If you create posts on your website (blog), you can share your posts via an automated newsletter! Keep in mind that every website has a Newsletter Signup and when people signup for your newsletter, they go to your List (on your Main Menu). You can then create a newsletter by fetching your most recent posts and send regular emails to keep your subscribers up-to-date!
