Sent the first newsletter!

Evan Halley @EvanHalley

This was my first time managing an email campaign of any type and my first time using MailChimp to do so. The goal for my first issue was to setup a process for curating or creating content for the newsletter. For curation I built a Trello board I can use to store links to articles I may publish. As I get closer to the publishing date I'll find a handful of articles I think are good and I begin summarizing. Once I have enough for the next issue, I build the email in MailChimp.

So far so good, I'm still tweaking my writing style and getting a feel for what and what doesn't work with regard to the content and marketing the newsletter.
