I know nothing about email!
So, here’s the thing. People subscribe to this blog, and I’ve just moved the list away from MailChimp. You guys may or may not receive the emails going forward…I hope you do, of course, as long as you want to. If not, there’s an “unsubscribe” link in every email.
But, well, sheesh. I’ve been doing everything wrong, for quite a while. I credit David Gaughran with giving examples from his own variety of (mal?)practice, and I agree with him that Tammi LeBrecque’s book is pretty wonderful.
Beyond all that, I mean: I’m going to try to do better. Really.
The worse problems are with the “New Releases” list. It seems to be so polluted with fake signups that, as I mentioned yesterday, I’ve been feeling a bit paralyzed. I’ll try a post to it soon, with some info, and we’ll see how it goes.
I don’t mean the current New Release Club list. That’s all moved over to what ought to be a better place. Though I need to do more work there, too. I mean the people who signed up before yesterday. I hate to just drop them all, but if I can’t filter successfully…well, we’ll see.
So, apologies for my nonsense, and if this first email actually gets through as planned we’ll get things ironed out going forward.
Thanks. And have fun out there!
