Newsletter

 

Sign up at this address. I promise I won’t fill up your mailbox with a million things. I’ll send weekly emails at most, probably once a month.

Why did I start a newsletter?

If you were an avid listener to the Serial podcast, you heard those super advertorial MailChimp ads at the beginning of each episode. It wasn’t too long after that I started getting invitations to sign up for people’s email lists–writers and artist friends who like to keep in contact with their audiences. They all used MailChimp, an email newsletter web app.

Well, I’ve joined those ranks. I like writing to people and I have some things coming out soon, so why not join the MailChimp ranks?

Update: Well, it turns out MailChimp is for corporate people, or tech-heads, or whatever. It’s way too complicated.

And so I’ve switched to TinyLetter, which is owned by MailChimp, but is more for human beings.

I’m calling it what it is: Daniel Nester’s Shameless Self-Promotion Disguised as Newsletter. I was going to call it a DanZine, but that’s a little too cute.
