Uncommon insights from community leaders: (New)sletter spotlight 
There are so many great community builders among us. Some of them are also community authors sharing their expertise through new personal mediums: Newsletters. A quick selection of some digital goods, new and tenured:

📬 Max's Community Newsletter: Brought to your inbox by the effervescent Max Pete, his newsletter dives into both the professional and personal angles of what it means to be a community manager.
📬 Tribecrafters: Both a newsletter and a community hosted by James Bohrman, Tribecrafters aims to explore industry trends, its growth, and its future.
📬 Led by Community: Penned by Francisco Opazo, Led by Community highlights "best of" articles, events, and provocative ideas every week. 
📬 The Slack Community Manager's Newsletter: Written with both wit and candor, Kourosh Ghaffari probes deep into the meaning and mechanisms of community management.
📬 Uncommunity: Mohammed Rafy's been collecting and sharing community ideas, learnings, and reflections through Uncommunity for more than two years.

And Rosie. While it's likely you already know about Rosieland and its associated newsletter, forum, and more, it's a gem worthy of highlighting every time.
