Still dreaming of the day...

..when I might actually need this! LOL

Was clicking through PayPerPost this morning and found a new business that wants to help bloggers set up an email newsletter for their readers...free! It's an email application that supposed to increase traffic to your site if you are interested in that sort of thing.

I'm not sure if any of the "mega-mommy-bloggers" stop in here or that any of MY readers are interested in something this "tech advanced" but this site initially sounds awesome in terms of what it can do for someone trying to get the word out about their blog and staying in touch with those who read it.

According to Zookoda, they can help you with what they call email marketing by managing email newsletter subscribers, enhancing a blog with custom newsletter subscription forms, designing eye-catching newsletters to match a blog's design, scheduling recurring broadcasts for each day, week or month, viewing real-time open, bounce, click and unsubscribe reports, and accessing mobile users by emailing blog content in text format.

This company seems to feel that have an RSS feed is not sufficient enough notice to subscribers that you've posted something new. Instead, they will help you create a professional looking email newsletter and instead of waiting for your subscribers to "pull" the feeds to tell them you've posted anew, this will notify them via email to come by your bloggy home and check things out.

This might be a little advanced for this corner of the mommy blogosphere but might be useful to someone looking to increase their readership enough to participate in placing advertisements or other money-generating options on their blog.

That is a nice find. I have no need of most of that (at this time), but I would like to have all of the blogs (that I enjoy reading)emailed to me! That would be really helpful.
