Micro.blog’s new newsletter feature

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

I think the new micro.blog feature for newsletters is the right approach. Blog first, newsletter second. But newsletters are not difficult to set up, they only need to be activated by a checkbox.


Newsletters didn’t kill Blogs

In my IndieWeb bubble, this essay by Robin Rendle about newsletters has been circulating for a few days. It says newsletters have killed blogs, blogs are too complex and newsletters are the future, because they are easier (or at least that’s how I understood it).


Newsletter to RSS

Published on in 🔗 Links

Last month I wrote about my problem with newsletters. Today I discovered the service Kill the Newsletter!. It let’s you subscribe to newsletters by RSS. Therefor it creates a private email address and converts all emails received by this address into an Atom feed to which you can subscribe with any Atom-feed compatible news reader. That’s especially useful for newsletters that don’t provide an archive or RSS feed.
