7/16/21 What's Trending This Week?

Good day!

Normally we handpick newsletter issues by independent writers that provide new or unique perspectives.... but our lead researcher/writer (me) is headed out on maternity leave soon so we are exploring some other newsletter content opportunities that aren't quite as time-intensive (but hopefully still as valuable and insightful!).

Luckily this timing also coincides with some new narrowSCALE product features (exciting!) that analyze the thousands of newsletters we receive each week to produce a set of newly emerging and trending topics in newsletters! Over the next few months we'll be sharing these trending terms as well as highlighting some specifically-themed newsletters. 

Thanks for sticking with us until our normal programming resumes! We welcome your feedback on the different types of content and are happy to adjust based on that!

Also, if someone forwarded you this and you'd like to subscribe, you can do that here -- thanks!)

Here's what's trending this week in newsletters...enjoy!
