" having a shorter list of subjects could lead to criticism about the content being [...] too reflective of one person's preferences" => well, as Amir said, the content is *already* reflective of just one person's preferences. Also, as Cornelius said, the idea of "what makes you happy" implies a very subjective feeling.
So it will always be just *your* view of what makes you happy, your bias. But: making your email shorter (even going down to just 1 item per week) would make room for others to share *their *views, creating a balance. I hope you try the short version on this list (as I barely have time to go through the Signpost!).
