Micro.blog can now manage letting readers subscribe to your blog and receive emails for new blog posts. I’ve posted an announcement and overview over on my blog.
Other details to know about how Micro.blog email newsletters work:
When you first enable this feature, Micro.blog will create a “Subscribe” page on your blog with an HTML form for readers to subscribe with their email address. You can rename this page or delete it and copy the HTML to other pages or blog templates. Micro.blog will always email subscribers to confirm their email address.
For the weekly and monthly options, emails are created around 9am in your local time zone. Monthly emails are sent on the 1st of the month. If you disable and then re-enable the feature, Micro.blog will reset when it thinks the next email should go out, which might mean sending an additional email even if a week or month hadn’t passed yet. Try to avoid changing the settings often.
Micro.blog keeps track of which posts have been collected into an email. It won’t include the same post twice even if you edit it or change the date.
