As you say in this episode, I use Mailchimp.com for my newsletter. Spellcheck works just fine. It has a slick interface, and offers some pretty powerful features. It’s unrealistic for me to worry about what I’d do if I hit the two-thousand subscriber limit. Frankly, that rather sounds like a good problem to have. I use my newsletter as more of a distribution tool than anything else. It’s free at my subscriber level, and is likely to stay that way for a long time.
It is true, though, that Mailchimp, as a company, is really focused on the idea of newsletters driving revenue. To them, they are primarily a marketing and sales device. My usage is not theirs, so I don’t feel especially pressured to follow that model. I have looked at other newsletter tools, but many seem inadequate in one way or another, while others are clearly overkill. I may make a change at some point, but for right now, I’m pretty satisfied with Mailchimp.
