I try not to bore you too much with a lot posts about blogging, which seems redundant. But every once in a while, it is necessary. This is one of those times.

I’ve been trying out various types of email communications for the site, mostly failing. Automattic, the company that drives WordPress’ continued development, as a plugin called Jetpack which comes with a mailer. But I’ve never been all that happy with it, in part because it is just a plain text mailer. I’d like to think that my site and my audience deserves something at least a little snazzier than that.

And so I’ve been looking into MailChimp to deliver my email. Aaah! That’s more like it. Now I can provide you the latest headlines from DFE every morning. The emails are rich with images and scale well for mobile, so its a win/win on that level. And if you’d still like the plain, old plaintext version, well, we can give you that as well.

So I hope you’ll take a moment and sign up to what I hope will be a useful tool for keeping up to date with the science and technology awesomeness that we put out each and every day!
