So, we are on our retreat weekend, discussing all kinds of writerly things. One, is to have a list, or not. I’m talking about the ’email list’ the ‘thing’ that everyone says you have to have. As you’ve read by now, I’m having a little trouble getting MailChimp to work. And it’s not their fault, it’s all mine.
But during our discussions last night, we have read and heard pros and cons to this ‘list’ business and honestly, we don’t see the difference between an email showing up in your inbox vs a blog post. I don’t have anything to sell yet, except eventual books, and don’t really have anything to put or say in a newsletter.
