How should we do our Newsletter?

  1. Just created a website for a gym in our town and we would like to start up monthly newsletters. I know we could do one through a service like Mailchimp, but would it be possible to do it through our WordPress site? If we dedicated the blogroll to these newsletters and had all of our subscribers type in their usernames to "follow our blog" through their email. Which option would work better?

    The blog I need help with is forksfitness.com.

  2. To make a long story short to use Aweber you need to hire a web host http://wordpress.org/hosting/ and set up your own WordPress.ORG install. http://wordpress.org/ There is no upgrade you can purchase that changes this. See WordPress.com vs. WordPress.org: The Differences http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    If you want to use MailChimp with your WordPress.com site you can do so by creating a link to the signup form on MailChimp. Here's the info from MailChimp Support http://kb.mailchimp.com/article/how-to-add-a-mailchimp-signup-form-to-your-wordpress-blog

    Lastly, there is no newsletter feature at WordPress.com but this article discusses a workaround you can use > http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2010/10/07/wordpress-com-newsletter-subscriptions/
