Final Mailchimp newsletter is done and sent into the digital ether. Relaunching next week as MacroParentheticals through Buttondown. A relief to be free of the overbearing complexity.

@kaa So far, I like what I’m seeing. @cm mentioned it as an possibility when I was shopping around for a new newsletter home - and I’m glad to hear your endorsement of it too. Looking forward to working with it this week.

@kaa Despite some hiccups that you spoke about earlier? Just asking as I also love Buttondown, but still have some unanswered questions. // @twweaver

@crossingthethreshold See for me I was being unfair to Buttondown. I wanted to use it in a way it wasn’t meant to be used. If you want to send an email with the most basic of text formatting (bold, italics and headings, maybe section breaks) and links and you are good. Don’t try to do anything else really. For that it is truly magical. Sadly for my newsletter I wanted more...not much more but a little more. I ended up getting a bunch of other things that I don’t even need in Mailerlite but hey, it’s been good for the last 1.5 years.

@kaa Thank you for that clarification.
