CBA E-mail #8: More Blogs, Email List Update
Hello Cubs Blog Army!
I've spent the last two hours working on things around here, catching up on the backlog of new Cubs blogs and updating the sections of the CBA.
Its been since mid-March when I sent out the last update, and since then we have had about 18 new blogs join the blogroll. Some of these have gone on to be studs, and others are already 'retired.' So, if you haven't been down to the CBA site (http://www.cubsblogarmy.com) recently, I suggest you come down and update your blogroll.
This morning I also added a new section because we have gotten so large. There are now "Editor's picks", "Daily Updates", "Regular Updates", "Newbies", "Intermittent", and "retired" blogs. Hopefully the new classification will help some of the newer blogs distinguish themselves and gain readership.
We truly are an army. At this point the email list stands at 109 individuals, so it is hard to keep it up to date. I strongly encourage you to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you want to be excluded from this list.
In the last three months we have had two instances of a spammed message being sent across the list. I promised a zero tolerance policy, but within an hour of the first spam I had received three emails asking me not to remove the list. So, I redesigned the form to avoid an inadvertent spamming, but it happened a second time... so I have changed some of the admin options on the list and you now must be a member of the list in order to send a message. Hopefully this will work in the future.
Finally, I want to offer an opportunity for everyone to get an @Cubsblogarmy.com email address!
I have a thousand email addresses that came with the domain, and I'm willing to offer the addresses free of charge. The email address can be set up to forward to another address such as Gmail (I have some Gmail invitations if you want too), or you can have your own email box with a webmail interface.
Let me know if you are interested in an email address, all the cool kids are doing it :)
Looks like you better update your website bro. You state that Jim Hendry has made great strides to get the Cubs to the World Series. Really? Did the 2005 Cubs induce you into a year long coma that has made you miss 2006 to this point?
