Given the date, I’m a little skeptical of everything I’m reading today. After reading about Kevin leaving In the Trenches I am on high alert for any kind of April Fool’s joke. But many people seem to think that Gmail is, in fact, upping the email storage. That’s cool with me. Guess I really didn’t need to create that second address, eh?
Speaking of that post from the other night, one of the reasons I joined those listener mailing lists, aside from the fact that I do listen to those podcasts, is that I’ve been giving some serious thought to creating a mail/discussion list for my other blog. The forum idea hasn’t really taken off, so I thought perhaps a list where every new post to the blog gets sent out to subscribers and they have the opportunity to discuss the posts or other topics in an email list might do the trick for helping create more of a community around that site. I’ve even toyed with the idea of moving over the current “announcement” email list of posts to this blog to that same format but I’m not sure how well that would work, because so many of you read the RSS feed, and wouldn’t want posts by email. Let me know if you disagree.
I also might have lied in that post. I think I am going to use the blog feature of Yahoo! 360 to move over the travel blog for Finnnegan the Gnomad. There are some limitations of the Gnomad service that don’t exist in Yahoo! 360 so perhaps as soon as this weekend I’ll be putting that together. Also, I checked and I do get to send out invites, so let me know if you want to try it out!
