Hello, there.

Welcome to 1 Thing/Week, a newsletter where I feature one thing every week & (attempt to) keep it brief.

Originally started as a Procrastination Project in 2019, 1 Thing/Week took a short little 4.5 year hiatus and was resurrected in 2024 when I was once again desperate for a way to procrastinate the things I actually needed to get done.

What is 1 Thing/Week about?

It’s pretty straightforward, if a bit broad: it’s a weekly endorsement of something I’ve been liking lately & why. Sometimes it’s as pure as an ice cold McDonald’s Diet Coke; other times it’s a confession that I unfollowed all of my Facebook friends.

I contain multitudes and want to keep things interesting around here!

Who am I?

I’m Jenn, an avid internet consumer with (more than) a few strong opinions. I like what I like, and want you to like it too!

I never wanted to get married until one day I changed my mind, so now I live with my husband and our cat Lola in Chicago. The force ranking of the 3 of us is:

  1. Brad

  2. Lola

  3. Me

If you know the three of us, you know this is true.

Why subscribe?

I don’t know, to make me feel better about myself? To help me relive the pre-revenue glory days of blogging? Whatever your reasons, you can subscribe to get full access to the newsletter and publication archives.

Keep your inbox clutter-free

My biggest tip is to get the Substack app. I did not want yet another app on my phone, but then I learned that I could get all my newsletters in one place & they would never land in my inbox in the first place. I downloaded that thing so fast!

Join the crew

This newsletter is free & I have no plans to monetize it; it’s a passion project & I want to involve as many people as possible. I’d love it if you participated in the comments section, and it would make my day if you told a friend about it!
