the tools in question, curates a section for mental health, and shares interesting articles and attention-worthy news.

Check out his latest issue featuring an app for turning your audience into a business, a free mood boarding tool, and subscribe to find a useful tool you never even knew you needed!

☝️ Worth Reading

Per Hakansson, the author of the Fewer Better Things newsletter, aims to help people become conscious consumers, live mindfully, appreciate the small things they have, and realize the impact of their choices.

While researching the newsletter, I came across this interesting article on ‘Tips for The Looming Recession - How to expect the best, prepare for the worst', written through the fewer better things lens.

“The great thing with recessions, especially if you are well prepared, is that they flush out the irrational exuberance, greed, and excess to offer perspective on what really matters in life.” Read the whole article for more insights πŸ’‘
