How to Subscribe to a MailChimp Newsletter


In my opinion, running a blog and creating content is not as difficult attempting to engage with your audience. There are a lot of factors that prevent you from having great engagement. From inconsistency of posts to not providing value to your readers, your blog can fail really fast. One of the best ways to foster a relationship with your reader (and what I’ve learned is one of the most important things to have) is through an email list.

So when I decided to write a book, I knew I wanted to give my faithful subscribers first dibs at purchasing a copy.

But getting people to subscribe correctly has been a challenge. What I thought were pretty clear instructions are obviously not as clear since several people and and a dozen or more haven’t completed the steps. That causes them to miss out on valuable information without them even realizing it.

Because so many people have been struggling, I’ve taken the time to go through the process step by step (with screenshots) to show you how to subscribe to a MailChimp newsletter. What is MailChimp? It is an email marketing service open to anyone with a message to send to their audience, clients or customers. There are so many benefits to incorporating email marketing into your business plan but laying out the details of that is not the purpose of this post. Let’s continue, shall we?

Those of you who know, know that I live for a natural face beat. You know, a nice nude with a pop of lip color. Maybe a little eyeliner to jazz it up. But not by much. Since it is the month we celebrate love, I wanted to create a look for Valentine’s Day that was natural, yet glamorous at the same time. To achieve this look, I enlisted the help of my trusted friend/sister, Naomie of Blushed By Naomie.

The Pay Black Movement

The Pay Black Movement

One of my childhood friends recently moved back to Atlanta temporarily. She’s one of those genuine friends that really isn’t easy to come by these days. And one of the few people that I can truly say has been true to herself through all of her years. We got to chatting about the ups and downs of entrepreneurship, when an idea sparked to start something called The Pay Black Movement.

The Devoted Routine of a Crazy Freelance Life

It is day twenty of the new year and also my third year of being a freelancer. I survived! There were many times I really didn’t think I would make it. Things got pretty crazy after quitting my job in 2013. There have been many ups and downs and lessons learned but I’m so grateful for being on this journey. But real talk, you really need a routine as a freelancer. A routine that you can be devoted to following. Without a routine, you are like a chicken with its head cut off – directionless! I recently implemented a new daily routine and wanted to share it with you. This is brand-spanking new for me so yes, I will slip up and that’s okay. So if you’re interested in freelancing or are a creative without a routine, get into this.
