The ProBlogger Newsletter is Back

Posted By Darren Rowse 2nd of July 2008 ProBlogger Site News 0 Comments

Today I’m pleased to announce that the ProBlogger Newsletter is Back!

Add Your Email Address Here to Subscribe

Early on in the life of ProBlogger I produced a weekly newsletter that ran parallel to this blog.

I did this as a way for readers to keep in touch with the latest information about the blog, get a little exclusive inside information on what I’d been doing, to promote new products and services available to bloggers and to make advance announcements about ProBlogger. The newsletter was well received by readers in the main, I could tell this from the emails I’d receive on those weeks that I didn’t get one out on time as people often emailed to ask where it was (always a good sign).

The service that I was previously using to provide these newsletters became quite unreliable and I also became quite busy and so six or so months ago I brought them to a halt. I regularly get emails from subscribers asking if I plan on bringing the newsletter back so have decided that now is the time to do so. I’ve moved the list of subscribers onto my new newsletter service provider (Aweber) and the first newsletter will go out later this week.

Those of you who were on the newsletter previously will be automatically subscribed. If you no longer wish to get them – simply unsubscribe when you get the first email.

For those of you who were not previously subscribed (or if you can’t remember) you can subscribe using the following form:

Add Your Email Address Here to Subscribe

If you’re not sure if you’re subscribed – subscribe again and it will weed out duplicate emails.

What is this newsletter about?

Frequency: I will aim to produce this newsletter on a weekly basis but reserve the right to scale it back to twice a month.

Content: There will be a similar mix of content to last time and it will include:

  • Recaps on the hot threads of conversation on ProBlogger from the last week
  • Inside information on techniques that I’m trying in my blogging
  • Pointing out tools and services that you might find useful
  • Pre-announcements of new ProBlogger site news (there are a few things coming soon that I’ll let newsletter subscribers test before anyone else)
  • Exclusive newsletter only tips from time to time that won’t go up on the blog (or at least won’t appear on the blog for a few weeks)

If at any point you wish to stop receiving the ProBlogger newsletter simply click the unsubscribe link in every email we send. Your emails will always be kept private and unsubscriptions will always be honored.

Looking forward to connecting with you via the newsletter in the weeks and months ahead.

  1. I didn’t know there was a Problogger newsletter. This will come in handy I’m sure!

    YES! Glad to hear that the newsletter is back, it used to be one of the highlights of my week and I was sad when you dropped it. Can’t wait to get them!

  3. The download link isn’t working… or is it just my connection..?

  4. Great news, thanks for bringing it back.

  5. Your blog is a true motivation to keep up the hard work!

    Thanks for everything and keep doing what you do best.

    Looking forward for this newsletter.

  6. Thanks but I couldn’t get the download link to work either. What do I do to get it after closing my browser?

  7. I didn’t remember you had a newsletter. Anyway, it seems that from now on my inbox will be getting one more email per week — or perhaps twice a month, which would be perfectly fine too. :-)

  8. @ Patrick: Look for the address in your browser’s history

  9. I never knew you have a newsletter before,maybe because I’m one of your new readers,but I think it is a great idea.I get lots of information and learn new things by subscribing to your feeds and now getting the newsletter will be an added bonus.Thanks Darren.

  10. if you can’t get the podcast to work stay tuned – I’ll include a link to a spot where you can download it in the first newsletter.

  11. Looks great Darren! As many others stated I didn’t realize you used to have a newsletter! Should be good. :)

    I can download the MP3 file without any problems.

    Thanks for the newsletter Darren, finally it is back after almost 1 year.

  13. Very cool, thanks for doing this and look forward to reading, listening and learning even more!

  14. Looking good, congrats on newsletter comeback!

  15. That is wonderful, sir. I have been reading your blogs for a long time. I have been very much impressed with your blogging skills. Also, you seems to be quite maured personality. Thanks for the invaluable information. You are the blog guru.



  16. Considering each post gets between 20-247 comments, I’m curious as to how you will pick the “hot topics” for the week? :-)

  17. One minor point… Patsi’s name is spelled with an i not a y — I know she would want it spelled right! :-)

    Thanks again for spending time with us last week. It was a great interview with lots of excellent tips for bloggers.

    Blog on!

  18. Suhweet, Free resources! This is why you are such a good blogger.

  19. problogger’s newsletter is much welcomed from all of us..cheer5!

  20. Thanks for everything and keep doing what you do best.

  21. Download worked fine for me, but I listened to it from the page, anyway.

    It was great to hear your voice. Somehow the information sank in more when hearing you say it, even though I must have read 100 articles here on your blog.

    And congratulations on the new baby!

  22. Hi Darren,

    “I’ve moved the list of subscribers onto my new newsletter service provider (Aweber).”

    Does this mean you took your email subscribers list from Feedburner and started a newsletter email list with these people on Aweber? I didn’t know this was allowed. If so, that’s cool!

    I’ve been planning to start a newsletter via Aweber for my new blog subscribers, but was worried they wouldn’t want to subscribe twice on my blog — first for an RSS/email list and then for a separate list for a newsletter. If I can “migrate” my RSS/email list into Aweber, that would be perfect!

    Hope I’m making sense with how I’m wording this.

    btw, this was the Q I was looking for an answer to on Feedburner/Google Help site when I saw your query to Feedburner and we Twittered about it earlier this week. Did Feedburner ever get back to you??? Aweber is easy as pie to reach and I love using their email list service for another niche.

  23. Subscribed. Now, I would like to know what are the benefits of the newsletter over the feeds. It sounds like a step back into what we were doing a decade ago.

  24. That’s great Darren–I’m looking forward to this! :-)

  25. Wakish is in the list too ;)
    Thanks for the podcast.
