Issue #200 πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

Yes, we made it to our issue #200! I have to admit the last almost two years have been rough, we tried our best to keep delivering the best possible newsletter about Tesla to you, I hope we got somewhere close to our goal.

Since our first issue on March 29, 2018, we have been sending out this newsletter every week for almost four years and we have skipped only one week in all this time. We started it the week before our second kid was born, talk about not thinking of timing lol, and our second issue we were really sleep-deprived and half of the links were broken. During this time, we have iterated in the format and found our voice but since the beginning, we stayed true to our guiding principles, including news that interest current Tesla owners and future owners, never more than 10 articles, and no stock talk. Our audience has grown to the point that we have over 8K folks opening the newsletter each week and drive around 3,500 clicks to the sources that we include.

We truly hope you enjoy this newsletter. This newsletter is free and by showing up and reading it every week you already bring us joy, but if you want to go the extra mile and support us, convince a couple of Tesla friends to subscribe, give us a shoutout on Twitter or Facebook, or join our group on patrons.

With love and electrons,
Ignacio & Vanessa
