Well, Mailchimp (for example) “loads a tiny, transparent image into each campaign, and counts how often the image is loaded among the delivered campaigns. The image is invisible to your subscribers.”
By the way, fun fact, if you upgrade your Mailing plan to “Fight Club Membership,” you can make this invisible…
GQ has its famous ten essentials series, ten things their favorite people can’t live without. They love them, they need them, and they travel everywhere with them.
Here are the ten things I can’t have sex without. I love them, I need them, but I don’t travel everywhere with them because I mostly have sex in my bedroom. And my collection of sex-toys is too large to be transported anywhere.

When it comes to feedback on your writings, it’s plain wrong.
As a writer, you know how much courage it takes to hit publish and how easier it can be to keep your words hidden in the drawer, under invoices for additional safety. That’s why you don’t want to ask for feedback, for fear of showing your writings. And that’s why you need feedback, to be confident enough to put your (reviewed) writings out there.
There are many ways to give yourself feedback as a…
I love my family, even the cat that my partner and sons wanted (not me). And I could write at length about them. But today, I want to share how I deal with the constraint because family life is a constraint for all of its members (even for the cat).

Today is Sunday, but I woke up early. I wanted everything to be silent and didn’t want my family to see me.
6 AM. I expect the streets to be empty, but for a few partygoers going back home at this time of the day.
I like to cross paths with them. They’re always cheerful, clapping, or offering high fives. They’re as disconcerted as me to see how diametrically different the lives of people can be. I’m the serious and healthy version of their carefree and fun selves.
