  • How I built ✨ a Bespoke Email Newsletter Service
    For those of you old enough to remember, it was an extremely simplified newsletter creation tool that was eventually acquired by Mailchimp. I really appreciated the pure design and focus of this previous company that I decided to name my service as an homage. Source: 2 months ago
  • Self-hosted newsletter tech stack for $0-7/mo
    Tinyletter - I only heard about this source later on, so it wasn’t relevant, but I might’ve used it (note: it is part of Mailchimp). - Source: / over 1 year ago
  • I was bored and made a short little newsletter that I may end up doing on a weekly basis. Let me know what you think!
    For how to actively distribute the newsletters if you go the email route there’s several services (unless you’re cool with just whacking everyone’s email into a BCC list and sending manually, of course) you might find Tiny Letter useful.

  • First Year of UI Dev Newsletter
    The first thing was to choose my newsletter app. I thought about using Mailchimp, as I had previous experience with that platform. Then I learned about Tinyletter (a more inferior version of Mailchimp). I decided it has everything I need, from a subscription list to a simple HTML editor. - Source: / almost 2 years ago
  • Newsletter service for small blog
    I have some friends who do a TinyLetter, works pretty well. Don't know about APIs but it's run by mailchimp (and is free) so worth checking out, might have what you want. Source: about 2 years ago

Oh God, It's Raining Newsletters - by Craig Mod
Buttondown is a (somewhat) recently launched NAAS built by a very engaged developer, beautifully designed, that looks like it might be the new TinyLetter.
