We’re welcoming in the new week with two simple but sweet updates for you, bug buddies.
First and foremost, we’re elated to introduce our “Research Roundup,” a new section in our weekly newsletter that highlights thought-provoking, peer-reviewed research articles editor burgundy bug has hand-selected to share with you.
Second, bug just released six new stickers as part of her “Mystical Magical Merch Store Update,” which you can enjoy a 10 percent discount on using the promo code “BDZN10.”
Be sure to stick around ’till the end of this week’s newsletter to catch a glimpse of bug’s current major graphic design project, as well.
Being self-employed comes with its own set of challenges: establishing your business, carefully keeping track of your taxes and deduction, generating leads, negotiating your own health insurance… The list goes on and on.

Take a look at who you’re following online and ask yourself why you follow them. You probably follow a few loved ones, perhaps some colleagues. Maybe some of the accounts you follow are owned by celebrities or brands.
Now, think about why you follow a brand on social media. Naturally, it’s assumed that you like the brand. But do you follow every brand you like online?
What’s so special about the brands you follow? What has encouraged you to pledge your online support to them?
