handpicked: a newsletter


Handpicked is a bunch of attention-worthy finds arranged with love in a newsletter, delivered on Wednesday mornings. Each week I collect interesting links, ideas, recipes, art, and stories and fit them together in a thoughtful way to uplift my readers. The purpose of this newsletter is to elevate our media consumption from mindless scrolling to something a little bit better. I'm also a serial sharer (not the same as an oversharer – I don't think I'm one of those). I just love sharing. Even if I had only one subscriber, I'd keep doing this. Handpicked is my passion project. It's also super fun and completely free. There's no catch, it's just something I love doing. You can subscribe here if you're not signed up yet.

This newsletter started on April 14, 2021 and was known as Alex Emails from March 6, 2019 to April 7, 2021.
