I’m Stew Fortier. I’m a former CTO who now runs a private writer’s group, Compound Writing.

This site is my blog, which some people on the internet have described as:

β€œ…one of the best blogs on the internet. You’re an incredible writer. That is all – have a great weekend.”

Richard Dawkins and Stew Fortier

I also write a super-short newsletter each week. I read like a madman throughout the week and then send out the best ideas I stumbled across.

A whole bunch of smart, ambitious people read it. You can join for free below.

Start getting the best of the blog.

Every Sunday, I send out a short, sweet email with a few big ideas and little to no links to click.

Just read it, get inspired, and get the hell on with your day.

Here are a few of my most popular posts:

And here’s the full blog if you want to see more.

Hope to see you next Sunday.
