A few friends and family members have requested that I set up a mailing list to notify them of when I post a blog entry. Reason being that they don't follow facebook as much as others but they do check their email regularly.
The end result being thus: I will be setting up a mailing list in order for people to find out when a new blog is posted. Rather than having to commit to being on another media type (facebook, twitter, etc.) you can just check your email and know there's a new post.
For those wanting to join, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and in the subject heading write "Mailing List."
