The Occasional Email Experience

Figure One: The joy of receiving an email from Neil Hughes

The Neil Hughes Occasional Email Experience is an irregular email which may mildly improve your life.

Submit your email address below and I will send you infrequent, amusing stories.

(Mostly about something idiotic I’ve done lately and what deep wisdom I’ve learned from it.)

As a starting bonus, in your first email, I’ll also send you the opening chapters of Walking on Custard & the Meaning of Life for free.

I’m excited to (occasionally) hear from Neil Hughes via email – sign me up!

Informal Notes On What You’re Signing Up To

Your time is important to me so I’ll describe this briefly:

  • You can expect to receive an email newsletter from me ‘occasionally’; in practice, roughly every few weeks to every few months.
  • The content of these emails can be quite varied, but they tend to be mainly humorous or thought-provoking stories, along with roundups of links to interesting things I’ve found, and articles I’ve written recently.
  • I don’t store any of your data myself: at the time of writing I am using Mailchimp to manage my email list, which means they will store the data you provide on my behalf.
  • Naturally, you can unsubscribe at any time – an unsubscribe link is provided in every email.
