I did have a thought, which I wanted to run by y'all and get your advice. My author questionnaire from HarperCollins asks whether I have a newsletter for my readers -- and I was about to say yes, and realized that in fact, I don't. Bizarre, but true. So I'm thinking I should set something up, which would essentially be very brief occasional mailings announcing places I'm coming to read at, stories or books coming out, new projects I'm starting, etc.
Thinking about this, I also thought, hmm...maybe some of the journal readers would prefer to get the journal in e-mail. Which Jed says would be fairly trivial to set up.
So here's my question:
Would you sign up for:Inquiring minds want to know whether it's worth the trouble to set these up. :-) And yes, the announcements list would probably not have any new information that didn't also appear in the journal, but it would be in convenient condensed form. I could imagine that someone might prefer to occasionally dip into the journal on the web, when they had time, but would like to be sure that they heard about events and the like in e-mail. Maybe?

b) a journal-in-e-mail list
