Hello! I’ve read all of the wordpress content on stuff like this, all of the ghost content, even a lot of substack and revue. I’ve used them all, and read their blogs/help center etc.
I bring that up because I am stuck in a way. I joined ghost because it is a better CMS, but I don’t quite feel that way about the email marketing aspect.
At least with wordpress or my email tool Automizy, I was able to create actual emails, and format them well. I Feel like in Ghost I can’t quite do that, and as of late just have been sending my emails out via my blog posts.
Not realizing how that makes the person feel. They don’t want to sit there and read an entire blog post, and I don’t want them to. I’d rather just send the first snippet or perhaps make an entire separate newsletter.
However I feel like Ghost in some people’s view is like revue or substack, where the entire blog is just a newsletter. Rather than having actual blog posts, I have one that is 8000 words in length even.
So am I going to have to just make a newsletter tag essentially, and create them separately and then send out the posts by putting them into that new post tag. Each post in that tag will just be formatted as an email?
What are all of you doing?
