You have some interesting content on your newsletter
(BTW – I receive a lot of newsletters) though one that is more visual and encourages people to click on would be more enticing. We are all bombarded with a lot of emails daily so it is important to grab our attention.
I am sure it takes time to put together the articles so just a suggestion to improve your newsletter.
