I was shocked when Mailgun informed me that they would charge me $35 a month to send emails. $35 for sending 150 emails a month is a tad ridiculous. In the end, I managed to switch to a more suitable plan. Since I switched from Ghost(Pro) to a self-hosted install, these costs seem to keep popping out.
It reminds me that this blog is still a modest operation, and every little development is a blessing to me.
New Features for Members
Since I started blogging in 2017, this blog has gone through several guises. WordPress on OpenLiteSpeed, Hugo/Jekyll and now Ghost.
I was drawn to Ghost last year because of its newsletter and membership features. Writing a newsletter was a new frontier then. It also solved my concern about knowing how to write more personally and professionally simultaneously.
I didn't realise that I was growing up with the platform too. Ghost has introduced several new features since I joined. Here are a few which popped up in recent weeks.
