I have been doing research about starting a mailing list and newsletter for my blog. I have read that it is an important aspect of maintaing contact with readers. I am starting to have better ideas of how the tech aspect works and what I would write.
I have checked the following options so far: MailChimp, Tiny Letter, MyEmma, ConstantContact. Based solely on features, I would be inclined to start with Tiny Letter because it is free (and the capping number is 5000 subscribers) and I am unsure that I need all the business assets of MailChimp. MailChimp would be alright as until 2,000 subscribers it can remain free, and the money for upgrading is within my financial range, should the list go beyond 2,000.
Yet, another problem has appeared which is probably going to impend any newsletter project, unless I find another way. Per their terms of service, both MailChimp and Tiny Letter have you feature a physical address in your footer. I am not willing to let mine be featured publicly, and a postal box isn’t an option for me at the moment. With even more research, it seems that the physical address is a requirement for all newsletter / mailing list service. I was really eager to start one, but because of this, it will have to wait several months at least. In the meantime, I can continue to gather information.
So, my question is: what service you use for your newsletter (if you have one)? Thank you in advance for any comments/tips!
