About the Newsletter
I want this to feel like a good old fashioned slumber party. Come on in, take your shoes off. Put on your coziest pajamas and let’s watch our favorite episodes of Buffy. My mom went to Costco and got the good chips and dip, and tomorrow morning we’re having waffles. Tell me all your secrets and I’ll tell you mine. Let’s braid each other’s hair and talk about boys. Or girls. Or dogs. Or the crippling feeling that maybe this is all there is.
In more concrete terms, this is a weekly-ish newsletter that consists of curated recommendations and careful musings on culture, lifestyle, nostalgia, the internet, and how they all intersect.
And sometimes photos of my dog, who knows.
Free vs. Paid
Free subscribers will receive two newsletters a month, on the first and third Thursday. These newsletters will always be chock full of thoughtfully curated things to read, watch, listen to, do and explore across the internet.
Paid subscribers will receive one newsletter a week (four a month), every Thursday. You’ll also be able to browse the entire back catalog of newsletters, essays, posts and stories. Plus, you’ll get VIP access to various special projects, essays, roundups, and other things I have coming down the pipeline for this community.
Regardless of your subscription level, you’ll never see ads, affiliate links or sponsored content here. That’s what my blog is for. ;)
But Wait, There's More is a reader-supported publication. To receive new posts and support my work, consider becoming a free or paid subscriber.
About the Author
I’m Lizzie Campbell – corgi mom, interior design enthusiast, lifestyle blogger, and a pleasure to have in class. By trade I’m a graphic designer, but I’ve been a writer at heart since I first learned how to hold a pencil.
In 2013, I was a burnt out college freshman with undiagnosed ADHD and a journalism major I picked at random because Rory Gilmore made it sound cool. I started a blog one night on a whim, sitting on the floor of my dorm room eating leftover pizza and watching Doctor Who.
That blog turned into a side-job that helped pay for college classes and rent, then my first and second full time jobs, then eventually into my own creative studio and business. You can read the full story here.
I’ve been an observer, curator and casual archivist of the world around me for as long as I can remember. Around 2005-ish, the world around me turned into the world wide web, and I’ve been online ever since.
Blame it on the ADHD or just a natural curiosity, but I’ve had about 3002 interests, hobbies, side hustles, and hyperfixations in my nearly-30 years of personhood.
All my marketing training, blogging experience and brand strategy knows that to be “successful” on the internet, you have to narrow down to a specific niche. My entire personality has been resisting that since I started blogging 10 years ago.
So this newsletter is sort of the antidote to that. A place where I can share things I love, whether they “fit” the theme or not. Where I can talk about 90s sci-fi and 70s music and the Y2K revival and the realities of being in your thirties (okay, I’m 29, but I’m planning ahead here).
I’m excited to see where it all goes.
You won’t have to worry about missing anything. Every new edition of the newsletter goes directly to your inbox.
