I'd prefer to opt in, thanks

Why did you add me to your email newsletter without my permission? (Strike 1.) Where’s the unsubscribe link? (Strike 2.) Why did you paste everybody’s email address in the To field? BCC Please. (Strike 3.)

Please read “Stop adding me to your email newsletter” by Chris Brogan.

When you’re done, setup an account with MailChimp. Then, you’ll have a legitimate email newsletter with a subscribe form for your website, an unsubscribe link in your emails, and keep your recipients’ email addresses safe.

  1. Thanks for the pointer to MailChimp. Looks good. My Munich co-workers were actually just asking me about email newsletter services the other day, so this is great.
