Using Mail Chimp

So far I have setup Mail Chimp just to test run it, I have a email subscription source in the bottom, It looks far more professional for quick short messaging and advertising, possible form of having a nice looking mass email service, but its target demographic to replacing RSS to mail so far isn't standing up.

It could work if used right but the problem is everytime you want to update people about a post it would take 5x more effort and work just to "create a campaign." I am thinking about only using it as possibly a monthly or 4x a year thing to do multiple updates at once. But that is the farest extent of use. RSS feed and subscribe by email is still the best option.

Maybe I am doing it wrong, but it really shouldn't take this much effort in grabbing a RSS feed to a email list, but with Mail Chimp it isn't even doing that, it is litterally just a mass email subscription news letter service which is still good to have but it lacks the purpose in which I was orignally intending to use it as.

How you get Mail Chimp to even work with blogger is very annoying as you have to use a entirely different domain address and this domain provider also has to provide a email service, good luck with that. You may just have to go with a website host, that provides a email service that is more common for some odd reason(what I ended up doing after several hours of attempting). Plenty of these website hosts will offer a redirect domain, if not well you can simply create a redirect index.htm to your site just to verify it.

This method could easily be used to get around though and create spam issues like Mail Chimps over complicated verify domain process is trying to avoid, but to each their own.

Once you finally verify your domain you still have more hoops to jump through but that is the biggest one.
Designing your email can take time, if you use a template they have placement text in almost every block, and there is a top block that looks like it is part of the editor, it is not. It is in every template to preview it.
Remove that before continuing.

You can how ever integrate mail chimp with e-commerce, which mail chimp does very well apparently, you can setup automatic emails that are more personalized from the users standpoint and acknowledge for non-profit, and educate a group of students for teachers.

These things mail chimp does well, RSS feeding Nope, not designed for that as far as I can see, but yet I see people claiming it is the feedburner killer, which I am still using even though it lacks quite a bit...
