Get Posts Via Email: Testing MailChimp

Back in November, I got a new job, and part of that job is staying on top of current technologies and you, my dear blog readers, are—knowingly or unknowingly—a testing ground. Thank you.

So the current thing I need to understand inside and out, upside and down, is email marketing applications, like Constant Contact, MailChimp, and Aweber, which are my top three contenders after the research I’ve done so far.

Because of all this, I have decided to move from using Feedburner to provide email subscriptions to my blog posts to using MailChimp. If you’d like to sign up to get my new posts in your inbox, click here. Please let me know of any bugs or oddities  in the comments here or by responding to the email.

Notes for Current Email Subscribers

  • I have already imported current subscribers, so if you are currently receiving my blog posts via email, you do not have to do anything. I hope—I’ll let you know if I discover that I’m wrong.
  • Providing everything goes smoothly with this post to the test list I’ve set up, the next email will come from MailChimp via the email address lam(at)lindenamueller(dot)com. You should add that email address to your whitelist, but I think you should still receive the email even if you don’t.
  • If I still have some kinks to work out, it will be a couple more posts before you see the new, shiny email from MailChimp. I probably won’t write another post letting you know that I’ve made the switch, although I might email you a link to the sign up form in a month, just to make sure I don’t lose any of you in this transition.
  • If you stop getting messages containing my newly published blog posts, you can always come back to this post and click here to sign up for MailChimp delivery of my posts.

    Mailchimp has been great for me. Their analytics are more than adequate, and their templates are way easy to use. Good choice.
