Awesome! You've got one more step.

Go check your inbox (right now) to confirm that it really was you and not some spammy spammer who signed up using your email address.

I'm thrilled to have you as a reader! But before we get started, I need your help with a quick click on the link that was automatically sent to your email address. Confirming your subscription through that link lets my ESP (that's "email service provider") know that you're an active reader. It means you'll be more likely to receive the emails from me that you said you wanted, instead of them being sent to your spam folder.

It shows your genuine interest, allowing me to personalize your experience and connect you with the community I'm building.

So, off you go! Go click that link in the email and let the magic begin!
