Supposedly TinyLetter won’t be shutting down in 2018 but it seems like it’s being sunsetted and/or merged into the larger MailChimp suite of products. Although that’s probably okay for most TinyLetter fans I’ve always wanted to experiment with a new setup that’s optimized specifically for writing Markdown and that’s only since Adventures doesn’t need an elaborate layout or anything, in fact I don’t even want those emails to be pretty. Thankfully however it looks like such a tool exists already: Buttondown by Justin Duke.

There’s so many cool things about this project, not only the features and copywriting which all appear to be outstanding, but also the fact that Buttondown’s running costs are public, too.
