I think the purpose of your blog is so important in making these kinds of decisions. As a Life Coach, I want to build relations with people so that they sign up for coaching. I send a full mailing to their inbox once every two weeks. But like you say, Claudia, it comes at the expense of click ‘throughs’ to my website. Sadly, Google and I don’t have the same values about what’s important! At the end of the day, it really comes down to finding a balance that works for you.


I’ve not looked into using newsletters for my blog, to be honest I don’t actually read many that I’m subscribed to and end up unsubscribing from them. But this article has made me rethink, I like the idea of having a small excerpt from a post in a newsletter so maybe I’ll look into it! Great post


I just started using WP lately and still adjusting to its interface and my blog has just started earning subscribers but like Robert, I haven’t sent out emails yet.


I actually love the idea of sending personalised message to your newsletter subsribers. It gives a summary of your blog per month for instance and I guess readers would appreciate it more that way.


A nice recommendation of not just emailing the content of any post. Will perhaps consider this when my subscription reaches to a certain number. I also love how you explain everything. Very thoughftul of you to share this to your readers.

I’m just starting my newsletter even though I don’t know much about it. I have a few subscribers, but I just need to find the time to write the newsletter. I feel like I have a hard time keeping up with my job and blog as it is. But I agree that it’s pointless to email the content of a post. Give just a little taste and let them find the rest!


When I began using WP, I already altered the reader settings to avoid a lengthy homepage. I am still yet to decide about Newsletters. I must admit, I do open some but more often than not, I just send them to trash.


I have yet to use newsletters on my site. I do not like the idea of offering something for free just so people should sign up. Anyway, I did have a plugin to collect emails and that’s all I am doing, and I have not send emails yet. I think I should start doing this when I hit somewhere around 400-600 uniques per day. Otherwise, I still need to prioritize my time.


great point. I am going to look into that eventhough I don’t have wordpress.
