Hi Stephen,
Some good points here about promoting your blog through your email list. Personally I unsubscribe from newsletters that send me an email every time a new post is published unless they publish a new post sporadically.

I usually subscribe to RSS feeds for blogs that I want to stay in touch with and read their posts.

Good thoughts there. What do you think is annoying them? Is there to much content that is pitching? How about frequincey of emails? Is the conntent entertaining?…..Commpeling? You might ask your readers through a survey what they like or do not like. Nothing like going directly to the source. By the way that link is fixed now, I would love to see what you have to say in the comments.

Hi Stephen and thanks for this tip. I have a tiny mailing list on MailChimp that I have rarely used. I’ve decided that when I write a good post I should share it with my subscribers. I agree with Justin that a list that sends too much mail becomes a nuisance. Still, I subscribe to several sites from which I genuinely want to read new material.
