Hello Flyover Reader!

We’ve officially survived January.

Have I ever mentioned that I don’t like the first two months of the year? Christmas is over, the weather stinks, and it’s generally gray and drab outside. However…

Retreating indoors has its benefits. It’s a great time to work on new projects, and we’ve been busy. 

In January, we jumped to 550,000 readers, hired two new employees, and launched a brand new newsletter: The Texas Flyover

It was a jam-packed month, but we’re just getting started for 2024. We want to reach another half a million people, and we’d love to create a second state-specific newsletter.

All of that work requires people, of course. We need to hire a few more smart, hardworking Americans to meet our goals this year.

If you enjoy The Flyover and would like to help us grow, would you donate today?

We count it as a privilege to bring you the news (and a few laughs; I can hear our head writer cracking up as I type this. Something good must be coming).

Thanks for being a part of The Flyover family
