For some time now I have not been sending out mail to those who have subscribed to our news bulletin. The reason for this is simple: The company who hosts it is asking about $1,800 a month simply to keep the newsgroup active which is highway robbery, in my opinion (that’s $21,600 to send out 12 notices a year!) . I’ve searched the marketplace for other subscribers where one can simply click the sign to join or unjoin as I dislike making an actual store group in SL for the lack of space many people have as to group joining. I have not found one which will not charge me a spectacular cost to accommodate the amount of people subscribed to my newsgroup (They all seem to boost the cost substantially after you pass the 500 or 750 member mark).
Therefore, after December I will no longer be using one. Unless someone knows of a decent inexpensive one and wishes to let me know in-world (Santana Lumiere is my avatar), you will need to rely on this blog, Flickr or when I occasionally spam freebie groups with news as to my store, new products and giveaways and the likes. I apologize for this inconvenience.
