Headless email services

So, although the newsletter itself is still sent using Buttondown, and it’s Buttondown that handles my subscribers, the archives now live on elliotjaystocks.com/newsletter and the individual issue pages are customised to look slightly different to the rest of this site. And, because the newsletter signup form lives on this site, too, I’m effectively using Buttondown as a “headless” email service — something that’s near impossible with most of its competitors.

Interesting rundown on how to set up a self-hosted newsletter with Kirby and Buttondown. I had same workflow for Run161 newsletters, only using WordPress and Convertkit.

More people should do this. Because it reduces lock-in to whatever services you’re currently using.
