@094459 do you think you could provide more contextual headings of the context of the articles.

Headings like this "AWS open source news and updates #73" don't tell much and more contextual headings would for improve user discovery within DEV

Also DEV has a series feature, so you can group your newsletter into a continuous series.

Thanks Andrew, I have thought about that - if you look at the very early versions of this newsletter I did exactly that. I moved to this model as it seemed that many newsletters following the approach of {standard "brand name"}{version} followed by a paragraph that outlines what is covered. So I have tried to do that, let everyone know what they can expect so they can either skip and save time or read on. I did know about the series but that feature did not really work well - once you get over a certain number the UX looked a bit odd so it was a conscious choice to not use that (also, I publish externally, so did not want to do anything that would not provide a consistent reading experience)

it's flooding the AWS organization and it's not great for discoverability.
Consider updating your heading, regardless of what is being practiced in other places for newsletter naming convention.
