My blog runs on Ghost. For some time it has a members feature. Last week I decided to enable it on my website.
To offer interested people a way to get informed when I publish a blog or newsletter. Until mid last year I published weekly security newsletters via Mailchimp. I no longer thought the time investment was justified, so I needed to change the concept anyway. Since Ghost now also makes it easy to create newsletters, I decided to use it for future newsletters instead of Mailchimp.
The members feature also allows to make content only available for members or paid-members. I have currently no plans to create (paid)-member only content.
