So Glad You’re Here!

Welcome to the Design Mom newsletter, written by me, Gabrielle Stanley Blair — currently living in France, being curious about pretty much everything, writing viral Twitter threads, hosting discussions about current events, and parenting 6 kids, while renovating a house from the 1600s.

What can you expect from this newsletter? My thoughts in response to current events, links to other writings or stories that I find interesting, and whatever else this community is feeling curious about. I’ve felt a call to amplify women’s voices since I can remember, so I’ll be doing that too. The newsletter is free and will be published weekly.

If you enjoy what I write and share — on Design Mom, on Instagram, on Twitter, or in this Newsletter, consider supporting my work for $5/month. You can think of it as a tip jar. Readers like you allow me to keep all of these spaces sponsor-free.

Writing and creating social media content has been my full-time job for over a decade. I love it and am consistently blown away by how amazing it is to have a platform and community where I can publish what I create and then learn from you through your comments and reactions. Thank you for reading and sharing my work.
