The Final Pitch

Cyber Monday comes for us all. A reality of working on the internet is that eventually you will be selling … some version of yourself. This is the part of the job I am not very good at. While I’ve found I’m reasonably adept at shameless self-promotion across social media, I’m still sheepish when it comes to asking people to pay for my work. But here’s the deal. Starting tomorrow, The Atlantic’s free trial period for subscriber newsletters is over, and most of Galaxy Brain’s editions will be for paid customers only. If you’re new here in the last month, welcome! There are tons of you (gah!) and that makes me so excited. I want to take a minute to talk about that.
