If this is your first time to my blog (first, welcome!) or you haven't been back in a while, you might notice a pop up asking you to join my new-super-amazing newsletter.
I'm generally the type of person that will start trying new things just to see what happens. I have always wanted to start an email list of people that I could communicate with more closely, and I've learned that popups are a great way get people to sign up!
For general reference, I'm using SumoMe to render the popup. It's created by the good folks over at AppSumo, so I don't think I can go wrong with it.
What do you think? Are popups super annoying? Are you more likely to register for a newsletter that has a popup?
I plan on watching the numbers over the next couple weeks and seeing how it does for my traffic, and the sign ups to my list.
By the way, if you accidentally missed the newsletter signup and want to get on it! Head over to http://kevgriffin.com/newsletter/.
