Announcing The TueNight Social
“A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.” ― Yoko Ono
Well, hello! Margit here.
Today we’re announcing big changes for the TueDo List.
As most of you know, our newsletter has been the foundation of the TueNight community since day one way back in 2013), and it’s been a tremendous space for us to share our stories, obsessions, profiles, and links we know you’ll love.
We’re excited to unveil The TueNight Social, our new home base. It’s everything you already know and love about TueNight and the TueDo List, with the ability to interact more with our stories, our writers and each other.
You’ll still get the weekly TueDo List delivered to your inbox every Tuesday – but by becoming a paid subscriber, you’ll be able to comment on weekly threads, participate in conversations, stay connected with each other, access exclusive content and more.
The cost for the paid subscription is $5 a month, or $50 a year, or $100 for those who would like to be a TueNight Hero and truly support the work we do.
Here are your subscriber goodies:
Exclusive, subscriber-only posts like our Weekend Watch List and It’s Me, Margit
Access to open threads where we dish on all the usual midlife joys and quandaries like hot flash remedies to Gen-X nostalgia to the best place to buy a bed. (As you know, I have thoughts on that)
A monthly “Ask Me Anything” (AMA) chat with special guests and experts
You’ll be able to comment on all posts and be in the mix of the TueNight Social community

Bragging rights to tell the world you’re supporting TueNight’s work to amplify the power and stories of grown-ass women 🤘
Nearly every single week, for eight years, we’ve been publishing this little newsletter you’re holding in your hands. Only a few weeks after we started it, we decided to call it “The TueDo List” because we realized that’s what it kinda was — a grab-bag of tv shows, books, stories, and midlife goodies we wanted y’all to know about and DO. Even while I was going through cancer treatment, we kept the newsletter rolling, thanks to the support of many editor friends. I know for many of you — because you tell me these things in nice emails — the newsletter has kept you going during your own bleak times. Our goal has always been to tell the truth about the chaos, the challenges, the joy, and oh, yes, the hilarity of what it's like to be a Gen-X woman in midlife.
We couldn't produce TueNight without the help of so many great writers, editors, photographers, and social media folx. Your paid subscription means we can continue to support their (and your!) great work and keep coming up with new ways to surprise and delight us all.
My personal goal is to tell stories — and have conversations — about midlife that no one is really sharing anywhere else. We’ve seen the beauty of that in our communities on different platforms over the years, but have also realized that we have an awful lot of “places” to manage (TueNight.com, TueNighters and the TueDo List here on Substack. Our social media editor Liz is always like, “Er, where am I sending people?”). And, we’ve wanted to access more of the cool community elements that Substack has to offer. So this was starting to feel like a no-brainer. We are already here!
We know that some of you like our newsletter as is, and we’re so grateful for that. We’re changing nothing about the actual TueDo List and you can keep getting that for free. The weekly newsletter goes out to everyone.
I’m pumped about our new community and I hope you are too. We’re going to have FUN. Honestly, that’s all I want this space to be. Because we need more fun and joy in our lives right now. I plan to bring it.
That said, I completely get it if even an additional bill is one too many and I want to make sure everyone feels welcome. You don’t have to make a case for why — just email me and ask (firstname.lastname@example.org).
