Note I acknowledge that creating this kind of top-list can create a filter bubble. People subscribe to the top-ranked newsletters because they’re popular, which perpetuates their popularity in a virtuous cycle. But for those below the threshold, it’s a vicious cycle. To help combat this ‘popularity’ filter, Letterlist is all about sharing great newsletters from emerging publishers and under-rated indie publishers. Rather than perpetuate elitism, we believe that newsletters can democratise publishing. That’s the real purpose of what we’re doing here.
