Sorry if the newsletter popup bothers you… using the blog to work out the kinks. You can sign up if you like or just close it. There’s still a bunch of things to take care of such as going to a thank you page and working on the timing etc. I’m using MadMimi for the Newsletter, and a separate plugin SimplePopUp (WordPress) for the popup part.
One of the things that is pretty amazing is that you could – if you wanted to – put a different popup on every post (I think).
