    This looks great, is there a way to add images into the body of the actual newsletter though? I can see how to add youtube but not image files.

    I have subscribed to all the newsletters on here, so I hope they're not too frequent!

    to add images, you need to just use html image tags. you know:

    img src='thisisyourimageurl.jpg'

    You need to store the images somewhere online and just refer to them.

    Nice one thanks, I was sure it would be something simple like that...

    This is the problem whenever I stumble into this forum, some little part of my mind that's been itching an idea always gets scratched. I've been wanting to start a new email list for awhile, it feels very old-school and, after extensive research of the market, I've discovered that not everyone follows my scattered twitter/blog/facebook/tumblr posts that contain important information. This is a good solution.

    Signed up - mine will be a gossip-heavy summary of all the action on Weaponizer, in one handy email. Been meaning to do something like this for a while, and have set up a mailing list using mailchimp, but this looks even more handy in terms of functionality. Signed up for all your letters too, look forward to reading them! I always loved Bad Signal, the idea that it may spawn a handful of innovative babies is enormously exciting.

    Friendly Fire - the Weaponizer Newsletter


    *edited to add - I'm actually giving Weaponizer a break over December to plan some shenanigans, so probably you won't get much from me until January. Come jan, I should have some exciting news.

    I started one and followed a bunch.

    Some Days You Get The Thunder, Some Days The Thunder Gets You

    Ramblings about the sort of books that want to make you sing punk rock songs and the sort of punk rock songs that spring therefrom.

    Well, now I have one.

    I'm thinking I might experiment with this. See what I can do.

    ohh go on then

    Brain Juice

    I was trying to knock something like this together a while back. Thinking that because most internets people handle there data using an RSS reader and rarely visit the site itself, that a blog doesn't actually have to exist in a fixed address.

    Also because my smartphone isn't Jobsian browsing is shonky at best, it's nice to have solid bits of text to read in email form, the one function my phone does well.

    Turning email into RSS hmmmm

    Reading back on this, I have to say I'm touched by the few people who said they missed Bad Signal. Thanks for that. Been a year since I shut that down, now...

    It'll sound all 'kiss ass' now that you've said so, but the Signal emails were always a nice bit of "hi from Warren" in my inbox. I enjoyed them.

    will start my own as soon as I think of a decent title. I've already subscribed to a few :)

    I have subscribed to several of the lists mentioned here and have received very little in the way of material. Only Oddbill, I think, has sent anything with any consistency. Am I still the only person using this?

    This is interesting--half tempted to try this myself, but...don't know if I have anything to say.

    I've been using it, have posted 10 times, I think. New one should be coming up soon if you're interested.

    Really enjoying everyone's TinyLetters, particularly Ginja's. Some great links, and really insightful thoughts on writing from him. Great stuff. I also really loved BadSignal, it was an island of sanity and inspiration which broke up my day as a call centre wage-slave back in 03-06... Having some old-fashioned newsletters to read again is a nice blast from the past.

    It was pretty much the reason why I bothered to check my emails regularly. It was sort of a cross between the interesting and sometimes thought-provoking content that gets posted to the blog and the deranged ramblings of your twitter feed.

    Dammit, just as soon as I get my head into 2011 I'll have to start using this. (Am quitting Tumblr for the sheer amount of time it helps me waste - then funneling that time into some serialised fiction I hope.)

    Ok, just realised that I missed this the first time around because I was on holidays. Still going to subscribe to everyone's lists and see who's still using it.

    I'm amazed to see that tinyletter is still running. I signed up a few months ago, sent my newsletter, nothing turned up. My friend signed up, also nothing. I emailed them, no response. Just tried again and couldn't get by the registration page. I'm doomed to never newsletter. It's the world's loss/gain

    I'm still using it, to send out silly comics every so often.

    And Oddbill's newsletter is super awesome <3

    @Cameron C. - Hey, thanks!

    Volume 2 of the Occasional Bitslice will begin transmission in February.

    I'm really intrigued by all of this. I've signed up, but have yet to do anything. Very curious as to how it's different from starting a google group.
