March of 2015 marked two years with my email list. When I created it back in 2013, I had basically only created an opt-in incentive and then ended up forgetting about it. I would send emails whenever I felt like I had something to say (not very consistently). In May of 2015, I finally decided it was time to get serious and start pouring love into my list.

Six months later... my email list had doubled, and I was getting more engagement than ever.

It's not just about sending random emails whenever you feel like it or growing a huge list of people that you have absolutely no connection with. That little decision to pour my heart into my community led me to growing my list faster than I ever had and actually building real relationships with those subscribers. 

Now it's my goal to share what I've learned about email lists with passionate bloggers and small business owners, in the hope that more people can start creating these amazing email lists that their communities rave about and helps them grow their brand all at the same time.
