Dear Flyover Reader,

We made it!

Exactly one year ago, the very first edition of The Flyover took flight. It landed in exactly 47 inboxes, and nearly all of them belonged to our friends and family.

This morning, we sent The Flyover to 622,745 readers!

Here’s what we’ve learned:

First: We have the best readers in America.

You’ve told your friends about us, shared your feedback, voted in our polls, answered our trivia questions, clicked on our
stories and advertisers, and encouraged us along the way. Explosive growth like this doesn’t just happen – you made it happen, and we’re so thankful for your readership and support, truly.

Second: This is a lot of fun.

I love coming to work and building something that people really want. We get to write about the entire news spectrum—deadly serious incidents, buried treasure, pictures of the galaxy, business, sports, and everything in between. I also hope that our joy and sincerity come through in our product: we’re not just doing this to earn a living—we really like it. We have enormous respect for our readers, and I hope that’s obvious when our edition lands in your inbox every morning.

Third: Building an email newsletter isn’t easy.

In the early days of The Flyover, yours truly would often fall asleep on the couch while writing, then wake up in a panic at 5 AM, crank out the rest of the edition, and hit send. It’s also difficult to get everything right. You surely notice when we make a mistake – and you let us know.  Thank you! We are humble in our mistakes and work hard to get better every day.

We’ve been blown away at your support, and The Flyover can’t possibly exist without it. We have big goals for the rest of 2024, and today I’m asking you to consider helping us make them happen.

Will you help us hire more staff, create more state-specific editions, expand to seven days a week (Sunday edition!), and make The Flyover the best we possibly can by making a one-time, special anniversary donation today?

To be clear: The Flyover will always be FREE.  But your small (or large) donation – to help us celebrate our ONE-YEAR ANNIVERSARY – would go a long way towards keeping us in the air and flying to new destinations!

I’d be personally grateful if you’d consider a donation.

Thank you!
