Chips + Dips is a newsletter living at the intersection of ecomm, tech, and branding.

When an idea gets stuck in my brain and grows too big and knotted, I’ll unpack it via this newsletter. Chips are small news bites. Dips are deeper dives.

Double dips are acceptable only if you’re snacking with friends and only if you turn the chip around so that the side that you first bit is not the side that’s being dipped. They may crop up here, too.


I don’t write with any set cadence, which means that I’ll sometimes go months between sends. This keeps the newsletter fun for me and ensures that when I write about something, it’s something that I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about. If you’re looking to supplement Chips + Dips with newsletters that are sent more frequently, here are some of my favorites:


Who’s writing all of this? I’m Emily, and I’m a media nerd turned brand obsessive. You can find out more here.

Lastly, please don’t pitch me! My goal is to surface things that other outlets aren’t covering, and the best way for me to do that is by excluding any and all pitched material. I’m not a media outlet, I’m a person sharing their thoughts.
