Subscribe via Email

Published: Sep 7, 2023

An element of any good website/personal blog is that it allows readers to consume content in a variety of formats. That being said, I’ve spent some time debating on whether to add a way to subscribe via email, because I want to do it in a way that won’t become a pain to maintain. I also don’t want to maintain a separate newsletter that would require a manual copy/paste process.

I looked around at some other folks’ blogs to see how they handled their email distros, and I think I’ve found a solution I like.

Using Buttondown, I’m able to have their system consume my existing RSS Feed to populate an email template that will go out to the mailing list. This is great because it’s all completely automated. So if you decide to subscribe, the only emails you’ll receive from me are copies of my future posts.

A few notes on this:

If this all sounds good and you want my future posts sent right your inbox, you can sign up using the form below any blog post.

Thanks for reading!
