A Newsletter Platform Alternative
There is a lot of struggles when maintaining a newsletter platform, but I believe that similarly with hosting your own website outside a platform, one could host their own newsletter.
If you are looking to self-host your own newsletter solution, check out listmonk, it has a nice interface and it is relatively easy to install and use.
When it comes to delivery the emails to your subscribers a nice mail server is Maddy. Email delivery isn’t very straight forward so you will need to do some custom setup and more security stuff to help get your email delivery.
This combination could be a great alternative to manage your newsletter, you will definitely need some expertise to navigate all the setup up necessary but it could be a cheap way to sending your newsletter and also be independent of a service platform.
