We consume a lot of content.
The equivalent of 34gb of data, 100,500 words or 174 newsletters a day.
Sure, as a creator, it sometimes feels necessary. Consuming content gives us inspiration for our own work, it helps us to feel less alone on the creator journey, and it gives us the knowledge to fuel our online growth.
But to get to the good stuff, you have to filter through the cluttered mess left by Lady algorithm. That’s a lot of time you end up wasting.
So, why not get the good stuff delivered straight to your inbox?
I know you’re probably thinking, “I don’t need another email that I delete without reading”. But, if you find the right newsletter, it’s like receiving everything you needed without knowing you needed it in the first place. Isn’t that better than having to spend hours scouring through the noise of the internet?
We’ve rounded up the newsletters worthy of sitting in your inbox. From growing as a creator, freelancing, storytelling and work-life balance, there’s a bit of everything here.
But they all have one thing in common – they’ll help you to level up as a creator whilst keeping your spark alive.
1. World Builders by Nathan Baugh
TL;DR weekly frameworks to make you a better storyteller
Being a better storyteller makes you a better creator, founder and marketer, so regardless of where you are in your creator journey, this newsletter is super relevant. With issues like, “You’re a wizard, Harry”, Nathan takes the magic of movies and books you know and love to deliver you with frameworks to transform you into a storyteller. You’ll also receive resources and tips to up your game.
2. Internetly by Alice Lemée
TL;DR biweekly tips on being a prolific creator & freelancer
Internetly delivers curated finds and lessons on being a prolific creator and freelancer, written by a content and copywriter working within the creator economy. In one recent issue, Alice talks about overcoming guilt whilst chasing late invoices, amending contracts and having endless back and forth communication with clients. Doesn’t that sound familiar?. As Alice says, “Whenever you think you're being "annoying", remember you're just running a business.”
But it’s not all business and prolific creation. Internetly has a personal touch, intertwining Alice’s online and offline life into lessons on living a more intentional life.
3. The Leap by The Leap
TL;DR weekly tips and stories to help you go full-time as a creator

Promising to only take 5 minutes of your valuable time, The Leap delivers advice, tips and stories from other creators, bringing you all of the reassurance you need as you move away from your 9-5. With past editions like “if you’re looking for a sign to charge more, this is it”, moving forward as a creator suddenly got clearer.
4. Filtered Fridays by Passionfroot
TL;DR weekly resources to help you on your creator journey
Ok, we might be a little biased here, but in our defence, we really do believe in the value of our newsletter.
We want to help you move your business forward without having to add to your already busy schedule. That’s why every Friday, we filter through the noise of the internet to deliver you the five best finds on growing as a creator, managing a business and finding a better creator-work-life balance.
But it’s not all curated content, we also share what we’ve been learning as we build Passionfroot. From dealing with distractions, connecting to our audience, and coping with burnout, it turns out building a creative start up is not too dissimilar from growing as a creator.
5. The Loaf by Creator Bread (Treyton DeVore)
TL;DR weekly money and business content for creators
If you’re a creator who lacks confidence in the business and financial department, consider The Loaf as part of your balanced diet.

These crumbs of business and money advice will feed your creator journey so that you grow into a creator entrepreneur.
6. Snail Mail by Slow Growth (Matt D’Avella)

7. The Tilt

The Tilt helps to turn content creators into content entrepreneurs with curated resources, advice and relevant news on topics like business, money, audience growth, tech and tools. In each issue they also put a creator in the spotlight, giving you a snapshot of what’s making them thrive. This is possibly one of the most in-depth newsletters for creators you can find, with something for everyone no matter how far along the creator journey you are.
8. The Information Creator Economy by Kaya Yurieff
TL;DR creator news four times a week
The Information packs everything to do with the creator economy into one email.

You can only ride the trends if you know the trends!
Emails don’t always have to be annoying
When your inbox gets flooded with so many requests and messages, it takes an email that provides you with value to keep your head above the water.
With the right newsletter in your inbox, you’ll be able to consume content without having to spend countless hours scrolling on social media pretending to be productive. One email can make you a better creator and entrepreneur in even less time.
