I’ve just signed up and immediately became a paid user just for this!
Made me incredibly happy to see this feature land in write.as
I’ve got one recommendation and one question.
Based on previous experience with other email subscription providers, if the initial confirmation email is sent using a different name than the blog’s name, people generally don’t confirm signing up to mailing lists.
Currently the confirmation email’s sender name is “Write.as Letters” instead of the blog’s own name, and this will leave many users confused about what’s going on, particularly with custom domain blogs. (Since the only write.as reference they’ll see if they’re attentive is going to be in the footer)
Ideally, it would be fantastic if you guys can use the blog’s own name in the sender-name field of the email, especially for custom domain blogs.
Is the 500 subscribers limit a hard api limit? If not, can you increase it if I reach out to you with my username? I’ll be using write.as for my product’s announcements & news blog, and I have reasons to believe this quota will quickly fill up as soon as start pointing my users to the blog to follow product updates etc.
Many thanks for Write.as & the email subscription addition you’re are bringing. This is a fantastic service combination, and I hope branching out to multiple other mini-side/future-projects won’t slow you down / distract you from making write.as even better each and every day.
All the best,
